There is no such thing as "boots for the office". Your choices are oxfords or derbys, son.

I think it's hilarious that I'm getting monkey poo for this one. BUT the proof-is-in-the-pudding, no one else has stepped up with a suggestion. Boots simply don't belong in the office; this is finance, not a fucking rodeo.

I work in private equity where jeans are common. Not all finance is IB. Believe it or not, there is such thing as "boots for the office".

Allen Edmonds has multiple boots that are great for the office. The Dalton in particular, especially in walnut. When you're standing up, it looks like a traditional dress shoe. When you sit down, you reveal your badass-ness.

I agree with the above. I have the Dalton in Dark Cherry and it's a great boot.

Grab a pair of Lucheese. I rock mine every casual Friday and on days that I know are gonna be lowkey. Granted I work at a pretty bro REPE shop and am also a known fuckboy. Wouldn't recommend for IB.

I hope you mean "on casual Friday" if those are your plan.

Must they have laces? Chelsea boots are a much better option as they look dressy enough with a suit and good with slim jeans.

I think boots like these are fine even on regular days. (Sorry, don't know how to insert pictures)

If anything, Saint Laurent Black Leather Jodhpur's. I have those for "dress" and the tan suede for anything else. They're f'g awesome

Hardcore agree on the Jodhpur boot. I wear them a ton in the office and get a lot of compliments. Granted, I work on the buyside in Texas so others' mileage may vary.

Why don't you just go full retard and wear Wellingtons to the office?

And where are they letting you out early enough to worry how your shoes may look at the bar?

In any case, if you can afford it, check these out:

NOTE: Most of these are not acceptable at the office, but you might be able to pull of some of the more demure styles. Definitely go to the NY store before buying, though, as the sizes are different that you'd imagine.

These look absolutely horrible.

Redwing boots, highly recommend. They have sales in the summer which is hard to pass, especially since the weather conditions in New York in the winter are dismal.
