    At the moment I am looking for a pair of boots that aren't chelseas or dress boots necessarily. I dont want work boots or timberlands. Im looking for a dressy adventure boot, sort of like the indy. I am also looking to spend under 300 dollars, which may complicate the matter.

    Does anybody have any ideas on where I should look, what I should go for, or who I should turn to?

    I really don't even know where to start.

    Try red wings

    I've looked, and It mostly just look like slightly nicer timberland shoes to me. Not crazy about them.

    You mean Chukka/Desert Boots? You can get Clark's for about $100. Or do you mean something like Jodhpur? [​IMG]

    I'm looking a bit nicer, but same idea"”like a combination between rugged and dressy.

    Since the Wolverine 1000-mile and Alden Indy have already been suggested, I'll mention White's line of Semi-Dress boots. Unfortunately, they run roughly $400-500, but the style is a very wearable good middle ground between workwear and dressiness.

    I bought my Wolverine 1000 mile for $325 regular. I am sure you can find a better price though. In fact there was a link sent out awhile ago where they were discounted on your first purchase. I lost the link though.

    If they're your thing, I think roper boots are a really handsome shoe. You can find some pretty good looking luccheses for around that much if you search.
