What is a Derby shoe?
The Derby shoe is a classic shoe design for any man’s wardrobe.
Equally at home with a pair of jeans or a 3-piece suit, the Derby is a slightly more relaxed version of an oxford. Also known as a Gibson, the Derby shoe is a popular choice for all occasions.
The main feature of a Derby shoe is found within it’s “open-lacing” method of closure. The eyelets are sewn on top of two separate panels, as opposed to an Oxford which has the panels sewn together at the bottom.
Our Mainline collection of Derby shoes includes designs produced in leathers, suedes and fabrics.
You may also wish to view our Patina Derby Shoes collection, where you will find a selection of Derby shoes produced in luxurious handmade patina leathers.
Derby Shoe Designs
The Classic Derby Shoe
Civardi’s classic Derby shoe is a four eyelet lace-up, with an open-laced closure. This style can be produced with or without a toe-cap.
Should you choose to have a toe-cap, you can have a punched toe design or a plain toe, as shown on our Senator Derby shoes.
The Split Toe Derby Shoe
This special Derby shoe model shares it’s basic open-laced construction with our classic Derby shoes. The rear of the shoe differs slightly in that a seperate heel-piece is sewn onto the rear quarters.
The key difference however is to be found at the front of the shoe where a curved seam runs around the apron. The toe area in front of this seam is then split vertically into two pieces – thus a Split-Toe Derby!
This design has the effect of elongating the toe and allows for the creation of some truly beautiful lace-up shoe designs such as the rich burnished brown leather Congress Derby shoe.
If you choose to custom design your Derby shoes, Civardi offers you a vast range of customization options.
Our 3D product configurator allows you to choose even the most minor details such as the color of laces and shoe-lining.
Mainline Derby shoes can be custom designed in a range of materials including leathers, suedes and fabrics.
Depending on the exact model, you can mix materials to create a unique contrasting design.

Choose the Soles
All Civardi Mainline Shoes are produced on Goodyear Welted soles – a sign of our commitment to time-honored, quality shoe-making.
We are able to produce Derby shoes on a range of Goodyear welted soles including plain leather and hard-wearing Dainite rubber.
Don’t forget that for most of our soles there is a choice of available colors, welts and indeed heel-heights.
It’s fair to say that the sole can make a huge difference to the overall aesthetic of a shoe. Thankfully with Civardi you can see an accurate 3D image of your design when you use our product customization tool.
