I'm trying to find a couple nice pairs of shoes (leather or otherwise) that will work nicely with items from Freeman's Sporting Club and Engineered Garments. Ideally looking for something as unique / timeless as those brands, and preferably <200.

I'll greatly appreciate any/all suggestions. Thanks!

I would say Red Wings, but I don't know if you'd be able to find any for less than 200.

It might help too if we saw pics of the pieces you are wanting to wear them with.

Aldens, but at a $200 budget look for Allen Edmonds on ebay.

Why must your shoes be so much cheaper than your clothes?

+1. Something nice but it has to have weight.

My uncle swears by these but I have never liked them, not a fan of RedWings either though.

Cheaper Redwings. I have these in Black. They are possibly my most comfortable shoe. Even more so than sneakers or non-boot shoes.

They are made in China but quality is good. Also they are padded/insulated unlike the Classic Lifestyle boots, which definitely adds to the warmer and probably also the comfort.

You can get a pair of Red Wing 875s for &lt;$200 easy. Clarks desert boots are good with slimmer jeans.
