Originating from the sporting fields of 19th-century England, Derby Shoes were initially designed for comfort during long walks and outdoor activities. What sets them apart is the 'open lacing' system, distinguishing them from their close-laced counterpart, the Oxford. This design not only offers a versatile and relaxed fit but also contributed to their casual elegance. At Joseph Emporium, we celebrate the timeless charm of Derby Shoes by blending heritage craftsmanship with contemporary design, ensuring each step you take is a testament to both comfort and sophistication
