I have now got these in every color in my size. That's 10UK to fit my usual 10.5 boot size (with medium thick wool socks). These boots are amazing. They can be dressed up or worn more casually, and yes, they are good for walking in the field with proper care -(I use oebernaufs, and haven't yet needed a colored polish). I own the famous Trickers Stow, and prefer these for day to day, work (office), and around town in poor weather. The Stows serve as hiking boots when I plan to go somewhere nice with the wife afterwards, but these boots from Sierra are sleeker and are better for wearing with business casual clothes, and go just fine with dress pants. The leather is thinner on these than on my Stows, but have no fear, these are tough boots, and they look just as great with miles of travel as straight out of the box. Unless you wear some sort of ultrasleek dress shoe, like a high end italian, or work in an environment where people know the difference between a balmoral and a blucher (why did you go to law school?) then these can easily be worn when you would normally wear an American-made or British-made dress shoes (or especially if you don't even know where your dress shoes were made). It should be noted that, as in the pictures, the beechnut color is a leather sole, while the rest have the Dainite rubber sole. And the fit- fantastic.
