I saw the Derby version of these in London a while back and they are really good.For brogues fans this seems to be a good deal:

They are listed as 'new without box'. I'd gladly have them as they are in my size (UK 10.5), but my piggy bank suffered a severe slimming diet recently.
(I have no interest in the ad or with the seller: just posting here as I think it's relevant with the thread)
That’s great colour on those.Favourite shoes are Oxfords full and half brogues, leather sole or rubber. Churches and Cheaney used to be a favourite, until Cheaney failed to match a pair of Hyth II shoes we ordered. Three pairs later and no improvement, they had over buffed the leather one shoe that left it a different texture so were not acceptable.
To Cheany's credit our favourite shoe of theirs is the Arthur II in Dark Leaf, calf leather, we usually go for leather soles but needed rubber on this occasion. Here is a pair that have just been cleaned and left to dry, they look fabulous on and are very comfortable to wear.
I tend to regard Oxfords as more formal but I think that your are correct,we should wear what we think looks best.Oh! They are not for wearing, just looking at! xD With anything, formal or casual, chinos, jeans (if worn) blues, greens, browns, greys etc.
Hi there, yes they are considered more formal though even more reason to wear them casual, do dislike Derbys thoughI tend to regard Oxfords as more formal but I think that your are correct,we should wear what we think looks best.
Some people say the Derbys shouldnt be worn dressed up but I cant see why not,for me a Derby Brogue is pretty versatile.
Same as colours, the days of 'no brown in town' are long past imo.
There are some Florsheim Imperial long wings on eBay at the moment, size 10.5. Not mint, despite the description, but they look okay. No idea if 100 quid is reasonable but I remember Suggs saying they were his favourite thing to wear. I think they are too narrow for me though.
