The boots you linked aren't that bad looking. Here would be another good option in your price range.

u/tPRoC · 16 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Go for Thorogood. Redwing if you want something nicer.

u/jdbee · 13 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Here's the blog, and there's a large pdf version of the shoe guide here

“Yes” models:

Slip-on Chucks

Jack Purcell slim, black leather

Sperry Top-siders (The specific pair that’s pictured is a Band of Outsiders/Sperry collaboration that’s discontinued now)

I have no idea

Suede camp/canoe mocs

White suede bucks

Penny loafers (The pictured pair are Bass Weejuns, but I’m linking to a better, less plasticky option that are about the same price)

Florsheim Veblens, rust

Given that this list is heavy on the summer footwear, I’d also add these to make it a year-round list:

Chippewa GQ plain-toe boot

Thorogood Heritage moc-toe boot

Blucher mocs

Tan suede bucks

u/eathbau · 13 pointsr/AustralianMFA

Not sure if it helps but you can pretty much assemble the MFA uniforms:


OCBD - Uniqlo

Levi's 511s - David Jones, Just Jeans, General Pants Co. etc

Clarks Bushacres (beeswax)


Tees - Hallensteins (or Industrie if on sale)

Sweater - Uniqlo

Levi's 511 as above

Vans Authentics (True White) - eBay

u/Irenarch · 7 pointsr/goodyearwelt

Aren't they GYW, though? The boots in the images are these Thorogoods...

u/pillowpuff · 7 pointsr/malefashionadvice

It looks like a moc-toe boot, but it's hard to tell from only seeing the back. I'm not sure of the brand but here are some similar options:

u/SRSLY_GUYS_SRSLY · 7 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'll earn some contempt from other MFAers for this, but I'm excited that you are eager to be a more sartorial Man's Man instead of the twinks, ironic nerd, preppies, and drop-crotch streetwear I keep seeing here. I appreciate their styles, but I want to see more blue collar style.

Footwear: Invest in some good boots Timberlands / Redwings / Thorogood

Pants: You want a slimmer chino, but you need to be able to move in them, so not too slim. Alphas / Land's End / Gap

I wouldn't bother too much with Denim, a single pair of slim fitting dark wash jeans if any for the time being. Quality denim is going to be out of your price range right now. Just don't get any that are pre-distressed.

Shirts: Fit will be an issue here. Your natural build is going have narrower shoulders than men of your height. Since we base successful fit on shoulders above anything else, you might be left with very tight fit throughout the chest and waist. Trial and error will be the only way to go about this, but I'd say avoid slim fit here. I could have this completely backwards though.
No Graphic T's /Henleys / Chambray is nice here in FL / Any patterned button downs (stay away from pearl snaps- we're trying to avoid flair)

Outdoor jacket: Timberland Waterproof!


  • hoodies - They are simple and comfortable, but lack structure and embody the touristy unprofessional look you are trying to get away from. They have their place, but not for what you are seeking right now)
  • Athletic shoes - save these for the gym, not for work
  • Hats - Unless they bare the logo of your workplace. At work is no time to advertise for any sports teams, brands, opinions on your clothing
  • Flashy watches - If you plan on wearing a watch keep the face size within reason and the color and style simple
    *Jewelry - unless it has sentimental value, rings,earrings, necklaces, and bracelets are not what you are looking for

    Haircut note: I'd recommend cutting the sides and back much much shorter, and you can leave whatever length on top. Right now it looks very youthful and wild instead of professional.

u/Acrimony01 · 5 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Don't waste your money on this crap and buy some Thorogooods. They also make one in a Moc-Toe.

Thorogoods are made in the US with great quality leather, legit fit (similar to Red Wing - you may think you need to size down...I personally disagree because of the instep). I waited and got mine for $100 bucks. If you are looking for a real quality work boot you can beat up, or want that rugged vibram sole look, you can't really go wrong with these.

The Tobacco color is fly too.

Also, these Dickies are made of genuine leather and glued soles. Basically, this makes them completely and utterly fake. They will fall apart quickly and smell terrible after a few uses. A good rule of thumb is that if you can't afford real leather, you can't afford that style of shoe.

u/antisocialmogul · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I usually recommend these Thorogoods for workboots in that price range. I have a pair and they are very comfortable despite being a little heavy. Also the plain toe version, which is a few bucks cheaper. I don't know if you can get them in Norway though.

