So I'm looking for a dark brown boot that I can wear with jeans (boot cut and slim straight leg) that will work dressed up or down. Pretty common situation yeah, but I have narrowed it down to a few boots that I can find that fall in my price range, which is not too high because I won't be wearing them very often and so I don't feel the need to drop a lot of cash on them for the time being --- these will hold me over until I feel like I need better boots.
Which of these three would you guys choose?
Pictured in order of decreasing price. The bottom one can be had for very cheap, which is why it is still in consideration. If they don't look that
bad then I might just grab those. I tried them on in person and they actually don't look as bad as the picture makes them look IMO... but the fact that you can see the tread lines from the side of the boot kind of bothers me. Once again, not as pronounced in person from what I could tell.
