Keeping it real

The Stalworth classic Derby is an utterly timeless, trend-proof, and perfect shoe for any season. It’s the backbone of my line, and is such an effortless, dependable and versatile choice that it would make the perfect core of any shoe collection. Or the perfect accent shoe in a bold color. Or both.

This square toe Derby boasts a simplicity of line and lack of ornamentation that verges on the severe, which is one of the reasons this shoe can be such a chameleon. The solid, straightforward lines are enhanced by the square toe, which also keeps it from looking boring or conservative. A classic derby so simple it goes with everything. Easy to dress up or down and the accommodating toe box makes it all kinds of comfortable. This is the kind of shoe that when you go home from work to freshen up before going out you’ll change your clothes, but keep the shoes.

The favorite

It’s wonderful thing to have a piece of clothing that feels like a second skin. The thing that suits you perfectly. That thing that makes you feel all the way like yourself. The thing that you never wonder if it looks good with whatever else you’re wearing, because it totally does. Something you wear when you want feel a little more confident. Something that you put on when you need a little more comfort. The thing you wear when you really want to look good. The first thing you put in your suitcase. The thing you wear until it drops from your body.

About the name

So, I have a thing for archaic words, and stalworth is an older version of the word stalwart, which basically means reliable, steady, constant. Which is definitely what we want in shoes, not to mention lovers, cars and cell phone service, amirite?
