This is a fun conversation!

I am a casual rider, but will vouch for the fact that you NEED shin protection in an English type saddle. Nobody would think you were a poser for showing up in correct, sport specific footwear. I've ridden for many years in Ariat Terrains with half chaps, but I got boot envy this year. I wanted a pair of tall boots that I could "muck around" in. And I found them! Ovation Moorland Highriders. They are leather, come in brown and black, men's sizes, and are WATERPROOF. They're zippered and gusseted all the way down the leg. I can't say with absolute certainty, but I think they'd be okay for low level showing. AND, at just under $200, I think they're actually less expensive than a pair of Ariat Terrains and good half chaps.
