    I can't find anything good locally so I have to turn to the internet to get myself a pair of decent brown suede oxfords. The issue is, of course, that it's a gamble as to whether they will fit, so I'm looking for the cheapest possible option as they may not fit (I'm also going to be paying shipping to Europe and 40% on top of the price in taxes and customs, so it's murder).

    What is the cheapest possible option online for a standard pair of brown suede oxfords?

    Erik, that's a good seller, but I'm looking for something a bit different. I've seen so many different claims as to what the proper term for what I'm looking for is, so I'll just post a picture:

    I guess these are usually referred to as bucks, tho I was told bucks have red soles, like I said, I'm lost with this shoe terminology. And I don't care much what the color of the soles is.

    If someone knows a European source like the one Erik posted that would be great so I can save on shipping.

    The shoe pictured is a plain toe blucher. Bluchers (also known as derbys) have open lacings, whereas oxfords have closed lacings.

    Thanks!

    I managed to find what I'm looking for on Amazon for $53. I suppose I can't hope to find anything cheaper than that, except if it was in Europe in which case I'd save on shipping.

    Amazon has Italian, German, French and UK sites - the Italian, German and French don't help me since I don't speak the languages, and the UK ones are so pricey it actually is more economical to buy from the US!
