Workroom: Cluny Norvegese Split Toe Derby


Our take on the latest derby model merges the refined split toe with the classic Norvegese welt construction traditionally used for boots for the ultimate smart casual look. It features reverse skin stitched pie-crust apron, seamless back and the braided double stitched details. Let's get straight to the point - this will be a fantastic addition to anyone's collection, ready for service for many years to come in numerous settings.

The Cluny workroom project is offered in a variety of grained leathers, with the additional of CF Stead Classic Kudu in Dark Brown colour with limited quantities.

A little note on CF Stead Classic Kudu. This leather hide has a gloss finish with more pronounced grain than its pull-up cousin Waxed Kudu while maintaining the natural marks of a wild antelope. Due to this interesting characteristic, no two pairs will be identical which gives it an unique individuality to each owner.

We have only enough Kudu material on hand to make 5 to 6 pairs, depending on sizes for this leather. Please contact us to be placed on waitlist if you wish to customise your pair in this leather when it's sold out. There is no restriction on other grain leathers however.

The goal of this crowdfunding project is 6 pairs. The base price is S$898. The production will proceed once the goal has been achieved. All participants will receive a free pair of lasted shoe trees in your choice of colour*.

* please note shoe trees may ship separately from the shoes as they have a different production lead time.
