George Split Toe Derby Chestnut Utah Calf
Please know that the store will be closed from May 3rd until May 27th, while we are away. Orders placed in this time will be shipped from the 27th of May onwards.
The iconic split toe derby, with its beautiful, fine stitched edge along the vamp and at the toe, will make you feel perfectly at ease both in a casual and business setting. Made from supple Chestnut Utah calf with a rubber sole, these shoes will quickly become one of your favourite pair of shoes. Made on the Contemporary Almond last, specifically designed for this model.
Construction: Goodyear welted in Spain with rubber sole and straight edge. The Goodyear welt enables the shoe to be resoled. Leather board heel stiffeners and cork footbed for added comfort.
Leather: Utah calf is truly unique. Only the finest hides are used, and a mixture of 9 different fats and oils are added to the leather, which gives Utah calf its famous suppleness.
Last: Our Contemporary Almond last, with its slightly finer toe and more symmetric shape, is the ideal last for our Split Toe derby, and the elegant Wholecut Chelsea boot.
Fit: We advise you to take the same size as you would in Carmina or Crockett & Jones, and to size down half a size from Edward Green or Gaziano and Girling.
Care: Brush your shoes after wearing them to remove dirt, and rotate your shoes between wears. We recommend to use a high quality, natural conditioner ever so often to keep the leather supple. Creams and waxes can be used to restore scuffs and polish the shoes to a lustre.

Tannerie Haas - Utah Calf
As one of the few brands to use the leather, Sons of Henrey is happy to offer Utah grain calf.
This supply, soft grained calf leather comes from Tannerie Haas in France, a tannery that has been making leather since the mid 1800's.
The hides are sourced locally, and are characterised by the tightness of their grain. The hides are vegetable tanned, which means that the leather will have the chance to age over time. A mixture of different fats are added to the leather, which gives Utah calf its famous suppleness. Sons of Henrey uses Utah grain mostly for a more casual, soft shoe.
It was the preferred choice for our split toe derby, and will be used for Chelsea boots, as well as Derby shoes.
