    Fighting Seal
    2-Eyelet Derby (Blucher), Circa 1980

    This Church’s genuine “Fighting Seal” Derby is one of the great English classic shoes of yesteryear. In the 1980’s and earlier, Church’s set the standard in England for exotic leather shoes, alligator, shark, elephant, antelope, bison, water buffalo, lizard and seal. Difficulties interpreting and negotiating the varying endangered species legislation of the many countries to which they exported made continuing the manufacture of most of these exotics impractical and most were discontinued by the mid-1980s. This example represents the beautiful Goodyear welted work the produced at the time, the old and great Church’s “Custom Grade“ shoe, the shoe that made Church’s reputation. It is fair to say that it is most likely among the last of it kind, certainly the last in this near new condition anywhere. In terms of rarity, in ten years, I have only seen three pairs in this material from Church’s and all were rather used.

    At once dressy and relaxed, this durable, comfortable and overarchingly elegant Derby is worthy of the most advanced collector. Made for the American market, this was a very expensive shoe in its day; today it would priceless. If this shoe is your size, do not hesitate to add it to your collection.
