Seriously can't find dark brown cap-toe semi-brogue derbys?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I've searched everywhere for a quality pair of dark brown cap-toe semi-brogue derbys. The best option I've found, though I'm not particularly enthused by them for a couple of reasons, is the Slaton from Ralph Lauren made by Allen Edmonds. I'm looking for a round-toe last (rounder rather than pointier), traditional styling, leather sole (not Dainite etc.). I've looked through what's available from Crockett & Jones, Bodileys, Alfred Sargent, Cheaney, Church's, Loake, Edward Green, John Lobb, Alden and Allen Edmonds as well as numerous online retailers such as Leffot, Leather Soul and Epaulet. The ideal option would be Edward Green's Wells, but they're about £200 out of my price range.

I've considered those brands, but they're difficult to find online. Meermin has a decent cap-toe, but I've no idea where to purchase them. Epaulet has some Carmina, but not what I'm looking for.

I love the Draycott, but I'm really looking for dark brown I'm afraid.
