Oxfords are shoes with the quarters sewn under the vamp. Due to this oxfords are considered to be stricter and more elegant than derby shoes, which have the quarters sewn on top of the vamp. On the other hand, those who have high instep should pick oxfords very carefully as it is for sure not all the models of these shoes that will fit them well.
Derbys are shoes and boots with open lacing; their quarters are sewn on top of the vamp. Derbys can be adorned with decorative perforations (broguing), but there are some styles with no broguing as well. Under otherwise equal conditions derbys are less formal than oxfords, but they are a better fit for people with high instep.
Brogues are shoes or boots with decorative perforation along the seams and in some cases on the toe cap. The holes aren’t flow-through. Brogues can be both oxford and derby, and they are characterised with quite high level of universality.
Loafers are laceless shoes that have heels; moreover, it is traditionally considered that there should be a semi-circular seam on the vamp of any loafers. Loafers are an informal type of footwear, but still quite a versatile one; in some cases they can be a fine match for both formal suits and jeans.
Monks are shoes or boots with one or two buckles; they are laceless. You can put these shoes on and off very fast. Even though monks are less formal than oxfords, some models look strict and make a good match for suits.
