N° 102 details

No. 102 is a patent leather take on a classic black women’s derby shoe—Goodyear-welted and handcrafted to boot. Its remarkable appearance stems from a layer of polyurethane coating, which creates a glassy patent leather effect. Men’s derby shoes pair well with tuxedos. Women’s derby shoes are made using a narrower shoe last (the elegant shoe last) than their masculine counterparts; like men’s derby shoes, though, they’re elegant classics.

Men’s black patent leather shoes are a traditional choice for weddings. This comfortable low-rise shoe was first used for women’s footwear at the close of the 19th century. The special derby cut is actually named for a bygone English lord. The Earl of Derby in question struggled day in and day out to put on the closed-lacing shoes that were common at his time. To help alleviate his master’s resulting frustration, the resident shoemaker swiftly designed a special shoe featuring additional side pieces. These pieces formed so-called »open lacing«, which not only made shoes easier to put on and take off, but also permitted the shoe wearer to widen the shoes as desired.

Classic elegance and shine – women’s black derby shoes made of patent leather

Black patent leather derby shoes have been traditional men’s low-rise shoes since the 19th century. No. 102 supports foot health with a comfortable footbed and cork filler, as well as a comfortable, feminine last form. A special polyurethane coating is applied to the grain side of this full-leather shoe to create a distinctive lacquer finish.

The result: a high-gloss, Goodyear-welted women’s lace-up shoe. The plain derby’s open four-eyelet lacing creates a slightly sportier look than does its closed-lacing counterpart, but this doesn’t take away in the slightest from No. 102’s classic elegance. A Rendenbach sole (treasured around the world) and Rendenbach leather heel round out this full-leather shoe’s special qualities, simultaneously guaranteeing water-resistance and outstanding durability.

These black women’s derby shoes tend to look good with casual outfits; they pair well with jeans, skirts or lightweight trousers. While they aren’t appropriate for overly formal events, they do create a sleek and stylish look that’s perfect for elegant business attire.

Patent Derby

Patent Derby

The derby is a beloved, traditional lace-up shoe. This iteration, while smooth and unadorned, differs greatly from a classic derby, due to its gleaming lacquer finish. A special polyurethane layer covers the leather to create said finish.

Elegant Last

Elegant Last

Gently rounded towards the toe, with a toe box that rises slightly from the ground. This last lies close to the foot at the instep, and is of an average width at the middle. Significantly narrower than the classic last, the elegant last is recommended for average and low insteps.

French Calf

French Calf

This shoe’s upper boasts premium, medium-soft calfskin. The technical term for this type of leather is ‘French calf.’ This type of leather is known for its flexibility, fine texture, and soft grain.

Rendenbach Sole

Rendenbach Sole

For the past 140 years, Rendenbach has used oak bark tanning to produce leather soles—the process can take up to nine months. These soles are renowned for their extreme durability and natural water repellency. Women’s shoes with Rendenbach soles are a real novelty.

General information about our women's shoe collection

Goodyear-Welted

Goodyear-Welted

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.

Handcrafted

Handcrafted

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.

Construction

Construction

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.

Breathable

Breathable

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.

Delivery Content

Of course, our focus is on your new pair of shoes. But to underline our passion for our products, we enclose a few extras in your shipment. We hope that sparks your excitement about your new footwear.

Spare Shoe Laces

Spare Shoe Laces

Should you find yourself in need of new shoelaces, look no further: this pair of Goodyear-welted shoes comes with a spare pair of shoelaces. Made of 100% cotton and treated with wax, these shoelaces are of the very best quality.

Shoe Bag

These shoes come stored inside two shoe bags, packed into a shoebox. Shoe bags are a great way to maintain their condition—they protect your footwear from soiling and scratching. They also let you transport your shoes in style.

Shoe Care Guide

Shoe Care Guide

Goodyear-welted shoes last far longer than mass-produced models. A dedicated cleaning and care routine is an indispensable part of keeping your shoes in mint condition. An introductory guide to shoe care is included with your order.

SHOEPASSION - ONE STEP FURTHER

Made in EU

While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.

Environmentally sustainable

For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.

Pricing

Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.

Transparency

From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.

Our team

SHOEPASSION.com was founded by a pair of shoe lovers, and each and every employee focuses on satisfying our shoe-loving customers. Whether it’s graphic design, sales, marketing, editorial, or customer service, we handle all aspects of our business internally, ensuring our total control over all processes. We’re also owner-managed.

Your feedback

Your opinion is important to us; that’s how we define our business. If you’d like to express your satisfaction with our products and services, let us know. You can read reviews from other customers as well as experts in the shoe industry on the SHOEPASSION.com site. Your satisfaction is our top priority!

The values we live by

Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.
