Parisian brand Carven take a very smart mixed leather derby shoe and put it on a trusty Vibram sole to create this modern classic.
Using a mixture of highly polished leather and full grain leather on the upper, Carven use texture to perfection to create a shoe with a large amount of character without being too attention seeking. The Blue/Black option is the more characterful choice, but still remains rather subtle, using a deep royal blue on the full grain leather panels to contrast nicely with the black polished leather, but not too much.
Made to an exceptionally high standard in Portugal, these derby shoes are finished off with waxed cotton laces, a grossgrain pull tab and bright red mid-sole stitching to hold on that iconic Vibram sole unit. Stylish and classic while boasting a wealth of modern quirks in character, this shoe is a great addition to the shoe collection.
The Carven Leather Mix shoe is available in both colours from oki-ni with a price tag of £290.
