If u wear dress boots as you would wear dress shoes, presumably in an office environment, it should be fine imo.

My initial impression with Jonathan Abel was not very good as they did not even bother to respond me on FB.

But when I finally met them the service experience was pleasant overall.

As for the shoes I will start wearing it next month so no comment at this moment until I wear it for sometime.

Try the brand tuv got? Jonathan Abel.

If he can get MTO for 400, RTW is likely to cost no more than 350.

I have a pair of Junkard’s I wear from time to time. I wouldn’t go trekking in them but they are fine around town.

Try Ed Et Al

Are they comfortable? Need to wear them in? My pinky toe area often gets painful when I wear dress shoes

You might need to get shoes in a wide last then?

can recommend me budget friendly shoes 100+?
starting my 1st office job that requires leather shoes

- bought from rad russel (local brand, poor insoles) from robinsons, wear until dam pain on my feet (US8), suspect i have wide toes
- how to actually measure the correct size? I wear converse US 8 (EU 41)is small at the front, but US 9 (EU 42) is too big, but if i wear sports shoes I use US 9.
- so when i convert to leather shoes, i have trouble finding half sizes 8.5US or EU equivalent.

- also for leather shoes, only black colour is recommended? brown shoes = no black pants right?

- for versatility, i think i am looking for oxford type.

Best first shoes would be a black cap toe oxford... can try local Earnest & Collective, Arden Teal, Gaius Walks... the first two I have had experience with in the past and they are ok with size exchange. Goodyear welted ones can be resoled. If you can bump up the budget a bit more then EdEtAl, Carlos Santos are popular at ~$300.

Bought this with a good price at TOD Knightsbridge in London recently. Their service was very good and they even offer to sell me online in future and send me without VAT.

Overall very happy purchase.
