Top 5 Crockett & Jones... Derby's

A Derby, Gibson, or even Blutcher, if you are on the other side of the pond, is a shoe easily recognised by the construction of its facing tabs. You will notice they are stitched on top of the vamp (Unlike an Oxford, where they are stitched underneath the vamp)...

Top 5 Crockett & Jones... Derby's

A Derby is a popular shoe, if not for its country origins, but for its fitting qualities. It is a style that offers greater margins of adjustment to ensure the right fit is achieved, from the very first time you try them on. A Derby is often the choice shoe for the bearer of a wider foot.

More traditional Derby’s are of the full brogue variety with a wing tip design coupled with heavy brogue detailing to suit. However, Derby’s of today can be found across all categories: Rubber soles, Leather soles, three eyelet, five eyelet, dress shoe, unlined… The list is almost endless, and there is usually a place on the shelf for all of them. Here are the five favourites from Crockett & Jones:

Pembroke is made from the finest scotch grain or smooth calf leather with Dainite rubber soles and a storm welt for added water resistance. It has been a pillar of the Men's Main Collection for over 30 years with repeat orders making it impossible to discontinue.
