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 2030 Last is our most popular last and is based on a Canadian military boot with a low profile and almond-shaped toe.

For sizing, we recommended one size smaller than your Brannock size. If you have wide feet, take 1/2 size smaller than your Brannock size

Our Derby was first introduced in 1960 when Edwin Viberg developed this style for workers who needed a durable, less rugged alternative to a workboot. We brought this style back into our collection in 2014 and updated Ed's original pattern by giving a more contemporary shape to the quarter panels and finishing the edges with French binding. 

C.F. Stead's Kudu has a unique grain pattern, with no two skins being the same. Because these animals have had to adapt to the harsh terrain of the African savannah, Kudu provides a unique combination of softness and strength, and Stead's wax plate finish accentuates the natural character of this leather.

    Archival Utility

    The Derby shoe was conceived in the early 1800s as a casual field shoe because the single-piece vamp stretches from the top of the tongue to the tip of the toe, making it easy to clean and allowing it to expand under exertion.

    Timeless Versatility

    We've updated Ed's original 1960s pattern with a more contemporary shape and finished the edges with French binding, making the Viberg Derby suitable for casual or formal settings.
