Viberg Shelby Sharp Brogue Boot - 2020 - Ridgeway - Shinki Tan Latigo Horsehide
The Viberg x Division Road Tan Latigo Horsehide Shelby Sharp Brogue Boot is based on classically detailed British footwear with a turn-of-the-century dress aesthetic crafted with an outdoor build. This dutiful downtown design contains a higher quarter with a back stay over counter construction influenced by a vintage officer boot pattern. This military dress iteration of our Peaky Blinders-inspired collaborations befits the evolved character, story, and era of Thomas Shelby and utilizes a limited batch, full-weight vegetable-tanned Latigo Horsehide from the venerable Shinki Tannery in Japan that specializes in hand finished horse hides. This brightly drum dyed Horsehide has been mimosa bark tanned and air dried, causing the leather to become more dense while accentuating the uncorrected grain, and is then hand oiled and waxed through the glazing and finishing process to intensify the natural characteristics of the leather and provide flexibility. Our Shelby Sharp pattern has an exclusive treatment of pinking on the quarter and counter in addition to a brogue cap toe and back stay that hallmarks English detailing and is formed on the 2020 Last with an anatomical shape to provide a comforting and gripped fit in a sophisticated silhouette. To follow the officer-turned-gangster story line in a turn-of-the-century aesthetic, we implemented the appropriate specifications throughout with brass eyelets, French binding, and an antiqued leather 360 storm welt and midsole, atop a British-made Ridgeway sole to provide grit and traction in a slick design that commands the attention an underworld boss requires. Setting the bar even higher, this boot leverages Goodyear welting using traditional techniques coupled with channeled insoles produced by Viberg's exacting craftspeople, resulting in a piece that will outlast the competition through every season and skirmish, while looking as sharp as a Shelby blade.