You might have luck finding a pair of used red wings in good condition for around $150. Check the FMF weekly thread and ebay. Make sure you get something with a wedge or other thick sole. I like the vibram christy soles myself (same ones on the thorogood boots above).

u/ggill1313 · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Get some Iron Rangers factory seconds. They go on sale from time to time down to $160. Great, great boot. I got some of the Red Wing insoles for around $25 that made a world of a difference as far as heat is concerned. Size .5-1 size down. If you have wide feet, don't size down to .5 size down, depending on your foot size.

You also have the Chippewa Service Boot. I got my brother some for Christmas and they are actually really nice. The "Cordovan" option looks lovely and is a lot more versatile than one might think as it's a more burgundy color. But it really works in occasions where you would wear this sort of thing.

The Thorogoods Moc Toe is a great boot as well for a different look. These can't be dressed up as easily IMO, but good boots the same. Red Wing has a similar boot if you'd prefer the look of it. It's also a good boot.

For all of these, get some nice wool socks. Darn Tough makes some good ones but I don't like the looks. Anonymousism also makes some good stuff provided you like the colors, but IMO are a bit overpriced. My favorite wool socks came from J. Crew last season. They are thick, warm, look good, and were reasonable priced.

If you have any other questions, let me know!

u/indomitable_snowman · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Thorogood have great value boots. The ones you linked don't seem to be good quality and the design is a little tacky.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

I've got two boots for ya; the Thorogood Moc Toe and the Thorogood Round Toe

u/Tann_Man · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

I got the thorogoods.

Only $118.xx after the discount code HOLIDAY25 (assuming you have amazon prime)

u/Sounds_Logical · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

No those will be trashy. Guaranteed, I know AE... These are a much better option. They're cheap (you can get 20% off right now on Amazon with code BOOTUP14) and they are way better than AE's. Many options there on Amazon find your favorite/cheapest and make sure to use that code.

u/Pittshadowrunner · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

If ya can push that price limit a touch, you can find some Made in the USA Thorogood that you might like.

Sign up for Amazon shoe newsletter for 20% off and maybe these?

u/PepPepper · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

These are quite nice, if you dig the wedge sole.

u/zzzaz · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'd go with CDBs, These, or these

u/coffeegnome · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Lower quality options recommended here often are Thorogoods

u/omgaragesale · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

if you live in a semi-rural area, I'm sure there are boot stores that carry something very similar to try on before you buy. I agree with whirlyboy that the fit sounds sketchy.

if you're not sold on those, there's a Thorogood boot that is very similar but also only have one review, which is quite praiseworthy. personally, I am not a huge fan of the moc toe, but to each his own.

u/dibzim · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Just got these on amazon for $134 ($145 after shipping) and i love them so far. Here's a fit

u/k3nd0 · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

I would recommend the Thorogood Moc Toe.

u/No_Gains · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Look like thorogood moc toe boots. You could look for one with an 8 inch height.

u/thefleeingpigeon · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I've seen those shoes in person, really don't like the quality of them. If you want a quality middle ground these Thorogoods are a great option. Just a tad it more than $150 but a better option for a cheaper, quality boot that isn't Red Wings and also made in the USA

u/thescottster · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

that seems to exactly fit your criteria. idk how no one else has suggested that, it's really commonly recommended. just cut off the flag thing.

u/a2boo · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'm not sure what websites ship to Australia, but I'd look into Red Wings Heritage 6"Moc Toes or Thorogood Moc Toes.

u/hbaas · 2 pointsr/goodyearwelt

That's a pretty tight budget, but you can still find some nice boots. I'd suggest either chippewa apaches, or thorogoods (moc or plain toe). These are both around $130, and are decent boots for the price.

If you don't mind spending a little bit more ($220 or so), you can get red wings (on sale, or seconds), which are, in my opinion, a not insignificant step up in terms of material quality and construction.

u/lobosninja · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

any thoughts on thorogood boots?

u/that_name_taken · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

If it were my money, I'd be looking at Golden Fox or Thorogood.

But, if they're for proper hiking, I'd get proper hiking footwear.

u/BalleR75 · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I just bought these Thorogood mocs do you guys think they will be enough for Chicago winter? Or would i still need bean boots?

u/Rhaka · 1 pointr/europeanmalefashion has the Thorogood Moc Toes on sale right now with the WORKSHOE code. After shipping and taxes, it adds up to ~160 euros to get them in the netherlands, which is about what you'd pay in-store for good hiking boots around here. Just ordered a pair myself.

u/BpooSoc · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

The Thorogood Moc/Plain Toes are a good choice.

