    Remind me of the field of law in which Mr. Ford practices. :alien:

    My suggestion would be to select the most conservative last you can tolerate (both regarding fit and style) for the time being. You seem to leave open the possibility of getting a second black captoe later on. By that time you may have a better feel for what is considered appropriate for your particular workplace and type of practice.

    I think in most legal circles, at least in the US, better to err on the side of looking a bit dowdy than too much of a dandy, especially for a young person just starting out.

    Best of luck!

    Solid advice, thanks. After a couple more hours of searching I believe this Meermin is above all the one's I've posted.

    And good price for value as well. Don't work in law, but I remember when I first start in finance (S&T not IBD) it's still pretty much everything goes.

    I'd go with the black chiseled toe, personally. My favorite are from cleverley or g&g. The black cap toe is conservative, while the chiseled toe gives it an elegance.

    I think chisel is absolutely a very current and british look. It's currently one of my favourite looks in a new shoe. Just look at shoes like Alfred sargents Moore, and Crocketts 373 lasts. A slight chisel is excellent. And it's my favourite of the three above.
