I feel like I should be sipping a gimlet or mint julep at the track with these on, although that is pretty far from where I am. Nevertheless, they are beautifully crafted with some interesting style points. Much like suede elbow patches, it softens the look a bit, bringing it a bit more towards casual, but staying smart.
These Brown leather Derby shoes from Folk are fitted with suede panel heels and leather lining and soles. Of course they are handmade from soft, supple leather and would fit in with jeans, tweed or a seersucker suit.
