The French never cease to amaze me when it comes to being stylistically and colorfully creative in the world of shoes. Here you can see that shoe designer Marc Guyot achieved just that by slightly modifying the design of the common derby model. What I like most about it, is that the extra piece of leather gives you the chance to add another color into the mix, as Mr. Guyot did as well. While I have always been more the fan of an oxford, what I like about a derby such as this, is the fact that vamp extends so high up, giving the shoe a very clean and elegant look. Only in these instances could a derby sway my interests in the oxford!
