2133 is newer and includes the black welt models. I could be wrong but seems like the 2133 has more of a true black crepe sole versus the grayish sole on the 1859, doesn't seem to be any other obvious differences. I haven't handled 2133 so can't comment if the crepe is of similar material.Planning on picking up the black shine derbies. Does anyone know the difference between the 1859 and 2133 models, if any?
On another note, keeping derby shines in a freezing garage is a terrible idea if you want them readily accessible. The other morning when I threw them on the plasticky leather was super hard and sharp, cutting into my ankles and the crepe was frozen solid and would barely bend. Would put them in storage next winter.
