Amazon has the classic Timberland euro hiker boot for 71$. Normal/wide sizes available.

10$ lower than average on camel. Excellent, real leather, boots for hiking/winter etc.

Have these and feel like they are the best boots for the money. Also waterproof.

Timberland quality is Chinese made junk. Years ago, they were of a much higher quality. Go pull the insole and you will see a cardboard/paper base that will deteriorate when wet. Buy them for fashion, but not for real hiking/backpacking boots. The photos show a very narrow heel which means a greater chance of a ankle twist.

Are you sure you have experience with these boots? They are actually made in Bangladesh.
Being made in a specific country, including China, does not represent the quality of the product. It's the companies that pay the manufacturers that tell them what quality to use. So it's incorrect to say 'X Country made, its junk!'. It's correct to say 'X brand, Junk!'

What boot under 200$ t isn't made in some part of Asia?

Keen , merrell... Asia made.

Plus Timberlands have been made there for a while. I have a pair from the 90s. They are the same quality.

You won't find a better leather made boot in the same price range.

Keen has some models made in USA, and others in Viet Nam and China, and all are well known for high quality. You are correct, not all Chinese made boots (or goods) are junk. I had a pair of Timberland hikers from early 2000 and they were advertised as waterproof. Nope. After they got wet, I pulled the soles and discovered the cheap quality base they used and still use today.

My favorites and not made in China: Alico Tahoe and Summits (sierra trading post is importer) and made in Italy and priced less than $200. outstanding quality, Asolo FN95 (other models too) are made in Romania and are excellent quality and under $200., some Danner's, and some Wolverines.
