After some intensive shopping I've discovered a pair of black brogues to wear with dark blue jeans and darker shade pants in a more "business" casual context (posted earlier). Alas... just when I was going to buy them, out of stock! Arghhh!

I'm looking for a modern touch in the design, black colour, matte (not shiny) but nothing to flamboyant, the Paul Smith one's looked very nice:

Any plan B suggestions?

I'm more of a trad brogue man - but these might be an option for you:

All you just listed are a waste of money, not to mention very ugly.

Those are really, really ugly. Wear those and you'll be cringing at photographs of you in them in ten years (or less).
