Details about 584
Our No. 584 is a cap-toe Derby in black. According to legend, the Derby was first created for the Earl of Derby and his sturdy build. Soon, it became a popular piece of footwear for British society at large. Here, it has been crafted with a sharply pointed shoe last and toecap, to exude a more modern and elegant appearance.
Versatile men’s shoe with a modern toecap
The open five-hole lacing, with side parts stitched to the vamp, is typical for this men’s shoe. The open lacing not only facilities stepping into the shoes, but also relieves the instep because the tension created by the lacing originates closer to the sole. The stitched-on toecap of our No. 584, with the signature cap-toe seam, shaped like the letter “D”, underlines the sharply pointed shoe’s front.
The vamp consists of fully dyed, finest French calf. The breathable leather insole, inner linings, outsole and heel – held in place with 15 metal pins – are also crafted from vegetable-tanned calfskin. All together they turn our cap-toe Derby in black into a high-quality full-leather shoe. Further the Goodyear-welted construction guarantees durability, a perfect fit and easy repair.
Today the versatile cap-toe Derby is a favourite item of footwear for all men with normal or higher insteps, offering great comfort. This classic men’s shoe is appropriate for the office, a meeting and of course for your leisure time, too. For casual occasions our No. 584 looks rather dashing with jeans.
A separate toecap (cap-toe), shaped like a D, is more typical for an Oxford shoe. Now this shoe style meets the Derby in black, a formal men’s shoe with an open five-hole lacing. The extra detail lends this versatile all-rounder a more dynamic character.
Italian Square-Toe Last
First developed in the 1930s by Italian shoemakers, this square-toe last was designed as a response to England’s classic last. Marked by a boxy toe, this type of last is particularly popular in Germany. It is perfectly suited for average feet.
This shoe’s upper boasts premium, medium-soft and fully-dyed calfskin. The technical term for this kind of leather is "French calf". This type of leather is known for its flexibility, fine texture, and soft grain.
