Founded in 1931 by Ed Viberg, the Canadian company is now in its 3rd generation and is still entirely family owned and operated. Viberg use traditional manufacturing methods and only the best materials sourced from around the world: brass tacks from England, heavyweight insoles from Spain, Vibram outsoles and the finest upper leathers from renowned tanneries in the USA and Italy. There are over 200 steps that go into producing a pair of Viberg boots and all of them are performed in their own facility by skilled craftspeople.
The Derby Boot is a simplified reinterpretation of Viberg's iconic Service Boot pattern. They removed the counter panel, replacing it with a narrow backstay and the seams of the quarters feature French Binding for the first time on a Viberg product. This is a classic lace-up ankle boot in it's most essential form.
