Unique take on the derby shoes

I was looking for casual brown leather shoes that could work with jeans and chinos for office wear. These shoes meet my requirements. The fit is good (size down by 0.5 compared to regular athletic shoes) and the brandy color is eye catching. The shoes are very thin and lightweight. Haven't used them enough to comment on durability.

New favorite shoes!

Broke in really quick and they look amazing. Have been able to wear them with no socks without any issues. Usually shoes tear up my heels but these have been great. Can't wait to get another pair in a different shade. They also fit true to size

Simple, utilitarian

The design of this shoe is simple and utilitarian. No bells or whistles, but it looks great and seems to be constructed well. Looks great dressed up or down.
