So I'd like to get some derby shoes as close to the cp offerings as possible for around $300. Has an alternative guide been made for these yet?

They seem chunkier, maybe it's the toe box?

Carven Derbys bought mine from end.

Looks good

>>9698356
Everything. The derby shoe in OP is a casual shoe and should never be worn with a suit.

Good on you for getting shoe trees to take care of em. Had good experiences with Allen Edmonds in US, but if you want to get 'em at $300 you may have to wait for a sale.
>>

i just got some sanders and am waiting for them to arrive. they were just above $300 shipped. i have heard good things about them but can't speak on it yet

Do these look absolutely horrible? They're old shoes and was hoping to wear
>>
If you scour ebay/grailed for awhile you will probably be able to find a gently used pair of CP's for around 300. I recently bought a pair that had been worn once for $280.

>creased
>unpolished
they look decent otherwise. get some shoe trees (~15$) and polish (cheap, elbow grease) and they'll look quite good, imo
>>
>>9700547
Yeah, polish that shit, Anon. You probably won't fix the creases, but that leather's plenty salvageable. Multiple light coats. If you have saddle soap or some sort of leather treatment thing, hit it with a round of that before you start with the polish.

Bump for further possibilities

>complaining about creases
What? *All* leather creases. It doesn't matter if it's a $1000 shoe or a $50 mall shoe, that shit's going to crease. Want to avoid creases? Keep the shoe in the box and never ever wear them.

How long did it take for you to break them in? I bought those in brown, and they seem to take forever to break in.

I've had CP Derbys for like a year now and the wood on the shoe is way darker than in OP pic, how would I go about cleaning them? Thx x
