*Vintage American MANSFIELD SHELL CORDOVAN Derby: 43-43.5 Narrow
Shell Cordovan Plain Front Derby
This particular Plain Front Derby is a shoe of special interest because of its darker than usual colour, seldom still in Shell Cordovan. The model itself, the Plain Front Derby is a great classic, a once ubiquitous American business man’s style that traverses the 20th century, even unto this day. Like all Cordovan Oxfords, it (literally) walks the line between a dressy shoe (because of the plain toe) and a sporting shoe (because of the oxblood undertones of the leather. A vintage shoe, with its painstakingly tanned leather from Horween of Chicago, this leather has and will stand the test of time. This is an absolute classic model in the old tradition of workmanship, a handsome and extremely durable shoe.
