Details about Number 101

No. 101 is a plain, dark brown women’s derby—a classic shoe that falls somewhere between traditional and modern. Distinguishing features include the smooth, supple leather upper and open four-eyelet lacing. Sporty and elegant in appearance, this full-leather shoe is extremely sturdy, breathable and reparable. When properly cared for, this women’s lace-up shoe rewards its owner with years of wearing comfort.

Plain dark brown derby—rebirth of a classic


At the turn of the 20th century classic lace-up shoes started to spread from men’s to women’s fashion, showing up on more and more women’s feet across the late 1910s. Women’s lace-up shoes enjoyed their heyday between 1930 and 1940; in the following decades they were temporarily ousted by their high-heeled counterparts. Nowadays flat lace-up shoes such as the women’s derby are popular again, worn in the office and during leisure activities. They express style and self-confidence.

Open four-eyelet lacing adds to No. 101’s traditional look and lets the wearer adjust fit as desired. The shoe upper is made of the finest French calf, while the lining and insole are made of vegetable-tanned cowhide. No. 101 is also Goodyear-welted; this centuries-old production method entails stitching the shoe upper to the sole with a five to eight millimetre wide strip of leather. This woman’s derby shoe is made almost entirely of leather (it also features a vegetable-tanned Rendenbach outsole and heel); this, in combination with its Goodyear-welted construction ensures a perfect fit, high breathability and outstanding durability.

Sleek and understated, women’s lace-up shoes have become an everyday staple. They’re especially well-suited for the transitional season. Whether worn in the office, on a walk around town, or to an evening event, the plain women’s derby in dark brown is the perfect choice for those who favour a modern, comfortable look.

Plain Derby

Plain Derby

A beloved style that dates back to the 19th century. Sleek and unadorned, this comfortable plain derby is a true classic. This slip-on shoe with open four-eyelet lacing is perfect for nearly any occasion.

Elegant Last

Elegant Last

Gently rounded towards the toe, with a toe box that rises slightly from the ground. This last lies close to the foot at the instep, and is of an average width at the middle. Significantly narrower than the classic last, the elegant last is recommended for average and low insteps.

French Calf

French Calf

This shoe’s upper boasts premium, medium-soft and fully-dyed calfskin. The technical term for this kind of leather is "French calf". This type of leather is known for its flexibility, fine texture, and soft grain.

Finish

Antique Finish

The upper has been fully-dyed dark brown, while an intricate finish at the toe lends a final decorative touch. This special refinement at the tip of the shoe imbues the leather with a darkly gleaming shimmer.

Rendenbach Sole

Rendenbach Sole

For the past 140 years, Rendenbach has used oak bark tanning to produce leather soles—the process can take up to nine months. These soles are renowned for their extreme durability and natural water repellency. Women’s shoes with Rendenbach soles are a real novelty.

General information about our women's shoe collection

Goodyear-Welted

Goodyear-Welted

The gold standard when it comes to shoe manufacturing. Goodyear welting is a painstaking process that involves stitching the shaft and outsole to a thin strip of leather. Shoes made this way are extremely stable, durable, breathable, and easy to repair.

Handcrafted

Handcrafted

Mass-produced shoes are glued together on assembly lines. All of our premium, full-leather shoes, on the other hand, are handcrafted to the finest standards of quality. You can see and feel the difference.

Full-Leather Shoes

Full-Leather Shoes

The high quality of these shoes is reflected in their high leather content. Their uppers, lining, insoles, and outsoles are made from the finest leather. They even have leather heels, made by painstakingly stacking thin layers of leather on top of one another.

Construction

Construction

These shoes consist of roughly 65 separate parts. They took about 210 steps to assemble. We rely upon premium materials and traditional production methods to ensure that our footwear is of the absolute highest quality.

Gentleman's Corner

Gentleman's Corner

These shoes come equipped with a so-called "gentleman's corner". This is a small notch cut from the inside corner of the heel. This has a practical purpose—it prevents your trouser leg from catching on your shoe.

Breathable

Breathable

This shoe boasts a high proportion of leather, and has been assembled without the use of adhesive bonding—both of these factors ensure proper air circulation and prevent moisture from penetrating the surface. Dry, well-ventilated feet are healthy feet.

Delivery Content

Of course, our focus is on your new pair of shoes. But to underline our passion for our products, we enclose a few extras in your shipment. We hope that sparks your excitement about your new footwear.

Shoebox

Shoebox

Our passion for our products is reflected in their packaging. All of our shoes come in an elegant black shoebox emblazoned with the SHOEPASSION.com logo. Said shoebox is easy to open, thanks to a special opening on the side, and comes with a note on our philosophy.

Spare Shoe Laces

Spare Shoe Laces

Should you find yourself in need of new shoelaces, look no further: this pair of Goodyear-welted shoes comes with a spare pair of shoelaces. Made of 100% cotton and treated with wax, these shoelaces are of the very best quality.

Shoe Bag

Shoe Bag

These shoes come stored inside two shoe bags, packed into a shoebox. Shoe bags are a great way to maintain their condition—they protect your footwear from soiling and scratching. They also let you transport your shoes in style.

Shoe Care Guide

Shoe Care Guide

Goodyear-welted shoes last far longer than mass-produced models. A dedicated cleaning and care routine is an indispensable part of keeping your shoes in mint condition. An introductory guide to shoe care is included with your order.

The values we live by

Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.

Values
EU

Made in EU

While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.

Environmentally sustainable

Environmentally sustainable

For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.

Pricing

Pricing

Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.

Transparency

Transparency

From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.
