I you want boots for wearing in a smart/dress casual scenario, but also prefer plain toe, then I would recommend chukka boots. Many lace up boots without a cap toe can look out of place in anything dressier than jeans and t-shirt.

What is your taste in Chelseas?
I’m not a fan of those either, or jodhpurs. I find that the pants leg constantly gets caught around the top of the boot. This is not unique to the two aforementioned styles, but it seems to be occur more frequently with them.

Interesting you have that, having worn chelsea boots for long time, hardly have that (usually with pants too short, as in near or at the top of the boot). Though I don't wear trim cuts, regular or flared.

Paul, if you want minimalist, then forgo the laces. I think even have seen whole cut chelsea boots.
