Gucci Contrast Sole Suede Derby Shoes
In our article on the Top 5 Men’s Shoes for Spring/Summer 2012, Buck shoes are rightly described as the perfect spring addition. Their simple silhouettes, casual appearance and suede construction allows the wearer to dress them up or down, providing that much sought after versatility. They are the perfect cross-over shoe – they can be worn with everything from jeans and coloured chinos to smart shorts and trousers.
These Gucci Derby shoes are an ideal archetype of these in vogue shoes. Their contrasting blue rubber soles will add an injection of both colour and flair to your outfit, particularly if worn with the coordinating jeans or chinos (think white or burgundy respectively).
The upper of the shoe is made from the finest Gucci suede. The great thing about these Derby shoes (and suede in general) is that they will only look better with age; a worn in look gives the footwear character and only serves to reinforce their classic and timeless nature.
Gucci’s SS12 catwalk saw the Buck shoe incorporated into nearly every other look. However, the high street has been quick to follow suit, with numerous brands releasing their own take on the classic ‘Buck’ within their new spring/summer collections – only reinforcing the fact that they are on their way to becoming this season’s footwear of choice.
