I'm searching for the opposite of what swede was after. Lace up boots with a slimish profile.
Those bottega's were the only model which caught my eye. Can anyone comment on quality or knows a good alternative?

Clarks Mali boots would be a similar but much cheaper alternative.

Have you looked at Astorflex for both the chelsea and lace up boots? https://www.endclothing.com/gb/brands/astorflex

Astorflex boots are great, especially given how cheap they are. Surprised they don't get more love on here.

How do the Astorflex fit compared with Clarks? Is it a size down job?

I like the price & that they are made in Italy (Clarks do some at £150) but Astorflex are quite a bit broader and chunkier than the Clarks db in person. Not as nice shape IMO.

I've actually got the Clarks MII ones up right now. Was initially considering those until I saw the Astorflex ones being mentioned on here.

Clarks made in Italy desert boots are so much nicer than the made in Vietnam usual ones. Definitely worth the extra £

The full leather runner board makes a big difference

The style is known as a 'playboy' shoe I believe.

Sanders, 'Playboy' http://www.playboy-footwear.com/collection.php?type=men and others make them.
