I agree with your points about the Indy boots more streamlined appearance and easier break-in experience compared to an Iron Ranger. I will probably buy him a pair of Indy boots and if he doesn't wear them during his college years maybe a few years down the road he will wear them.^ I would just go with the Indys if price is not an issue. It's more "streamlined" VS Red Wing (more bulky work boots). Not to mention for most people that are new to RW in general, the hard break-in totally puts them off (VS Alden). OR Thursday Boots are another cheaper option in case he may turn out to be a "sneaker guy" only and doesnt like boots at all.
My daughter is also in College (1st year in UC Santa Cruz) and I visit her once a month and I notice a lot of guys on campus only wear white Nike Airs or converse sneakers. Haven't noticed anyone wearing boots in general.
