Following last year’s collaboration with SNEEZE Magazine, Très Bien is back with a new co-sign, linking up with Adieu this time for a set of well crafted Type 141 leather derbies. Coming in colorways of “Blue Gray,” “Black” and “Bottle Green,” each piece has been detailed with luxe croc accents over a smoothly polished leather foundation.
Starting at the top of the silhouette is a pair of angular eyelet panels complemented by thin round waxed laces. A smooth buffed texture is seen along the rear half of the shoe and runs all the way up to the toecap. To contrast the sleek uppers, the toebox has been treated with tonal croc accents that are framed by clean piping along the moc seam. All of these features sit atop a thin black welt and a chunky beige rubber gum sole, while nuanced details like lush suede inner linings and gold-trimmed debossing give the sartorial shoe extra touches of refinement.
The Très Bien x Adieu Type 141 Leather Derbies are currently available at Très Bien’s website for $467 USD.
