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.

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

Introduced in 2016 as part of our Classic Collection, the Slipper is a casually elegant hard-soled shoe for spring and summer. Cut from a single piece of leather and built on our famed 2030 Last, the Goodyear Welted upper sits on a low-profile Lactae Hevea® natural latex sole that provides comfort and cushioning when worn without socks.

This first-edition makeup marks the first time that Viberg has used Shinki Horsebutt in the Slipper because the single-piece upper requires a large surface area, and Shinki has been collecting the raw skins for over a year. 

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

• Shinki Horsebutt (Japan)
• Natural edge finish
• Black 360° storm welt
• Smoke natural latex Lactae Hevea sole


Shinki Hikaku was established in 1951 and, like Viberg, is a family-run business. As the only tannery in the world devoted exclusively to horse leather, their typical tanning process involves drying and aging stages that take up to four months and produce a unique texture and grain.

Travel Inspired

The inspiration for this concept came from a vintage travel slipper pulled from our design archives. We deconstructed the upper, making it free of all stiffeners, allowing it to fold easily to fit into a travel bag.
