Product Details

Built with premium materials plus hard-wearing details, our new dress shoes are the perfect foundation for Ludlow suits, chinos or denim. We start with thick Italian leather insoles, a cork-bed filler that molds to your foot for a custom fit, and a Goodyear welt, so you can resole them again and again. We use Italian leather that is vegetable tanned, a process with thousands of years of history that gives the leather depth, and a natural look and feel, which improves with age. Emerging from England in the 19th century, the derby is almost indistinguishable from the blucher (there's a slight variance in the piece of leather where you can find your derby's eyelets)—they both step away from the Oxford in their open lacing systems, allowing for greater flexibility.
