Hello Everybody, This is my first post on this awesome forum! I'm looking for a Fred Astaire style dark brown suede oxford, either brogue, semi-brogue or with a plain toe cap. My budget is maximum $500 AU, hopefully $400 AU. These Church's seem like the best option: http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/produ...4&catid=38&oldcolid=347&stype=0&colourid=2080 However, I'm a bit concerned that the English soles may be a bit hard and that the sole and heel will be a bit too raised for me. I'm more used to Italian style loafers like Fratelli Rossetti. Looking at this picture of Fred, it seems his soles are much thinner than a typical Goodyear welted construction, http://easyandelegantlife.com/2009/10/dressing-the-ankle/ Does anybody have some recommendations for a more sleekly soled dark brown suede oxford within my price range? I am about a 7 UK fitting, at little wide but not particularly. Also, does anybody know where I can find yellowy/gold laces? Thanks for your help!!!