$150 with 25% off right now. Full grain leather, Vibram outsole, goodyear welt, Made in USA.

u/bonecandy · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

Iron Ranger Amber Size 8.5D -- $175 (Bought for 290 retail)

Lightly worn. Maybe a week or two. I have some dressier black laces in currently, but I still have the original laces. There's some slight creasing but otherwise looks pretty new.

Thorogood Moc-toe 6" (Galidator color) Size 9D-- $90 (

Worn maybe 2-3 weeks total. Hit once with Obenaufs LP (ready for winter!).

For reference I wear 9 in Chucks, 9D in AE Strand, 10 in Adidas Sambas

Pictures coming later tonight when I get home!

Here are a few pictures of each:

Currently the Thorogood some leather laces on, while the Iron Ranger has some black dress laces. I have the original laces for both. If you want, I can include these alternative laces.

Edit 2: price drop on Iron Rangers and thorogoods

u/pogonotroph · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

How about these Thorogood moc toes + these Chippewas? That way you get to have both your moc toe and your dark brown, super versatile boot. If you sign up for Amazon's shoe subscription emails you can get your entire shoe order discounted by 20%, which would bring your order to something like $225 before tax.

u/rjbman · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

They do.

edit whoops wrong link.

u/cloudedfish · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Dunno about UK options, but this will save you quite a bit.

u/wlonkly · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Eastland is kind of the bottom of the "passably good" tier. If you're strapped for cash then they'll be okay, but if you have a little more you'll be much happier going up a tier. Thorogood has moc toe wedge sole boots in the $150 range with a Goodyear welt and higher quality throughout.

Here they are at Zappos but I think you can find them cheaper than that. I'm not in the US so I can't recommend particular sources, but here's way cheap on Amazon for instance.

u/homemade_mayo · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

Two weeks ago Katahdins went for $168. There might be another sale in a couple weeks if you are willing to wait. No guarantee it will be 20% off, though.

You like the Earthkeepers which are chukka boots and a lot different from the Boyd boots you love. The option for these would be Clark Desert Boots. I wouldn't pay regular price, and they can get down to the $80 range pretty regularly.

Options for NOW would be Thorogoods 1 or 2 from Amazon with the 20% off shoe email coupon or Chippewa's.

You can also get Iron Rangers on sale if you wait patiently. They'll never reach your budget though but they are quality. Toe box is a little big.

You can find more options if you search for boots on FMF. This topic comes up regularly so you might find more opinions. I suggested the more frequent ones, though.

u/pirschc · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Any thoughts on these Thorogood Boots? I'm looking for a decent pair, casual pair of boots for under $200.

u/kyojiin · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

How should I size for a Pointer chore coat? I have a 40 inch chest so going by measurements I should get a medium but I've been told to size down. Would a small be what I need? How should I account for shrinkage in the wash?

Also, what are your opinions on jeans with a taper and moc toe boots like these? I feel like it would look a little off because of how chunky they are.

u/Magichamsterorgy · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I can't think of any similar boots in that same price range right now, unless you wouldn't mind a chunkier silhouette and white vibram sole, which I'm guessing you would.

The main thing is to just look for a plainer boot, I guess. What I don't like about the Timberlands is those weird panels they've sewn on.

u/hellarad · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Golden Fox Moc Toe is supposedly good quality. Thorogood Moc Toe is the other option.

u/trondersk · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I got mine on Amazon for about $130.

u/ZeGentleman · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I completely glazed over you using them in winter. Definitely don't get them then.

I went for Thorogood's earlier. Goodyear welted, pretty nice. Here they are.

u/BronMarlett · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice
u/somekidouthere · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Does it snow/rain a lot in your area or is it just cold?

MFA has its own boot guide, look here

Popular boots on MFA are: RW IR, RW Beckman, My current winter boot is the RW 875, Thorogood Moc, Thorogood Plain, Chippewa GQ, Bean Boots.

All of these boots can be found in your price range through sales and coupon codes. All would be good for light snow except for the first and the Chippewa GQ. Bean boots are the best for heavy snow.

u/newnamerookiebiotch · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice
u/SomedayinaWeek · 1 pointr/Fitness

As a fashion nerd Ill bet that the shoes are the Thorogood Moc Toe boots.

The pants could be from Levis. Not sure - H&M sells pants similar but I doubt thats what he is wearing.

