N° 540 details

Take comfort in one of the finest Goodyear-welted shoes for gentlemen: the cap-toe Derby shoe in black. These shoes first appeared in England in the middle of the 19th century, but generally in their plainer guise. Over the years, the cap-toe Derby in black became a popular men’s shoe, too. A cap-toe Derby is a work of art in leather and an expression of the fashion-conscious gentleman’s good taste.

Take advantage of our optional additional features. After you have selected classic shoes in the proper width, you can opt to have them fitted with a high-quality Rendenbach leather sole, or with winter-proof features.

Traditional men’s shoe – the Cap-Toe Derby

Nearly 200 skilled operations are used to craft each of our high quality men’s shoes. The calfskin cap-toe Derby is hand polished and Goodyear-welted. Its sole and footbed is carefully structured from soft leather to ensure comfort and aid airflow. Each painstaking process combines to produce a sleek five-eyelet shoe with a seamed toe-cap, constructed for maximal comfort and a distinctive feel. With good shock absorption and flexibility, the cap-toe Derby is the stylish way to promote good foot health.

Modern style and elegant tradition

The simple elegance of the black cap-toe Derby makes it the ideal choice for a variety of outfits. It is perfect for the business environment and casual events too. Whether you wear jeans or a suit, the sleek look of this men’s shoe is always the right answer.

Classic shoes in different varieties

Our classic Goodyear-welted men’s shoes are made with quality outsoles. We also offer a special alternative—you can choose to have your new shoes fitted with world-renowned Rendenbach leather soles, which are incredibly scuff- and water-resistant.

Men with wide forefeet and/or elevated insteps can also enjoy this elegant, classic shoe—it is now available in two wider options. The first of these, “wide,” features a greater overall width, providing wider feet with plenty of room for comfort.

Gentlemen with very wide forefeet should reach for the “extra-wide” option, which boasts an even wider fit. Made using an extremely wide last form, this option provides the perfect overall width for very wide feet. Make sure to select the correct width when purchasing your shoes.

For the cold, wet season, we recommend our classic shoes with winter-ready details. They are lined with soft and cuddly lambskin, which keeps feet comfortably warm, as well as a non-slip rubber lug sole, which guarantees secure traction on slippery surfaces. You can choose between a classic variety and a winter-ready model.

Captoe Derby

Captoe Derby

A separate toecap (cap-toe), shaped like a D, is more typical for an Oxford shoe. Now this shoe style meets the black Derby, another formal men’s shoe with an open five-hole lacing. The extra detail lends this versatile all-rounder a more dynamic character.

Classic Last

Classic Last

The standard British last form. Subtly and elegantly narrows at the front of the shoe, without sharply rising from the ground. The average width at the ball of the foot provides a great fit for average feet.

French Calf

French Calf

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

General information about our formal shoe collection



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.



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.



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.



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.



Our passion for our products is reflected in their packaging. All of our shoes come in an elegant black shoebox emblazoned with the 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.



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

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.


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.


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.

Our team was founded by a pair of shoe lovers, and each and every employee focuses on satisfying our shoe-loving customers. Whether it’s graphic design, sales, marketing, editorial, or customer service, we handle all aspects of our business internally, ensuring our total control over all processes. We’re also owner-managed.

Your feedback

Your opinion is important to us; that’s how we define our business. If you’d like to express your satisfaction with our products and services, let us know. You can read reviews from other customers as well as experts in the shoe industry on the site. Your satisfaction is our top priority!

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.
