I can only afford one pair:

OPTION 1 Alden Men's Unlined Chukka Boot



OR

OPTION 2 Allen Edmonds Special Edition Cappuccino Cordovan Dundee




I will mostly use them with fitted jeans and chinos. pls help me decide

Neither: There are better-looking shoes out there in this price range (why would you want to spend that much, on a shoe that looks that cheap?). Can't be bothered to give alternatives.

There're both great but for jeans and chinos I would go for the chukka.

+1

fitted jeans and blobby chukkas are an oxymoron, imo.

look out for chelseas, if you don't mind the elastics, which are a dealbreaker for some guys.

E. You can get the same colour clark's db for far less and you dont miss out on a good opportunity to get a cordovan boot at a decent price.

Wouldn't both of these boots be considered chukkas?
