On the hunt for captoe oxfords

Looking for a pair of black captoe oxfords. It seems I can't find what I'm looking for in stores like Neimans and Nordstroms and don't know where else to look. I want them in black, with closed lacing and leather soles. It seems that most captoe oxfords have rubber soles.

I really wanted a pair of Ferragamo's, but I can't find the style shoe that they make that fits my description in my size, a US 13. Nordstroms had a similar pair, without the leather sole...but the shoe felt cheap to me. Maybe I'm used to Allen Edmunds, but I was expecting the leather to feel a bit thicker and not like plastic. I saw the 'Newcastle' Cap Toe Oxford by Ferragamo online, but they're out of my size.

I really like the Belgrave shoes from Crocket & Jones, but I'm not in NYC and don't know how they run width-wise.

Any suggestions?

You could try Skoaktiebolaget... They have pretty good advice on sizing if you know your size in AE and they have several black captoes from Carmina.

I ended up taking a stroll over to my local AE and picked up a pair of Park Avenues.
