Mens Derby Shoes 

Mens Derby Shoes tend to be the type of shoe that fits better on awkward feet. The 'flaps' allow for more adjustment over a high or wide arch, and the tongue usually allows for more room over the top of the foot. Derby's are often associated with country shoes and heavy welts but we have plenty "city" styles too.

The Derby shoe (always pronounced “dahbi”, never “derrbee”) is a descendant of a popular sporting and hunting boot from the 1850s. Legend holds that the shoe was first worn by the 12th Earl of Derby at Epsom Downs when he inaugurated the Derby Stakes, then the world’s richest horse race, and so became popular amongst racing gentry. Today, the Derby is famed for its easy fit and smart-casual look.

The shoe itself, also known as a Bucks or Gibson or Blucher, is a lace-up dress shoe, distinctive in that the leather tabs that hold the shoelace eyelets are not sewn – or “closed” - the body of the shoe. This construction method, also known as "open lacing", contrasts with that of its great rival in the footwear stakes, the Oxford. Let Shipton & Heneage introduce you to an entire family of Derby variants, the nobility of British smart-but-casual footwear.
