    I wear a 10.5 in Converse and Vans. Black leather, with a cap toe or mild brogueing. The Goodyearwelt subreddit took less than kindly to me. If I'm ordering them, I'll need them before Friday, the day of the banquet. If I'm wearing a tie, I'll wear these. If not, my chelseas

    Well, you have asked a nearly impossible question. You can get cheap, or good, or fast, but not all three at the same time. My advice would be to just wear your chelseas. For the future, look at Meermin. No, they are not $150. but $250, but they are about as good a price as you are going to get for a decently made boot.

    It is a little above your budget but the Sanders patent George boot is stunning and is hand made in England and built to last, I love mine.
