It is called awareness: that which can cause fear because it is absent. Are they just a “pair of shoes”? It depends.
DERBY wants to build a sharp image, one that is dynamic, one that is a style in the making.
After all, memory is the only way to something that cannot return by itself.
The construction of the shoe is high profile, the best artisan quality.
The processing is called Blake. Its peculiarity is characterized by a seam that combines the insole, the upper, the lining and the midsole. This process makes the shoe very durable over the years.
Our cowhide sole is of an exceptional quality. The vegetable tanning process makes the sole highly durable. The treatment of vegetable products facilitates their conservation and emphasizes their style and classicism.
The fine leather that we have chosen with our Master Craftsmen is the exceptional full-grain leather. The quality is very high and truly unique; soft and natural. Its perspiration makes the leather very resistant to moisture.
The term full grain is attributed exclusively to the outer layer of the skin of the calf, which in practice is covered with fur. Once the hair is removed, the skin is tanned, but only after having passed a scrupulous check to measure its thickness.
In our shoes, the pores of the leather are clearly visible; providing you the best quality in the market.
We process the dying of our leathers in drums.
The skins are immersed in a considerable quantity of water containing the solutions of the natural dye chosen for the leather dyeing. These drums are kept at an optimal temperature to allow the colors agents to penetrate deeply (usually around 50-60 °C), which in addition to the rotary movement of the drum, guarantee a successful dyeing process.
