Derby shoes, also referred to as Bluchers, are a type of men's shoe characterized by an open lacing system as opposed to the v-shape, closed lacing found in balmoral shoes. In derby shoes the quarters are sewn on each side of the vamp creating two separate flaps that provide the tabs for the eyelets. These opposing tabs, or lacestays, can then be brought together with the laces to fasten the shoe. Derby shoes are available in a variety of styles including plain toe, cap toe, moc toe, and wingtips.

I have owned Johnston & Murphy shoes in many styles for about 20 years and have found them to be exception shoes in quality, fit and style. The Brennan Plain toe lace up shoe follows this criteria. Again, I am a very happy Johnston & Murphy customer!
Wears this shoe: I wear this shoe to work, church and hanging out with friends and family.
