A gent can never have too many shoes

Elegant derby shoe. Premium quality Italian Parma leather upper in burnished Aubergine on our fashionable pointy toe last. Stag logo embossed heel tab. Leather collar lining and sock, textile lining featuring a repeat of our stag logo. Leather sole with GS branded TPR forepart and heel piece for improved durability and grip. 

Funny isn’t it how aubergine is such a cool way to describe dark purple? Imagine calling something ‘banana yellow’ or ‘dragon fruit pink’. It’s not quite the same. But the unassuming, underappreciated fruit that is the aubergine, works perfectly when describing our Holden derby shoe. Who doesn’t want to own a pair of aubergine shoes? We’ve just noticed the more you say aubergine, and the more you read it, the weirder it sounds. Aubergine.

Product Details

Premium quality leathers

We only use the finest eco-friendly, vegetable tanned, "A" grade leathers - sourced from the best tanneries - in order to produce high quality and durable shoes. This particular one is a premium Italian Parma leather. 100% chromium free.

Finest Parma leather

This shoe utilises two tones of premium quality Parma leather. Sourced from Tuscany's finest tanneries, this is lightly tanned, snuff grain leather to allow the natural features of the skin to show through the hide and create a unique and rich finish. This is further enhanced by adding burnishing details to key areas by hand-adding further depth and tone to the upper.

Soft calfskin lining

We combine a soft calfskin leather lining with a printed cotton skeleton for comfort and breathability. The sock and collar are not only luxurious, but they improve comfort and give the shoe strength and support in the key areas.

Hidden comfort

We truly break the misconception that smart shoes cannot be comfortable. We've achieved this by adding a little more volume within the shoe to allow more foam padding to be added under the sock. This is further enhanced by a heel cookie, which reduces impact shock through heel strikes. Our hard work is constantly rewarded by glowing feedback of the amazing comfort of our shoes.

Stacked leather sole

This shoe is finished with a leather stacked sole unit. Enhanced with a durable anti-slip TPR forepart and heel piece, these shoes will have much better grip and longevity than a full leather sole.

Hand cut leather selection

In order to offer the best shoe possible, we ensure that only the best sections of leather hide are used in production. To achieve this, the leather selection and cutting processes are done by hand. While this is much more laborious than using moulds or lasers, we are able to avoid cuts, looseness or other unwanted imperfections on the finished article.

The Most Stylish And Comfortable Shoes I've Ever Worn!

I was searching for a long time for a pair of good quality, good looking shoes. I wanted something a bit different from the normal mass produced stuff available on the high street. Luckily I stumbled across the Goodwin Smith Website. A number of things stood out; firstly the styles, with both classic and quirky designs. Secondly was the quality, backed up with numerous 5 Star reviews. The final thing which swayed me was the price. I couldn't find anything comparable, anywhere. I ordered The Holden Navy as I like the slightly pointed toe. When the parcel arrived in double quick time I was not disappointed. The packaging oozed class and the shoes look even better in real life. I tried them on and they were immediately comfortable. You can feel the spring in the sole which was important for me as I've suffered with plantar fasciitis in the past. In work, I keep getting admiring comments and being asked where I bought the shoes from. I was so impressed I bought 2 more pairs. The question is not whether I'll be buying more, it's which ones shall I pick as there's so many more that I want! From the service to the style, I thoroughly recommend Goodwin Smith.
