I have a few weddings coming up at the end of this year (November) and thought it would be a good excuse to get some nice dress boots or shoes. Leaning towards boots at this stage.

I really dig the Helm boots which Taylor Welden has discussed many times, but even on sale including postage to Australia would be $340.

I don't mind paying that if these boots will last a good 5 years or so. I won't be mountain climbing or rough rambling with them. They will just be for times when my squeaky $150 Florsheim work shoes are not up to the style level I need; so sometimes at work, if we are doing something special, design conferences, weddings, formal birthdays etc...

Any suggestions? They would have to be able to be posted to Australia.

Not sure about the Australia thing.

But I always recommend these.

I have worn these for about 6 months now, reasonably priced and they fit well. I have the black version but they also come in brown.
