Beautifully constructed from highly polished leathers, this plain fronted Derby shoe is styled with an almond toe silhouette. Crafted exclusively by Loake for Jones Bootmaker, the Apache derby shoe is part of the Comfort Collection with its cushioned leather heel bed. Free from unnecessary adornments and featuring a simple five eyelet lace-up design, this shoe is the epitome of refined elegance and quality. A rubber studded sole sits on the outside of this design, and on the inside sits a cushioned leather insole with subtly added arch and heel support. This design is built upon a 3625 Last, as many high-shine Loake shoes are, to provide a classic and traditional shape.

What does it mean?
A Goodyear Welted construction improves the strength and durability of a shoe. The welt is a strip of leather that is stitched to the bottom edge of the shoe, uniting the upper, linings and welt onto the bonded sole.
The stitching follows the outside of the sole rather than piercing under the foot, as such this maximises water-resistance and reduces the chance of leaking. In most instances cork is used between the insole and the outsole giving insulation, extra cushioning and ventilation.
Charles Goodyear Jr. patented the Goodyear Welt sewing machine in 1871, in Northampton, the epicentre of the footwear industry. Considered the hallmark of well-made shoes, the Goodyear Welt is synonymous with high-quality, longevity and Great British craftsmanship.View more Goodyear Welted styles
