Womens Shoes: Derbys

Derby shoes are characterised by the back quarters with shoelace eyelets that are sewn on top of the vamp hence the term lace up derbys. This upper construction method also knows as open lacing contrasts with that of the Oxford, where the back-quarter sits underneath the vamp. Derby shoe styles work best with high arch foot shapes as the lacing allows greater expansion contraction of the shoe fit.
