Dino, have you seen the Australian made RAF 1936 Pattern Flying Boots? They were Aussie made versions of the iconic British flying boot and were made by Bedggood in Melbourne, and unlike the British versions were also made in brown. Andrew from Noosa who is a member here (but sadly no longer really posts) has/had a pair of the brown ones, seriously handsome boots. Back in Melbourne I used to go past the old Bedggood building every day on the train.

I always liked the brown ones.
