but let’s be real, derbies were made for people with bad feet or for people who were going to be walking a lot so when their feet swelled it wouldn’t hurt.While there are certainly some chunky, ugly derbies out there, I can't tell if the repeated references to "orthopedic shoes" are a meme as well. There are lots of very attractive non-oxford shoes out there that you don't need a club foot to appreciate.
so while there may be some nice derbies out there these days (I do own some derbies), most are ugly orthopedic shoes that people with trained eyes don’t appreciate, and any rule saying that derbies or loafers are required if not wearing a suit is laughable insofar as loafers are loafers, for whatever that’s worth, and derbies tend to be ugly andgive the impression of foot problems (to those with a trained eye)
