Boots for jeans?

I want to get a pair of black boots to go with dry jeans. They're Nudie Straight Svens so they're on the slim side, but not too slim. I tried getting some CT Chelsea's but I sent them back when I found out how shitty the leather is. So what should I get to go well with my jeans and not stick out like clown feet (I have fairly big feet already). I've looked at RM Williams online and I like them, but I'd prefer something I can try on/see in the first place. Price should be kept in the $200 +/- $50 range.

If these or the version in brown went on sale, with a 15% off coupon they'd be in your range, I have them in a distressed brown.

Don't know what country you are in, but have in mind that I had seen in a Bata Shoes (the english company) shop boots that were very close to this. From what I remember they were welted and significantly cheaper. This was in Cyprus but I assume the stock for the season would be identical aropund Europe.

not sure what your size is but there are a few sizes still available: http://www.sierratradingpost.com/pro...-Men-and-Women STP has a great return policy. Still debating on whether to keep the ones I got. Oh, and there's a 20% coupon floating around. Do some searches on the SF if you're interested. -Jeff

these don't look too bad for $150. The closeups appear the soles are stitched and not glued so that's a good start.

I got a pair of Bruno Maglis at Zappos for $160 last year. Not the greatest leather, but not bad for the price. Lately, I've been considering a pair of Fryes to go with jeans as well. Those might be right for you because they have a stubbier toe, so your feet won't stick out.

Just out of curiousity, are Docs considered a faux-pas nowadays? I realize that the quality took a nosedive after nike bought them, but I've a pair of 1460Zs from before the Nike buyout (made in England) that I absolutely love...

I hope not... I think Docs are one of the coolest things you can do to your feet.

I think Docs are always good. It's hard to wear them because they are cut very wide.

Some frye chelsea boots marked way down I've got a pair of these and the leather is pretty nice supple, soles are welted, and the comfort level way beyond what I expected.

I luckily bought several pairs before they were made in China. They are a staple imho and even though they come in and out of trends, old British made ones will be around for a long time.
