The Viberg Derby Shoe is a smart, dressy but workwear-esque shoe that is very comfortable, made to last and can be worn equally well with jeans as with trousers or fatigues due to it being a shapely shoe with robust materials and the double stitched welt and dainite sole. A great on and off duty pair of shoe’s.
The 2020 last is based on Vibergs well known and popular 2030 last, it’s just a bit more angular and shapely looking and has a bit more of a taper at the toe giving it a slightly almond come munson look and feel. A bit more dressy maybe. It is immediately very comfortable and forgiving and the shoe’s feel glove-like when on.
The stoned oil calf leather is sturdy so you know it will hold up but also very supple and forgiving, they won’t take long to take shape and keep it.
Construction & finish: The best materials and construction methods have been used in these shoe’s, just see the DETAILS tab. The finish is nice, even trim with a nice trimmed in waist.
Please see the size guide tab for sizing breakdown.
The Viberg Derby Shoe is listed in Vibergs own sizing which is very similar to standard UK sizing. The 2020 last fits very similar to other Viberg lasts but has a more pronounced taper at the edge of the outer toe (although still very accommodating) so for this reason we recommend going a half size up from your normal size in the 2030 for example.
