Black toe capped oxfords - recommendations (similar to Loakes 1880 Churchill) - UK £200-£500 budget

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

My idea in my head is I definitely want a capped black leather shoe. Used for city wear 
 

I know oxfords are the most classic however I do not found the lace area of the shoe to be attractive at all. http://36.media.tumblr.com/f8b2b23ae74faf9eb332ce0d2c3a092a/tumblr_ndr8o6MNcO1sj1nruo1_1280.jpg
 

I already own a pair of loakes 1880 derbys

Which Ive beat to death and were an impulse buy as I was looking at loakes oxfords moreso.
 

I like the silhouette of the Loake churchills however do not want to go back to loake - the sole of my derbys has worn terribly however that is partly because i have beat them everyday wear

Shoe silhouette inspiration:

I like how they are capped and the lace area looks sleek/refined/modern. Also how the shoe is narrow around the middle section (goes in and then out as opposed to being more one shape throughout )getting wider as opposed to a traditional toe cap oxford being more one shape throughout (http://blog.loakepolska.pl/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Buty-Loake-model-Aldwych-2-e1439996683153.jpg)
 

Any recommendations for similar shoes to churchill loakes 1880? or in line with my description above.

Something similar to Loake outlaw is also of interest

You don't mention price, so the first thing that comes to mind is Vass F last, which has a rounded narrow toe and nice contrast in width.
