N° 5221 details

As part of the Patina Line, No. 5221 is distinguished by the primarily vegetable-tanned soft calf leather which graces the entire upper part of the shaft. This material is known for its suppleness, and is produced using a special vegetable tanning process that opens the pores of the leather and thereby makes the colours of subsequently applied dyes really pop. A hand finish lends these shoes a fascinating antique look, acting as another visual highlight. The toes and the heel cap are noticeably darker and contrast with the other sections of the shaft.

A modern look for a classic shoe


Open five-eyelet lacing and straightforward shaft design mark this lace-up shoe as a classic Plain Derby for men. That being said, in addition to the unusual colouring, the narrow last, particularly in the forefoot, modernises this versatile lace-up model.

Made entirely of leather, No. 5221, like all of our classic men’s shoes, is manufactured in the Goodyear-welted style by master shoemakers in Spain. Thanks to this centuries-old production method, our fine full-grain leather shoes prove themselves to be particularly durable and easy to repair. A high leather content further ensures that the shoes are naturally flexible, and breathable, and creates a pleasant environment for the foot.

This classic shoe is the right choice for elegant events and is particularly well suited for men with a high instep. Over the years, the black Plain Derby has become a beloved choice for festive occasions and the office, as well as for leisure activities. Its new look, however, means No. 5221 is ideal for businesses with comparatively relaxed dress codes – but, of course, this lace-up shoe is also the perfect stylish highlight when paired with jeans and a T-shirt.

Italian Last

The Italian last is distinguished by a dynamically tapering front section, while the ball of the foot enjoys ample space. The last fits closely against the midfoot area and then flows into a pleasantly rounded heel. Suitable for narrow to average feet.

Soft Calf

Soft Calf

Our soft calf leather is a predominantly vegetable-tanned, fully dyed leather upper from Italy whose open porosity makes the colours of subsequently applied dyes really pop. An elaborate hand finish makes this soft calf leather even more exquisite. One-of-a-kind in our collection.

Finish

Hand Finish

The soft calf leather is dyed in the Italian tannery, but it is the intense leatherwork done by hand in the factory, called a hand finish, that creates the thrilling contrasts and shadows that give this soft calf leather its unique look.

General information about our formal shoe collection

Goodyear-Welted

Goodyear-Welted

The gold standard when it comes to shoe manufacturing. Goodyear welting is a painstaking process that involves stitching the shaft and outsole to a thin strip of leather. Shoes made this way are extremely stable, durable, breathable, and easy to repair.

Handcrafted

Handcrafted

Mass-produced shoes are glued together on assembly lines. All of our premium, full-leather shoes, on the other hand, are handcrafted to the finest standards of quality. You can see and feel the difference.

Full-Leather Shoes

Full-Leather Shoes

The high quality of these shoes is reflected in their high leather content. Their uppers, lining, insoles, and outsoles are made from the finest leather. They even have leather heels, made by painstakingly stacking thin layers of leather on top of one another.

Construction

Construction

These shoes consist of roughly 65 separate parts. They took about 210 steps to assemble. We rely upon premium materials and traditional production methods to ensure that our footwear is of the absolute highest quality.

Gentleman's Corner

Gentleman's Corner

These shoes come equipped with a so-called "gentleman's corner". This is a small notch cut from the inside corner of the heel. This has a practical purpose—it prevents your trouser leg from catching on your shoe.

Breathable

Breathable

This shoe boasts a high proportion of leather, and has been assembled without the use of adhesive bonding—both of these factors ensure proper air circulation and prevent moisture from penetrating the surface. Dry, well-ventilated feet are healthy feet.

Delivery Content

Of course, our focus is on your new pair of shoes. But to underline our passion for our products, we enclose a few extras in your shipment. We hope that sparks your excitement about your new footwear.

Delivery
Shoebox

Shoebox

Our passion for our products is reflected in their packaging. All of our shoes come in an elegant black shoebox emblazoned with the SHOEPASSION.com logo. Said shoebox is easy to open, thanks to a special opening on the side, and comes with a note on our philosophy.

Shoe Bag

Shoe Bag

These shoes come stored inside two shoe bags, packed into a shoebox. Shoe bags are a great way to maintain their condition—they protect your footwear from soiling and scratching. They also let you transport your shoes in style.

Shoe Care Guide

Shoe Care Guide

Goodyear-welted shoes last far longer than mass-produced models. A dedicated cleaning and care routine is an indispensable part of keeping your shoes in mint condition. An introductory guide to shoe care is included with your order.

The values we live by

Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.

Values
EU

Made in EU

While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.

Environmentally sustainable

Environmentally sustainable

For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.

Pricing

Pricing

Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.

Transparency

Transparency

From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.
