Bastion Oxford - Black French Calf

Select Size
Select Width

In the US & Canada, Viberg Boots size differently so we recommend sizing down 1 full size, or if you have wide feet, 1/2 a size down. Unless noted, all widths are size E.

Worldwide, take your standard size. If you need sizing help, reach out on chat.

The sophisticated shape of the 6478 last is the result of a sculpted contoured forefront that creates a distinct profile with slight toe bump.
With sizing similar to our 2030 last, this design offers a tailored anatomical fit and unparalleled functionality.

The Bastion Oxford is an archival pattern created by Edwin Viberg dating back to 1960. It is slightly more formal than the Derby or Rockland Blucher because it features a closed lacing system in which the quarters, the side tabs where the shoelace eyelets are punctured, are sewn under the vamp. We have updated the original style by tightly trimming the waist with a round blade, allowing it to contour to the shape of the last.

Small batch, limited run production from our factory in Victoria, BC.

The Bastion Oxford

Dating back to 1960, the Bastion Oxford is an updated version of an archival pattern that was created by Edwin Viberg. A round blade is used to contour the shape of the last, creating the signature tightly trimmed waist and heel of this revised pattern. Designed with formal dressing in mind, the Bastion Oxford is produced using Viberg Channeled Insole Goodyear Welt construction to ensure the same level of durability as an our industrial products.

The Refined Collection

The Refined Collection is our study of the small, invisible details that define quality in traditional shoemaking.
