Looking for a pair of lace-ups that I can wear with pants/jeans, casually.. Really looking for some used ones, or something that is fairly cheap. I wear a 9/9.5. This is the style I'm looking for..

They kinda look like bstore shoes. Bstore does opening ceremony stuff too i believe. They're not that expensive but probably not worth retail ($250-350?). I've seen them on sale at places on occasion. You're not going to find a ton of cheap options for opening ceremony/bstore styled shoes. There's a reason they keep selling well. They are filling void in the market for non-high end young, slim, hip laceups. Not many other brands are making similar shoes at the moment. Usually more dressy, or much more casual. Those kind of exist in between. Repettos aren't cheaper, but you may be interested in them as well. Common Project lacups are similar as well (which is why people aren't finding CP cheap lookalikes much) with higher quality than bstore/oc.

I'm pretty sure they are Opening Ceremony, and retail for around $250. To the OP: You might try Swear London's Jimmy. They look very similar to the shoe you posted, and retail for around $160. I have no idea how quality is, I've never seen them in person. Link

Urban Outfitters has a couple of laceups but with a low sole. You should check em out and maybe its your cup of tea. Fairly cheap if I remember correctly. Good luck

I see a good amount of this style of shoe on ebay, in the vintage section. Often I think of posting them here but don't want to start a thread and don't really know where I would put them. I am actually watching a grey pair right now, though I prefer more substantial soles.
