Revving Up the Classic Derby
Fresh from the current Marc Jacobs spring/summer 2012 Collection, we see a new take on the classic oxford shoe. The Edmond Derby is a witty black leather lace-up with a metal heel-piece. Fashionisto’s take note; by applying a sturdy addition on the mid-sole, Marc Jacobs gives your typical drab pair of black shoes a metallic spin.
The Edmond Derby features durable, waxed leather that can either be dressed up or dressed down, depending on your mood. Why not take advantage of the golden heel and really show them off by pairing with tapered jeans or a couple of turn ups on your chinos?
This Derby features unconventional sewing work, with the inclusion of an asymmetrical seam that lines the rear section; a man can really grow to love these individualistic details. The killer sheen on these shoes will enhance your wardrobe and offer a subdued polish, which is so hard to find when shopping around for a classic leather Derby. By using supple, black leather, Marc Jacobs finishes the product with a buffed look that is so refined, it seems almost impossible to pass up.
Owning a pair of these will bring a new meaning to being amongst a well-heeled crowd. Do not sleep on this one.
