Double buckle straps
The tightening straps are also covered with cowhide leather. They will allow you to adjust the derbies to your feet. They are mounted thanks to a small elastic for perfect adjustment.
Full cowhide leather lining
All Pied de Biche shoes are fully lined with cowhide leather! These leathers are soft and durable.
This small luxury is a guarantee of softness and longevity, and therefore of comfort.
The top insole is also made of cowhide leather. It is doubled with a comfort insole that is 2mm thick as well as an additional 2mm thick cushion in the heel area.
The little doe (Biche) is beautifully embossed, hot stamped in the leather, at the back of this model. Discreet, the doe will accompany you everywhere!
Beveled top piece
The 2.5 centimeter heel is made out of leather. The heel block top piece is beveled with at the back a natural rubber pad and at the front a leather layer.
The leathers used for the shoe upper are most often greased leathers, to better repel water, or sometimes suede. We prefer very natural leathers with a vegetable or semi-vegetable tanning.
Our artisans are extremely careful and cautious during the cutting phase, in order to select the most beautiful parts of the skin to ensure you enjoy the most beautiful, soft and comfortable shoes.
Leather sole, Blake stitch
The leather sole is attached to the upper by a Blake stitch. This technique guarantees both flexibility and finesse. Blake stitching also guarantees great longevity, since your cobbler is able to re-sole your Chelsea boots.
The soles of these Derbies shoes have an extra layer made out of natural rubber to give the shoe a better thermal insulation, increased cushioning, as well as a lot of style!
Leather is also a naturally breathable material ,this is the reason why we chose it for our soles!
