Number 5221 details

As part of the Patina Line, No. 5221 is distinguished by the primarily vegetable-tanned soft calf leather which graces the entire upper part of the shaft. This material is known for its suppleness, and is produced using a special vegetable tanning process that opens the pores of the leather and thereby makes the colours of subsequently applied dyes really pop. A hand finish lends these shoes a fascinating antique look, acting as another visual highlight. The toes and the heel cap are noticeably darker and contrast with the other sections of the shaft.

A modern look for a classic shoe

Open five-eyelet lacing and straightforward shaft design mark this lace-up shoe as a classic Plain Derby for men. That being said, in addition to the unusual colouring, the narrow last, particularly in the forefoot, modernises this versatile lace-up model.

Made entirely of leather, No. 5221, like all of our classic men’s shoes, is manufactured in the Goodyear-welted style by master shoemakers in Spain. Thanks to this centuries-old production method, our fine full-grain leather shoes prove themselves to be particularly durable and easy to repair. A high leather content further ensures that the shoes are naturally flexible, and breathable, and creates a pleasant environment for the foot.

This classic shoe is the right choice for elegant events and is particularly well suited for men with a high instep. Over the years, the black Plain Derby has become a beloved choice for festive occasions and the office, as well as for leisure activities. Its new look, however, means No. 5221 is ideal for businesses with comparatively relaxed dress codes – but, of course, this lace-up shoe is also the perfect stylish highlight when paired with jeans and a T-shirt.

Italian Last

The Italian last is distinguished by a dynamically tapering front section, while the ball of the foot enjoys ample space. The last fits closely against the midfoot area and then flows into a pleasantly rounded heel. Suitable for narrow to average feet.

Soft Calf

Soft Calf

Our soft calf leather is a predominantly vegetable-tanned, fully dyed leather upper from Italy whose open porosity makes the colours of subsequently applied dyes really pop. An elaborate hand finish makes this soft calf leather even more exquisite. One-of-a-kind in our collection.


Hand Finish

The soft calf leather is dyed in the Italian tannery, but it is the intense leatherwork done by hand in the factory, called a hand finish, that creates the thrilling contrasts and shadows that give this soft calf leather its unique look.

General information about our formal shoe collection



The gold standard when it comes to shoe manufacturing. Goodyear welting is a painstaking process that involves stitching the shaft and outsole to a thin strip of leather. Shoes made this way are extremely stable, durable, breathable, and easy to repair.



Mass-produced shoes are glued together on assembly lines. All of our premium, full-leather shoes, on the other hand, are handcrafted to the finest standards of quality. You can see and feel the difference.

Full-Leather Shoes

Full-Leather Shoes

The high quality of these shoes is reflected in their high leather content. Their uppers, lining, insoles, and outsoles are made from the finest leather. They even have leather heels, made by painstakingly stacking thin layers of leather on top of one another.



These shoes consist of roughly 65 separate parts. They took about 210 steps to assemble. We rely upon premium materials and traditional production methods to ensure that our footwear is of the absolute highest quality.

Gentleman's Corner

Gentleman's Corner

These shoes come equipped with a so-called "gentleman's corner". This is a small notch cut from the inside corner of the heel. This has a practical purpose—it prevents your trouser leg from catching on your shoe.



This shoe boasts a high proportion of leather, and has been assembled without the use of adhesive bonding—both of these factors ensure proper air circulation and prevent moisture from penetrating the surface. Dry, well-ventilated feet are healthy feet.
