I'm looking to purchase a pair of shoes to wear at work. I'm trying to find something that is slimline and wouldn't look out of place on a 23 year old. I like the look of the black leather derby from Dior Homme but they are a bit too expensive for what I imagine is primarily branding hence I'm not too keen on buying them.

Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated. I need to stick primarily to online sources as I stay in a small town and don't have much access to much else, and preferably a UK source.

Not had much look find a UK size 11/EU45 shoes anywhere

Thanks

www.pediwear.com re a reliable UK online company.

Rough budget?

What are the shoes for? Casual/work/nightclub?

Hello and welcome, there are so many shoes posted here, that it is impossible not to find a pair. So use the 'search' on the forum here and use the pinned threads. Here is a source located in the UK, too: http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/ They have seconds and sales, too. Yours GN

I'm willing to go to around £300 if necessary, but it depends on the shoe really. Cheers for the links though, I saw some Churches the other day and I could pop into Chruches shop in Edinburgh if necessary.

The shoes are for work but its casual dress, I usually wear a polo shirt and a pair of trousers. As I said, something slick like the Dior ones I mentioned, or even something like the Pierre Corthay Ooedipe Model 4(which is sublime, and if anyone knows the cost I'd appreciate it). Essentially something modern, not too clunky...

something from Crockett & Jones on the 348 last might suffice.
