    A weird one that I kinda like was the AE Jodox. Double leather sole, split good year welt, and two eyelet lacing. Odd combo of sleek and casual.
    I liked the Jodox in person but it is down the list of shoes I would own. Don't know how it would fit in. Similarly I want to like the Grantham but I have not seen them in person and pictures aren't doing it any help.

    I've had them in my hand and tried them on. They are an unlined Strand with casual welt and sole and the upper is pretty floppy without a lining. Without the lining and the suede not having much thickness they have a little more room in them than a Strands. The suede quality is not anything near the CE Stead on my chukkas. BTW, the Saukville is the same suede but with a lining. At the price I paid for my Saukvilles, I can live with thin suede.

    Thanks for the response on the Strandmok 2.0. I'm curious about the below Aldo shoe. Not really an Aldo fan but I like the casual look of it and it's reasonably priced. Seems like it would fit in right about a boat shoe without looking to dressy

    +1 to this. Suede bucks in what Cole Haan calls "milkshake" suede would be ideal for Miami/warmer climates. New Republic by Mark McNairy has some solid choices, on sale currently.

    Your aldo choice made me think of this:

    I think it would fit well with the Miami vibe.

    I have a pair of these my wife got me during the anniversary sale. They're super light weight and comfortable.
