Derby shoes may have started as a menswear staple, but they’ve recently become a must-have addition to every woman’s wardrobe. The handsome silhouette—perfect with a pair of tailored trousers for the office or with cropped jeans for a more casual look—deftly crosses over from summer to fall. Our new favorite pair comes from Lincoln native Sarah Flint, whose seriously sophisticated shoe designs translate to menswear-inspired pieces that are bold without being too bulky. Her “Fina” saddle derby shoes, handmade in Italy in the same factory as Manolo Blahniks, are a chic and delicate take on the classic men’s style.
