Online Card Sort PLUS architecture

Hi all! It's been a while since I've been active here. I'm jumping into the pool of online research tools. I'm looking for a tool that will allow card sort capability but also capture architecture suggestions. so, not just sorting shoes into flats and heels but also understanding the cognitive map of the larger site and how one might think about getting from a list of shoes to a list of purses and accessories, etc. 

Has anyone seen a tool like that? I've looked at websort.net and a few others, but they just allow categorization not architecture.
