Dark Brown Derby
A dark brown derby which is a great formal shoe in a decadent dark colour. There is a little bit of detail to the toe which is long. There is an elegance about the style which stems from the elongated shape and the micro pattern as well as stitch detail. The look is formal and business like but there is a hint of original which is down to the styling and the colour. A dark brown derby is a great alternative colour to have in the business wardrobe of the style conscious male. The subtle quirks on this shoe make it wearable with jeans too. The derby is less formal than the oxford and so we think it could work as a semi smart look.
Cleaning Derby Shoes
You could take the laces off to give you a clean surface area. As ever, use a leather spray first and this will help with longevity. Now you can get a colour match from a shoe repairer or use a neutral polish. Once you have given the shoes a wipe down with a soft cloth, use a soft brush and use circular motions to polish your derby shoes. After this you can buff them with a shammy style cloth and get a lush gleam going. Top tip if they get wet is to stuff them with paper to absorb the moisture. Wipe off as much of it as you can. Grab some shoe trees and that should keep them looking good.
