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 leathers in the world for over a century. Using their Classic Calf base tannage, Oiled Calf is vegetable re-tanned and finished with a natural wax application giving it a soft temper and distinct pull-up characteristic. Comfortable out of the box and durable enough for everyday wear, the smooth full grain Oiled Calf is a slightly more casual option due to the visible grain and high wax content that comes to the surface with wear.
Use our rough brush and venetian cream to keep the leather soft and shiny. View our step-by-step guide for all leathers here.
