Viberg Digs Their Heels Into Shell Cordovan Derbies

Back with little regard for personal finances or the feelings of pretty much anyone with a pulse, Viberg went and did some doughnuts on the front lawn of All Other Oxfords, dropping their unimpeachable Derby Shoe in three (THREE!) different shell cordovan iterations.

So, for those wondering what the heart-eyes emoji and the meteor emoji’s science baby would look like if that science baby also was a shoe*, here. It’s this. 

(*Get help if you’re wondering that. I have yet to do so and we’re all dealing with the fallout.)

Made in Canada with either Black, Dark Cognac or Color 8 shell cordovan leather, these feature stitchdown construction, a stacked leather mid-sole and a Dainite outsole, which is always a good start. 

But because stories are important for four-figure footwear, know that this sleek, timeless design isn’t just a retread:  the good folks at Viberg apparently came across some decades-old patterns for an un-produced Derby about a year ago, patterns done by Edwin Viberg himself. They then spent the next year “sampling and reworking” things before coming up with (their words, not mine) their “most refined product to date.”

And if you have a disposable $3,500 or so, all three can be yours. 

Available at Viberg in Black, Dark Cognac and Color 8, all for $1,070.
