Bastion Oxford - Rock Eco Veg Suede
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 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.
