Hey Guys, I'm looking for a pair of black military style boots (not brown) with a distressed look. Not looking for "Just go to an army surplus store" answers. I really like these from Nice Collective, but at around $500, thats over double of what i'm looking to spend. So obviously, price is a factor. (Looking to spend around $100-$200 max) I know my options are limited, but thats why feedback is greatly appreciated. These are borderline chunky for me, i'd really prefer something a little more streamline

These guys make one of the best, most comfy boots I've ever worn, but I do wear them for work:

Made in USA, mine are holding up for six years now, everyone at work swears by these people.

Also try Carolina but they might not be as streamline.
My favorites are the Timberland Surveyors you can find them at Revolve too but they might be a little low cut if you're looking for military

The Loake Banks is a similar style (brogued lace-up ankle boot in distressed leather) for around £125:

You realize that these are in no way shape or form military-style boots, right?
