Choosing a pair of classic men's shoes is like wearing the real made in Italy to enjoy all the experience of the craftsman who made that specific model.
There are two types of classic men's shoes: lace-ups and moccasins. In turn the lace-ups are divided into Oxford and derby shoes.
The Oxford shoes, thanks to a refined and impeccable style, is by far the most widespread formal model. Its peculiarity lies in the cuff (ie the two parts where the eyelets reside, the holes for passing the laces) which is sewn under the mask and overlaps with it.
The leg of the derby shoes, on the other hand, is sewn over the mask and therefore the edges are wrapped around the instep and can be separated for their entire length. The derbies are particularly suitable for those with a broad floor and a high instep.
