Yang Li is indubitably one of our favourite young designers at the moment, perhaps because his design ethos is so similar to that of designers we love from the past. These derbies are a perfect example of that careful ethos. There is an extreme attention to detail as well as respect for material, form and aesthetic elements present in these shoes. From the delicate taper of the toe to its soft point; the colour of the laces in combination with the sole and leather dye as well as that lovely panelling on the back. I think it's difficult to find a better dress shoe than this.
These fit true to size or perhaps a half size big but are narrow. Please be mindful of this if you should consider purchasing. We are offering these at less than half of the retail price too!
Made in Italy.
10/10. The shoes are brand new and come with the original box, they have only been tried on.
