The Derby Shoe, a brief description

A bit more casual than the oxford, the derby features an open lacing system, with the quarters sewn on top of the vamp. The derby is a classic style that never goes out of style. The derby is perfect for any casual look and can also be dressed up with a suit and tie.

Full Calf Lined Interior

These shoes are fully-lined with soft calfskin leather, which means ultimate comfort. Most companies will only partially line their shoes, but we go the extra mile because it means a more comfortable shoe and less break-in time.

Hand Painted Crust Leather

Crust calf is untreated –not dyed– leather. It's usually used in its plain form, but it can be embossed with textures like pebble grain, full grain or croco. This leather is hand painted by our maestro colorist using natural dyes and oils.

Being an artisanal process, it is difficult to achieve uniform shades, especially in the lighter ones, although its main attraction is precisely its natural finish and the light transparency in its colors, which gives great distinction and versatility.

The Zurich Shoe Last

This style is produced using our most famous shoe last, which features a round toe for a classic english look. The Zurhich last is a perfect choice for either a casual look or a more contemporary shape to wear with formal clothes. The classic fit and slight almond toe creates a beautiful last with a timeless and versatile shape.

Original Goodyear Welted

Original Goodyear Welted shoes have always been associated with excellence and superior workmanship. This construction process is expensive, time consuming and requires highly skilled craftsmanship.  For instance, more than 60 craftsmen are involved in the process of manufacturing one of our Goodyear shoes, requiring more than 120 production steps, from beginning to end.

Invented hundreds of years ago, Goodyear is still considered one of the finest method of shoe construction today. The construction get its strength, durability and repair qualities by stitching the upper leather, lining leather and welt (a specially prepared piece of leather) to the ribbing that has already been bonded to the insole.  The welt is then stitched to the leather or rubber sole. It is this final stitch, holding the sole in place, which we can cut through enabling complete removal of the sole without causing damaging the upper.

Meet the Goodyear Leather Sole

Our Goodyear welted outsole is part of traditional footwear construction that creates a durable shoe, which is easy to re-sole and built to last. A unique characteristic of the Goodyear welted construction is its cork midsole. Cork is naturally moisture-wicking and its elasticity causes the shoe to mold to the wearer's foot over time, creating a truly customized footbed for a higher degree of comfort.

Entirely cut by hand

The Clicking Department is the first stage of production. The highly skilled Clickers (whose name derives from the ‘click’ sound made when the knife is removed from the leather) use predetermined patterns to intricately cut the shoe’s uppers and linings. Each Clicker design and grind the blade of their knife to their own personal taste and working preference.

Customize. Design. Create.

You can design your own style using our 3D Designing Tool. There are literally BILLIONS of styles & design combinations, materials and finishings. Go ahead, have fun!
