Viberg Derby Boot in Mahogany Boxboard Shell Cordovan
Breakdancing, shipping logistics, and Viberg. What do all these things have in common? Cardboard. Viberg’s latest is their clean, straightforward Derby Boot, this time crafted in a Horween Mahogany Shell Cordovan. The traditionally non-porous, shiny equine-behind leather takes on a boxboard print, which is Horween’s fancy way of saying that it’s a hatch grain. Not quite sure that it passes as some sort of cardboard texture, but that’s beside the point. Plain toe, eight blind eyelets, a goodyear welt, natural midsoles, and a Dainite outsole make up just some of the details on this boxy boot.
It’s pretty rare to see this leather in anything but a smooth grain, so you might want to hop on it while it’s still on pre-order.
Available for $1070 at Viberg.
