    my advice is generally wait until you can get something worth getting. Especially with boots, something higher quality is going last much much longer than something low quality. A properly made quality shoes is expensive because of the labor, and leather. usually the First thing to skimp on is the leather, and though it might not seem like it when you buy the shoes, the step from good leather to bad leather is a very very big step. The bad leather just doesn't last.

    Wait for a shoebank sale and get some Dalton seconds, walnut with dainite if you're looking for the most versatility. Or, you could grab some Thursday boot company goods. I know opinions are varied on them, seems a love or hate deal, but they're not work-boot-like, they're at a pretty decent price point for first-quality boots, dainite soles, and they can be resoled by any competent cobbler (GYW just like AEs and others). Leather seems to be pretty nice quality as well. Plus if they don't work out, it's a lot easier dealing with a return to Amazon (Thursdays) vice sending Meermins back to Spain.

    Not sure if you are still in the market OP but I've got a pair of JCP Stafford Deacon wingtip boots (a cheap AE Dalton clone, well-reviewed on this site) with only a handful of wears that I am getting ready to unload. PM me with any interest, i will send pics.

    I liked the OAK ANTIQUE CALF, but if you are considering laces, which would be best for any occasion. Here is the link if you want to check it out : https://jackandme.co.uk/product/bill...e=9%20-%2043EU
