I think I posted a link to em before, but these by the same maker dont look bad at all, and it comes in 3 colorways. Never heard of that company so I couldnt comment on function, quality or comfort.

*btw, the ones you linked don't look bad either, I just like the brogueing to add some character so they're not just black

I doubt I would buy either of them at that price especially but +1 on Getsmart's comments. Brogueing makes a big difference.

A bit safe. Isn't there anything more interesting?

Yeah, but not in a good way. I'm not crazy about any of these boots. The sole on all of them looks a little too chunky. Other than that, they seem fine. If I had to choose one, it would be a toss up between the first boots you posted, and Get Smart's.

Those aren't bad, though there are better variations on the concept, and those are Kenneth Coles, which means they're worth about $1.50 and will fall apart in a month.

I think those might be made-in-China Reaction (K Cole's cheaper brand), in which case that would be true. But the Kenneth Cole made-in-Italy stuff isn't bad; I've got a 6-year-old pair that's still wearable.

Ya, I am nowhere near the same level when it comes to shoes as some of the guys in the menswear forum, but I have a pair of Kenneth Cole dress shoes that seem pretty good quality. Again though, I have seen a bunch of Reaction ones that are along the same lines as Sketcher.
