Today's Favorites - Plain Toe Derby's

A nice plain toe derby can go a long way: from jeans all the way to being worn with a suit depending on the cut and elegance of the particular model. It's simplicity can be a refreshing treat when one is used to always wearing brogues, heavily stitched or intricately designed shoes. While I tend to go for unique, colorful shoes, I forget that sometimes a simple and plain shoe can be the most elegant option of all!


  1. The green and concrete derbys by Bremer just increased my pulse.

    What sort of arcane treatment results in texture like that?

  2. Benjy - Elephant hide. Don't know how he managed to get it considering that I am pretty sure it is illegal to have but nonetheless, that's what it is! Cool huh!

  3. Excuse me, but God damn!

    Just when you thought alligator and stingray was tough.

    What's next, Panda?

  4. Is possible that the ones which have dark brown croco combined with brown calf were from J.A.Ramis produced by MEERMIN (sold in Isetan Shinjuku) and not from Corthay?

  5. Anonymous - It is more than likely. I always thought that it did not look like a Corthay but his name was associated with the picture when I found it. I will change it now. Thanks again!
