    I need to go overseas for a business trip next week. Don't want to bring any good shoes as I will be in a hot and dusty environment. Look for a cheap pair of brown or dark beige suede Chukkas, but ideally in a slim last like C&J Tetbury ( which I already have). Because of the time factor the source needs to be in Europe ideally. Any suggestions? Thanks as always.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Clarks desert boots as much as the next guy and wear mine 95% of the time but they're not what I would reach for first in a business environment and I don't know anyone who'd call them slim lasted.

    OP, there's nothing about a "hot and dusty" environment that your C&Js can't handle unless you'll be slogging through mud, as long as you follow the usual maintenance routines. But if you must grab a "cheap" pair of relatively slim chukkas then the first thing that comes to my mind is the Loake Kempton which is available in brown suede.
