The Derby Shoe was originally designed decades ago by our founder Edwin Viberg, but never put into production. After finding his original paper patterns we spent a year sampling and reworking his concept. This shoe is our most refined product to date and is true to Ed's original vision.

Britain's C.F. Stead has been producing some of the finest suedes and wild animal leathers in the world for over a century. Their Janus Calf is, in our opinion, the highest quality suede leather available and durable enough to be worn in all conditions. With a full grain and aniline reverse, the resulting hide is firm while maintaining a luxurious and silky finish.
Suede should be regularly brushed or wiped with a clean cloth to remove surface dirt. Our Suede Brush and Eraser (coming soon) can also be used to restore nap and lift marks and stains.
For over 85 years we have been handcrafting some of the world’s best footwear. Third generation family owned and operated and proudly made in Canada.
