Derby shoes are kindred designs to brogues, Oxfords, Bluchards.
A distinct feature of a traditional derby is the shoe lace eyelets construction
which are positioned on top (as opposed to beneath)
the vamp (front section) of a shoe.
Unlike the Oxford shoe, which were worn for more formal occasions-
the Derby, dating back to the 1850s,
was for casual wear, more specifically hunting / sporting events.
The Ally Lippizan shoe is a design nod to a classic footwear.
