I am in search of a nice pair of blue suede Oxfords in 10 or 10.5 extra wide (EEE), depending on the shoe. A wide may do the trick, again, depending on the shoe. I prefer a plain toe with no brogueing as I think going with blue suede is decorative and flashy enough in itself (for my style, anyway). However, if you know of a nice pair of brogued wingtips or cap toes, I might make the plunge as the shoes are meant merely as a change of pace, just-for-fun pair. Why not take the leap? I prefer something in the $250-350 range and can go up to $500, maybe a little more if the shoes are just so fabulous I cannot say no. I'm wary of low cost shoes because I find suede really reveals an inferior cut or stitching. But if you're familiar with a handsome $100 pair, by all means share; with modern manufacturing technology, they sometimes surprise. The key here is the wide size. The selection in wide sizes is narrow, extra wide even more so, with blue suede oxfords seemingly nonexistent. I am searching high and low, far and wide; if you can help me focus with a recommendation or two, I will be extremely appreciative. Thank you.
