The Derby Boot is a simplified reinterpretation of our Service Boot pattern. We removed the counter panel and replaced it with a narrow backstay. The seams of the quarters feature French Binding for the first time on a Viberg product. This is a classic lace-up ankle boot in it's most essential form. To celebrate the launch of this new style we worked with Horween Leather Company to bring in a very special version of their Genuine Shell Cordovan. Unglazed Shell is processed right up until the point where it would normally receive dye, glazing and plating. In this state the Shell has a softer surface feel and a matte finish. Customers have the option of leaving the Shell untreated, allowing for an accelerated patina, or applying a polish for a more traditional finish.
