Our classic Smart Derbys first introduced in 2014 have been revisited in this new silhouette. Crafted in a small specialist Portugese factory they are the product of years of learning about what makes a good shoe. Behind the WVS story has been us listening to our customers, researching and developing the latest vegan materials and components and developing relationships and working with some of the top footwear experts and producers out there. The fit is just as you expect, they are not narrow and do not pinch. The Smart Derbys sit comfortably around your foot, they make you feel good when you put them on. On a shoe as simple as this, everything needs to be perfect. Excellence is found in the details. The uppers are made from our signature Italian vegan leather produced from cereal crops organically grown in northern Europe to create a bio oil in a carbon neutral process. The outsoles are crafted from a sheet of rubber hand cut to shape then scored on the bottom for added grip. The laces are slightly longer to allow a nice bow, the ends are tipped with gold metal adding a touch of luxe. The shoe is lined with two types of super soft vegan suede, creating not only a lovely place to nestle your foot but allowing air to circulate helping it stay cool. A discrete WVS is embossed on the outsole to finish. These are shoes for you to cherish for years, we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed the journey of creating them.

Product Care

We use high quality vegan leathers and suedes to make our footwear, you will find your purchase requires little attention to keep looking as good as new.

Our footwear does not spoil or stain when it gets wet. In-fact it performs really well in wet and muddy conditions. Unlike leather or suede our materials do not spoil or mark even when in contact with road salt and snow slush in winter conditions.

This footwear is water resistant. This means you can wear for extended periods of time in light rain, walk through shallow puddles, walk through wet grass, light snow and have dry feet. We do not recommend wearing in deep snow, deep puddles, running water or extended periods of heavy rain. In these cases water will penetrate the footwear, usually through the lace holes or around the tongue giving you wet feet.

You can wear these in colder temperatures, however they are not insulated. We recommend wearing a thick insulating sock to keep your feet warm in freezing temperatures or you may get cold feet.

Our footwear is easy to clean. Here are some general cleaning instructions:

Vegan leather uppers Wipe down with warm water with a mild soap solution and a cloth or brush. To dry pad down with paper towels or a towel. Do not place too close to direct heat sources as this can damage the material. Polish can be used to bring out a shine and return colour. Any synthetic product should work just fine, apply as described in the instructions. It is recommended you test an inconspicuous area first.

Vegan suede uppers Wait until dry then brush with a suede brush or something similar. For more extreme cases you can wipe down with warm water with a mild soap solution and a cloth or brush. To dry pad down with paper towels or a towel. Do not place too close to direct heat sources as this can damage the material. You should not expect water marks as the material does not mark or stain like conventional suede when it gets wet.

Please do not apply waterproof or other protective treatments. This is because these treatments are not necessary and can mark and damage the materials. These treatments are not meant for vegan leather, they do not react well when applied and they do not react well when applied.
