Looking for boots similar to these but not too pricey 180 USD is the cut off. Thanks ahead.
reminder that combat boots are the only acceptable boots for men
a good pair of jungle boots will run you like $40 and will last a lifetime

Watch out when buying jungles though, most available today are shitty repros. Look for actual issued ones from the 70s. Unfortunately I think all the actual GI ones have green uppers, so no good for the typical black boot look, but tough as hell regardless. OP if you want leather boots like the ones pictured I recommend searching around thrift/surplus shops or etsy/ebay to find some vietnam era leather boots, you want the ones with a wave/ripple pattern on the soles issued between 1967 and 84. Any before or after that will be a pain in the ass as the earlier ones were made on the cheap to save budget and the later ones had a dumbass soles design.
Almost positive those are Julius combats, the super slim neck is what gives it away for me. Horikawa takes alot of inspiration from military silhouettes so the people who are saying just buy surplus boots are probably the most correct here.
>pic related is my personal Julius grail
They have a very similar shape to the boots in your pic
which part, the accusation of stolen valor, or dressing themselves as soldiers and "stealing valor".
youtube stolen valor. some people who call them out rightfully get mad, but some take it to the next level and you kinda feel bad for autistic plebs who actually try and dress like soldiers, sailors, marines etc.
