We launched our Derby Shoe over a year ago, but in that time we have continued to alter and refine the pattern. We are excited to release this updated version with a lower outside quarter for improved fit and French Binding at the seams which allows us to offer the silhouette in a larger range of materials. We've also introduced a new shape called the 1004 or Cantilever last for this make up. Based on a vintage orthopaedic shoe, this new shape mimics the natural anatomy of the human foot and provides a snug, locked in fit. To celebrate this updated pattern and new last we decided to order a special batch of Black Shell Cordovan from Horween with a Scotch Grain print as a nod to traditional military officer's shoes.

One of our more rarely seen offerings, the Apsley Boot takes its inspiration from an early 20th century hiking boot pattern. We've made this version out of Horween's Natural Waxed Flesh leather which mimics the the heavily greased roughout found on early military issue footwear. The combination of this robust leather with a Commando Sole and Naildown construction make this a heavy-duty boot option perfect for the coming months.

Repairs is a series highlighting some of the most interesting and well-worn boots that come back to our factory for maintenance.

While we are constantly experimenting with new patterns and unique materials, we always find ourselves coming back to the classics. A simple brown lace up boot is possibly the most versatile piece of footwear anyone can own and it always gets better with wear. In the pursuit of perfecting this style we have offered the Service Boot in over 25 variations of brown leathers in the past four years, ranging from tan to coffee coloured hides in everything from reindeer to kangaroo. With that being said this vegetable tanned Calfskin from an artisanal Italian tannery might just be our best version yet. This is a high character leather that will dull with wear, but can always be polished to restore its original shine. Click through for the full feature and purchase the Service Boot Brown Calf here.
The Chelsea boot, which is characterized by its elastic side panel, is a unisex style which dates back to the mid-1800s. It would later become an iconic symbol of British culture in the 1950s and 60s, with strong associations to the mod scene. Our version features a wholecut upper and a custom last inspired by a traditional Argentinian riding boot. For the debut of this new pattern on Viberg.com we choose a heavyweight British suede in a milky, offwhite tone. Click through for the full feature.
