Kate, in black, was expertly crafted from supple and smooth Spanish leather that moulds to your foot. She is a solid black menswear style wing tip derby shoe with a gold buckled double monk strap, a round toe and perforated brogue detailing.
With a thick rubber sole and gold studs running around the outsole (or welt), Kate was designed to be the shoe of choice for someone looking to punch up their wardrobe. Rock these shoes all day, any day and be comfortable while doing it.
The Derby shoe can be distinguished from the Oxford by their lacing, the facing and quarter sections of the shoe anatomy are stitched on top of the vamp of the shoe. The monk strap has a long history and has happily evolved into the charming shoe you see today. If you are looking for a semi-formal shoe, the double-monk strap is the perfect transitional option, as it's not as formal as the Oxford but not as relaxed as the Derby shoe or boot.
Kate was inspired by the great Ms Hepburn, a true hoyden.
Ordering shoes online can be tricky, we recommend referring to our size guide for the right fit.
To preserve the beauty of your Hoyden shoes we recommend using a shoe horn to put on your shoes. Don't wiggle your foot around until it goes in, that's a sure way to ruin the structure of your shoe. When not wearing your Hoyden shoes, it is best to maintain the structure of your shoe with a shoe-tree.
Clean away dirt promptly using a non abrasive damp cloth, allow to dry away from heat or cold temperatures. Use a leather cleaner for small scuffs, allow to dry fully then apply a shoe cream to maintain and preserve the beauty of your shoes.
If you take care of your girl, she’ll take care of you!
