Chukkas are a pretty common style. The ones you listed are all nice. The first one you're looking for looks like some cheap garbage that you'd be better off not buying. It looks like some John Varvatos shoes I've seen in the past (Chinese made). They were pretty poor quality IIRC.

I'm not sure the difference between a desert boot and a chukka boot, but there are a lot online. These Ted Bakers look similar to what you are looking for. Hudson also has some with a bit more character. Great look for Fall, and I agree with above, careful on the quality of Chinese versions...

I'm sorry if this appears rude but I've spent hours searching and can't find 1st boot, and I want to reward your time so if anyone can find me the exact boot in 1st pic I'll Paypal you $30. John Varvatos looks most similar but the two indents in the shoe on most JV shoes look threaded whereas shoe in pic looks more refined.

PM me for my paypal address, if you're serious:

It's also available from shoes.com, and several other sites; I just linked the first site I saw on google. Next time, google image search using the photo url; their algorithm is very good.

You read my mind. I bought a pair of them myself.

Based on some reviews these shoes seem a little cheap. Any recommendations under the $600 range for similar shoes?
