This week, we have failed to refrain from abstract political philosophy, which has manifested in a well-timed and grounded footwear release that hearkens back to the Age of Reason. Thence, for our signature Viberg shoe collaboration of the summer, we bring you a neo-classical inspired Tannino Vitello Calf Derby that hallmarks the virtuous flair of post-renaissance design and thought that took form in the furniture, fashion, and feathered quills of the Age of Enlightenment. These Derbys transport one to the past with the sense they could have belonged to Francis Bacon or Thomas Paine, who inspired foundational ideals of human capability and country that we are still striving to attain to this day.
Evolution is revolution, and the full-grain vegetable tanned Tannino Vitello Calf constitutionally communicates that fact, with a slightly nubucked grain that reveals a matte finish to enable the development of dramatic color and character like an antiqued golden oak that will burn bright like the flames of liberty. This Derby Shoe addition to our core-exclusive Vitello Calf assembly of classic collectable collaborations comes with tonal tan leather French binding and is enhanced with brass eyelets to provide a clean and balanced canvas that's framed with an antiqued leather flat welt and midsole to provide a make-up made for profound patina potential when scarred by battle, while remaining dutifully distinguished for the revolutionary delegate.
To grant an advanced and humanistic shape, the 2020 Last has an anatomical approach to a sophisticated form fastened with the tasteful and high-traction British made Ridgeway Sole for a stable foundation that will conquer all conditions. Finally, this Derby has been Goodyear welted with traditional techniques and channeled insoles that provide litheness and longevity that's assured with Viberg's precise craftsmanship. So, pull out your history book and enlighten yourself through drab days with a Derby that evolves toward a new era while respecting timeless ideals and fundamental principles.
