Keble Split-toe DerbyUSD 1,150
We are excited to be one of the first stockists of Foster & Son’s new line of in-house made Ready-to-Wear shoes. Looking back on 179 years of creating bespoke shoes, and using vintage bespoke samples and patterns from the 19th and 20th century, this first collection has recreated vintage styles in the new factory. The Foster & Son team has taken designs previously reserved for bespoke customers only, making them available to the public for the very first time.
The Keble Norwegian Derby by Foster & Son sits on the comfortable and elegant No. 5 Last, the classic “smart round” Foster last, following the flowing lines of their archive which distills decades of London’s West-End style. The Keble Derby features a “pie-crust” apron which is hand-sewn using a boar’s bristle needle, one of shoe-making’s most intricate crafts. This handsome shoe has a seamless back counter and should become a wardrobe favorite very quickly. This model is made up in supple antique oak calf leather, complete with double oak bark tanned soles that taper towards the waist of the shoe.
The 05 Last is Foster & Son’s almond shaped last. The width throughout the shoe and instep is standard.
We suggest taking a half to full size down from your normal US size as sizes are listed in UK.