Pants aren't from Levis, but the pants should be from a store that caters to bikers since theres reflective strips on there.

u/-BigBoss- · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Thorogood makes some nice boots, especially at the sub-$200 price point.
American Heritage Moc Toe

u/dannyisokay · 1 pointr/rawdenim

Yeah man definitely. I think the Thorogood Moc Toe is your best alternative to RW at your price. I personally have the 8" version but these are honestly your best bet. There are some different color options too.

u/Noozooroo · 1 pointr/goodyearwelt

Can you give us some more criteria? For instance, what is it about Red Wings that you would like to avoid?

If it's the price, I would recommend Thorogood Heritage Boots (in either moc-toe or plain toe). I've worn a pair of the plain toes semi-regularly for 5 or 6 months and they're quite comfortable. I like the way they look too.

If it's the look of Red Wings that you want to avoid, that's tougher without specifics. Is there any style of boot that you know you like or dislike? For instance, if you don't like the big, chunky style of Red Wings or Thorogoods, you could try these Chippewas which everyone seems to like (but which I have never worn).

u/MrBlueMeany · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Save yourself some grief and get some real boots in that price range from thorogoods or thursdays

u/iamlowsound · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

These are the closest that you are going to get and you have to order them. Good boots, good price. If you are spending an extended time outside, wear thermal socks.

u/curtxcallis · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

If you're going for a more southern / work boot look try these:
Thorogood 6 inch. They look a lot like Red Wings at half the price.

If you want a more casual less "work boot" look, try DSW for brands like Steve Madden or Aston Grey. If you don't plan on wearing them too often, maybe even try H&M. They have a lot more boots online and in store this year.

u/jmbf44 · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I'm not positive but I don't think roughout will do very good in wet conditions. Also I think if you don't like the color of the boot don't buy them, get some boots in a color you like. I'm guessing you want those because you can get them cheap locally, but if you're trying to stay cheap maybe something like this or this might work better for you. Or look for some used Red Wings.

Something with a lugged sole will grip much better than the wedge sole on all of these but I think unless you're running around in snow/ice very frequently you'll be fine, plus you could always get some cleats for them. It'll be pretty impossible to make any boot completely waterproof but they'll be quite water resistant as they are without any conditioner/wax.

Also, check out r/goodyearwelt.

u/Pwntastic1 · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Depending on how much snow is in your area, I would recommend these or maybe these. I think Amazon has a 20% off coupon FALSHOES. Not sure if it applies to both of these boots, I have not tried.

In addition to these boots, for warmth, get some wool socks like these or these. The costco socks are half the price, but owning both, I can say personally that the People Socks are thicker and nicer quality.

u/TheWuggening · 1 pointr/goodyearwelt

Bet. You just saved me some money!

I need aesthetic advice. Black wedges or White?

u/Woollen · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Buying Bushacres as my first pair of boots. Was thinking about adding in something else to cover shipping.

  • Chippewa (Which one though?) Look decent & are cheap. Seem to be recommended a lot.

  • Thorogoods: Looks decent. Cheap. Moc toe or plain? How bulky are these?

  • Doc Martens: Cheap, Slim, I like the look. Apparently the quality isn't that great?

    Thoughts on these boots? Other recommendations are welcome!

    If they are somewhat slim that would be preferable, as I'm rather skinny and have small-ish (9 US Vans) feet.
u/elijha · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I was looking at those the other day. Personally, I think they're just a bit too chunky and I think I'll probably end up getting Thorogoods instead.

u/MrFistycuffs · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I'm not a fan but people do often recommend bean boots. You can also buy something like Red Wings moc toe boot or something similar and apply waterproofing product like sno-seal or Obenaufs to it. I did mine over a year ago and its still good, though I only really wear it during bad winter days, so your mileage may vary, but a jar is good for several applications. Also note that they will darken the leather.

u/IHSV · 1 pointr/preppy

Here is the $149 6" version and the $159 8" version

u/srontgorrth · 0 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

These Thorogood moc toe boots are somewhat similar, albeit a little taller and chunkier.

u/DickPringle · 0 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Check these out in tobacco.

Unlike most red wings they are made in America. Better quality IMHO

u/n_el · -1 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Thorogood makes this boot at a better price... And they're made in the USA.

u/aka_Citizen_Snips · -2 pointsr/TeenMFA

Indeed I can

CDB's are not popular because of their form or materia or styling - they are popular because they are cheap, inoffensive, cheap, really hard to screw up, and cheap.
