Complementary shipping to the US and Canada. Flat rate worldwide.
Select Size

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.

Our 2020 last is based on an anatomical shoe last that will hold and support the natural shape of your feet providing a comforting fit with a smarter looking silhouette.  We wanted to find the balance between our traditional almond toe 2030 and semi anatomical 2040 last, while allowing for an elegantly shaped shoe.  The 2020 features a D width forefront with a narrow tapered waist and average heel width to hold and support your feet.

The Bastion Oxford is an archival pattern dating back to 1960 when it was created by Ed Viberg.  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.

Eco Veg suede is a new proprietary Stead tannage that is chrome and metal-free.  Aside from being weatherproof and environmentally friendly, the absence of chrome produces an unusually bright and clean color profile that is not present in any other suede tannages.

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

          Bastion Oxford

          The Bastion Oxford is an archival pattern that dates back to 1960 when Ed Viberg created both an Oxford and a Derby style shoe. 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.


          Built using our Viberg Chanelled Insole Goodyear welt method, the Bastion Oxford combines timeless design with our legendary durability to create a pair of shoes that will last a lifetime.

          The Refined Collection

          The Refined Collection is our study of the small, invisible details that define quality in traditional shoemaking. Over the past half decade, we have been sourcing and collecting specialty machines that allow us to build this new collection, while also implementing these techniques and unique details throughout our full product range.
