This Zonkey Boot one-eyelet Norwegian derby on the High Street last is made from full-grain French calf suede and features an apron sewn by hand with tone-in-tone thread. The line of its apron extends into the line of the facing and gives the vamp its elongated appearance.
Compared with other Norwegian types this one-eyelet style is certainly amongst the dressiest. On the feet, it feels similar to wearing a high-necked slip-on with a little bit of extra grip on the instep provided by a double loop of the lace.
The shoes come with dark brown leather lining and vegetable tanned bovine leather necks insoles. The 8.5 mm leather soles are hand welted.
