Alligator skin is the ultimate exotic leather. It’s exclusive, delicate and expensive. Uniquely soft and pliable, its belly scales are devoid of the bone and follicle markings that characterize crocodile skin, thus lending it that immaculate, iconic look, which makes it the ideal choice for an array of luxury accessories. Maison Kingsley Couture exclusively uses American alligator.
The Men's Derby silhouette is a bit more casual than the oxford, featuring an open lacing system with the quarters sewn atop the vamp. The derby became a popular sporting and hunting shoe in the 1850s. By the arrival of the 20th century the derby had become arrived on the scene as it's own semi-formal shoe.
The derby is perfect for any casual look and can also be dressed up with a suit and tie. The sole is constructed with our finest Goodyear Welt utilizing traditional shoe-making techniques. Gooyear welt construction ensures long-lasting, durable, flexible, and comfortable use. Paired with an Italian calf leather hand-painted interior lining.
The machinery used for the Goodyear Welting process was invented by Charles Goodyear Jr., the son of Charles Goodyear in 1869. It is considered the gold-standard welt in the high-end shoe market today.
