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 1003 Sneaker last was developed exclusively for our sneaker. This last is a generous D width which will accommodate most types of feet. The depth of the last allows for a fully removable footbed which is standard on our sneakers.

The 1003 fits similar in length to our 2030

The Sneaker is our interpretation of classic 1980s trainers with a timeless pattern and clean lines. Produced by hand in our Victoria workshop, the Sneaker features a Vibram sole attached to the premium leather upper using our proprietary Viberg Modified Channeled Insole Goodyear construction method. This process involves using a channeled insole filled with cork and cemented to the upper. The result is a flexible, performance product that remains true to our belief in the principles of authentic shoemaking.

    Sneaker

    The Sneaker is representative of what we value as a brand. Development began in 2010 as part of some pattern exploration we did in collaboration with a well-known global footwear brand. The challenge was to create a performance sneaker with the same methods and machinery we have used to produce our footwear for the past 90 years.

    Viberg Modified Goodyear Construction

    Produced by hand in our Victoria workshop, the Sneaker features a Vibram sole attached to the upper using our proprietary Viberg Modified Channeled Insole Goodyear Welt construction. This method of attaching the welt more closely contours to the shape of your foot to create a better fit.

    Hidden Details

    Referencing classic 1980s trainers, the Sneaker is purpose-built from the ground up. In addition to premium leathers for the uppers, we cushion the Goodyear channeled insoles with 100% natural cork instead of the more commonly used and less expensive foam. Cork offers superior shock absorption, flexibility, water repellency, and durability. These details create a performance product that is uniquely constructed, fully resoleable, and true to our belief in the principles of authentic shoemaking.
