    It's not that they're too narrow in general, it's that my foot goes too far into the tapered tip such that my toes get squished together. Which is surprising as everyone seems to say that NDC's run long. Maybe they finally got their act together and decided to start making their shoes actually fit TTS....

    Hi guys,

    I`m searching for a good pair of cheap boots, that are a bit dressy but going good with a casual style and jeans. I would really like Alden Indy Boots in black, but they`re too expensive for me. What do guys think of a pair doc`martens 10 eye, but they aren`t dressy I think. So other good cheap alternatives?

    Thanks

    Wolverine 1000 Mile.

    Retail is $325 or so (still cheaper then Alden) but can be had for around $200-275 if you're patient.

    And I wouldn't call DM 'dressy'.

    No such thing as good at $100. You get what you pay for. Save up and get something decent

    If you're really cheap like me,

    http://www.shoesinternational.co.uk/...s/m7b/p/13735/

    I've heard good things about Grafters, especially considering the price point. I really want a pair of these for F/W, but I just dropped close to $500 on new shirts so they'll have to wait.


    I've only heard bad things about Grafters, as a search will tell you.

    What's the quality like on Frye boots? I was thinking of getting these Oliver Chukka's in brown to knock around in.

    Recent reviews have been negative for the non-USA made boots.

    At full retail, your best bet is probably the LL Bean Katahdin boot suggested by ubc121 above, I think. $159, or thereabouts, manufactured by Chippewa. Do a search on these, I think there is a review thread somewhere.

    If I were you, though, I would familiarize myself with the better brands and try to get something on discount.

    One time I tried on a pair of Doc Marten "James" boots and the pull tabs came off in my fingers when I tried to get them on my feet. Complete and total junk. They looked hilariously bad.

    Maybe a pair of clark's desert boots? Even those are shoddy, but fulfills your request, except they aren't very dressy.
