    SF??? Why do you say SF? Why note Gucci, they are the ones who made them. I haven't seen anyone on Styleforum wear them.

    Because Gucci was never a SF approved brand. Tacky logos are anathema to the timeless gentleman!

    Suede bluchers or suede chukkas. I think calf leather is too formal, even in an informal style like a chukka.

    J Crew has some decent suede bucks (Goodyear welted, brick red soles) for $200. They can usually be had for less with a coupon or promotion.

    From these two I would go for plain too. (But really, I would add some money and go with Meermins).

    I think I prefer the lug sole, as this is supposed to be a casual shoe for jeans. The leather soles are hard on the feet, and I don't need that all summer long. The formality of clicking along in leather soles clashes with the casual jeans, and is one reason I am looking to replace the dress shoes paired with jeans.

    I went with the plain toe for $74 at LE.

    I have them and the suede as well as the construction is very cheap. I would rather spend more and get some Alden or something else that will last > 1 season.

    Maybe these?

    Good luck!

    "Any shoe under $250 will explode in 1 year" is a SF myth that exists no where else.
    I have a pair of beater $90 J&M's that take all the extreme weather abuse, and they are going on 10 years...
    The LE will last more than one season. They will last 5-10.
