Looking for a pair of chelsea boots, in either style A or style B. Details within!

Budget: ~$125

Style A
-Platform/creeper-style sole with no (maybe very little) distinction between heel and forefoot
-Mid ankle length
-Leather/pleather
-Almond/round toe (but not bulbous like a lot of docs)

Style B
-low heel
-contrasting sole
-low profile on ankle
-longer in the front, shorter on the sides

What about the Clarks Blackford?

Clark's are good value for the money and the Blackford seems to fit some of your list.

oh- nonbinary here, and I'm okay with either men's or women's shoes, just don't want them to be too... clunky (again, like doc martens)

How do you feel about a bit of a heel? Do these in black suit Style A? They're a hair above your price range, though.

Platform sole (tho I don't know how you feel about the nubuck finish)

Oh, not the crepe soles! Go with Style B.

Just to clarify, I'm not looking for advice on whether to pick A or B, I like them equally. I am looking for links to specific shoes for sale that fit either criteria.

For style B: Sorel Emelie Chelsea. Slightly over your budget but you probably can wait for a sale / coupon code. Sorel has also had other similar styles in the past... They tend to be waterproof and very durable.

I have these docs which have a non-bulbous tapered toe and are nicely unisex as docs are. Also very comfy.
