Whatever your style, having a pair of dress shoes in your wardrobe is a must. To be worn with suit trousers and even jeans, Oxfords and derbies are synonymous with elegance and refinement. At DRAKE STORE, we offer designer shoes in different styles and colours that will appeal to men who like to take care of their look.
The classic elegance of Oxfords
The timeless Oxford shoe has a very elegant cap toe. It is most often found in black or brown. Often made of calf leather, the suede Oxford is a little less formal and is ideal for more casual outfits. The main difference between Oxfords and derbies is the lacing. Oxfords are close laced, with the eyelets closer together. This makes the lacing tighter. Be careful, only choose this type of shoe if you have narrow feet.
The versatility of the derby shoe
The derby shoe has a less formal style than the Oxford. You can wear it with a chino, jeans or a collared shirt. They can even replace your sneakers at dinner parties. Derbies are open laced, with the eyelets placed on flaps sewn onto the shoe. If you have wide feet or feet that tend to swell, this model will provide you with more comfort. The designer derbies sold by DRAKE STORE are particularly original. These include the shiny black leather Dolce & Gabbana Bernini with a thick notched sole that stands out from traditional derbies. Givenchy also offers a very daring derby model: the 4G derby. This black shoe stands out for its stunning style. The leather is completely covered with embossed letter Gs. The silver emblem of the famous brand is also attached to the heel. Finally, for a more reserved style, try the Eleventy lace-up shoes. These pretty beige suede shoes will match perfectly with your new linen suit. The wooden heel and aged effect sole will add a casual, natural touch to your outfit. Most of our men's shoes are available in sizes 40 to 44. All these models can be paid for in instalments over up to ten months.
