The Derby

Originating nearly two centuries ago, the Derby is considered to be one of the most versatile shoe styles with it being suitable for both smart and smart casual wear. Making the Derby a wardrobe staple.  

 Like The Oxford, The Derby’s defining characteristic is the lacing system. The difference being that The Derby features an open lacing system, allowing for more room and comfort for those with a wider foot. 


The features of a Derby Shoe are:
