I want a pair of boots like this please -

They are clearly ace but I can't find any like them from anywhere. So that's your task, to help me discover them.

Black, simple, cap toe and contrast stitching.

I've had a look.

I used the search terms: rapist boots, polio boots, horrific boots... but still nothing.

Thanks for your efforts IlDo! Keep trying. It's my desire to resemble a horrific polio rapist from the ankles down.

e: what's the style called where a shoe or boot has a stitched toe cap? Is that on Oxford?

That's pretty close! Well done spast1k, a good start. I'd still prefer contrast stitching though. Can we find that?

Isn't that an army boot? Tried army surplus, DT?

I found out the difference recently.

Which (I think) makes your OP a pair of quarter brogue derby boots.

Well they're certainly Derby not Oxford then. Derby gets called Blucher in America I think. I don't now know if there's a special name for having the capped toe though.

Toe cap

Eta Derby toe cap boot gives loads of search results

You can have 'cap toe oxfords' as distinct from just plain old 'oxfords'/any other shoe so I think the cap toe isn't a style on it's own as much as its a variant of other styles.

We used to wear boots like that when I was at school (not DM's ones, just cheapy one probably). We called them monkey boots.

The ones you've linked look too spectacularly awful even for me though, unfortunately.

e: oh, I see they call them monkey boots as well.

No derby/Blucher cap but contrasting stitching which must mean I am winning this game

These are the best boots posted here by far, IMO. Contrast stitching isn't. my. bag, bay-bee (what's that from again??) so I think you should get these instead.
