If you’re looking for a more casual take on traditional dress shoes, men’s Derby shoes, also known as a Gibsons, are the perfect option. Highly versatile, Derbys lend themselves well to dressing up or down; pair smooth black or brown leather men’s Derby shoes with a suit for a less formal aesthetic or a classic suede design with jeans for a smart-casual look. Due to their open lacing system and spacing between their eyelets, men’s Derby shoes are considered particularly ideal for a wide foot or a foot with a high instep.
Derby shoes are an incredibly versatile style and a great pair to have in your wardrobe for any occasion. Designed to be worn as both a formal shoe and as an everyday smart-casual shoe, Derby shoes are truly a men’s footwear essential.

Whether you’re looking for a classic black or tan shade, or you prefer to make a statement with a bright colour or two-tone style, you can find the perfect pair for you today. Derby shoes look similar to Oxford shoes, however, the main difference is the space between the eyelets tab, unlike the more rigid Oxford style, a Derby style is loose when the laces are undone.
