It's the classic Derby for a best man or wedding guest. It has a wide sole shape and a rounded toe, which is perfect for those with a high instep and wide feet. With its polished binder leather and its three-story leather sole, it’s the black shoe for those looking for a traditional British style, or just love to be different. And the blake-rapid construction makes it very easy to resole.
The most valuable construction is called blake-rapid. It’s characterized by a double binding (blake and rapid, precisely): while the first attaches upper, lining and insole; the second one secures the insole and outside sole together. The shoes are therefore easy to resole.
Unrefined leather goes through the traditional process called “tanning”. And is treated so to prevent it from decomposition or loss in flexibility. Afterwards, the leather is put in a rotating wood barrel with water and black coloring solution for dyeing. Water is then warmed up to 60°C to help the color bind to the leather for a lasting finish.
The smooth full-grain calfskin leather, the most external and precious part, is slightly abraded, smoothing the surface; it is then brushed to obtain shine.
Made with real leather, our soles respect and pay homage to tradition. They’re made from the best bovine leather in the market and gain their distinct color through “vegetal tanning”. And, they’re made to last over time.
