TAKE NOTE: "DERBYS" ARE OFTEN MISTAKEN FOR "OXFORD" AND VICE VERSA. WHILE OXFORDS ALWAYS FEATURE CLOSED LACING, DERBYS ALWAYS FEATURE OPEN LACING.
The Derby : The Derby is characterized by open lacing. The leather where the lacing ends closest to your toes is raised, causing each side to appear split apart from each other. This 'open throat' makes it more suitable for casual attire.
The Oxford : The Oxford has a "V" shape with closed lacing integrated into the main body or 'vamp' of the shoe suitable for a more formal look. This lends itself to a sleeker, more elegant shape that takes your style up a notch and is the perfect finishing touch to a sharp tailored suit.
Cap Toe : This design is characterized by a single line of stitching across the toes and no other pattern or stitching at the front of the shoe – a simple and sleek look, it is a shoe that has a cap at the toe that looks like the letter D.
Cap toes are essentially a timeless style, it can be found on many types of shoes.
Plain Toe : Plain toe shoes are exactly what the name infers – they're shoes without any form of design on the front.
Plain Toe Medallion : It is similar to plain toe but is marked with decorative perforation broguing (pattern of punch-holes along the seams) in the center of the toe cap.
Quarter Brogue Cap Toe: Contains a cap toe with decorative perforation and serrations along the cap's edge.
Full brogue : The full brogue has a distinctive "W" shape when looking from the top with a toecap extending along both sides of the shoe to the sturdy heel cap, which is why it is sometimes referred to as "Wing Tip". The full brogue design goes just as well with a suit as with a casual outfit.
Semi brogue : With its more subtle decorative perforations and a more refined shape, the semi brogue style is somewhat more formal and better suited to smarter outfits than full brogue. You can tell the difference as it has a toe cap rather than wingtip perforated in a design.
Longwing brogue : Longwing brogues are Derby style shoes characterized by a pointed toecap with wings that extend the full length of the shoes, meeting at the seam at the centre back of the heel.
Goodyear welted construction technology is known worldwide for its premium quality. Goodyear welt makes your shoe stronger, long-lasting (more than 10 years or longer depending on usage), and easier to replace the soles.
Goodyear Welted shoe is one of the oldest and the longest lasting shoe construction technology which ensures premium construction of the shoe. This kind of shoe construction requires skilled labour and involves more the 200 steps from Designing to packing the shoe. Your shoes are handmade, especially for you. One pair of shoes takes the diligence of around 6 skilled artisans. The double stitching ensures the longevity of the shoe making it also easy to replace the soles. Goodyear welted shoes take a while to get handcraft, but remember, good things come to those who wait.
The Goodyear welt is a highly preferred technology for a number of reasons including:
The Goodyear welting process alone is worth the cost of admission.You get a shoe that fits you better, is more water resistant, allows the leather and in turn your feet to breathe better, lasts longer, provides more comfort, and most importantly, can be easily resoled once the sole wears down allowing the wearer to extend the life of the shoe, sometimes for over a decade or more.
A welt is a strip usually made of leather, stitched to the upper and insole of a shoe. The welt runs around the perimeter of the outsole and its primary function is to attach the upper to the sole.
Goodyear welting is a labor intensive technology that involves more than 200 steps to construct a single pair of handmade good year welt shoe. It requires the use of skilled labour and the extra layers that provide more structure come at the cost of flexibility.
The nature of this technology of shoe construction makes Goodyear welted shoes take longer to manufacture than the cheaper alternatives.
Both the inner and outer leather, as well as the soles are made from genuine leather, which is a natural product with high elasticity, flexibility and resistance to wear and tear. We ensure that all our products have the highest quality, durability and comfort. The leather we use comes from the finest Italian leather manufacturers.
Leather is the most elegant material for well made dress shoe and a single layer results in sleeker, neater feel, which suits the nature of a dress shoe, for example, as leather is essentially porous and slippery when wet, we use one of the finest quality leather varieties available, known as Argentinian leather, for the outer soles of the shoes.
