Description

The Military Green Waxed Kudu Derby Shoe is designed from unearthed original patterns produced by Viberg's founder, Edwin Viberg. True to the original half-century old vision, but improved with several iterations on the pattern and now in its final adaptation with a lower quarter, improved fit, and French Binding, this well refined version is about as perfect as it can get. This shoe achieves its updated classic appearance with the Military Green Waxed Kudu tanned by the storied C.F. Stead, known for making the finest versions of Kudu in the world. Kudu is an antelope from southern Africa, with skins that are remarkably flexible and strong while also containing distinct and unique grain character. These hides have been aniline dyed to reveal the grain and markings unique to these wild animals, and are then treated with a subtle wax coating in the tanning process that yields a burnishable matte finish with pull-up qualities and an added layer of protection to an already robust, yet pliable leather. Formed on the 1035 Last for a classical derby silhouette and an accommodative fit with elevated tonal details like antique brass eyelets and a tan leather binding, this Derby is suitable for the well-traveled, vintage-inspired modern man. The casual street aesthetic is balanced with the outdoor-ready natural 360 storm welt atop the industrial Vibram 4014 Christy Sole to produce a shoe that leverages Goodyear welting using traditional techniques coupled with channeled insoles. Each step is carefully executed by exacting Viberg craftsmen, making it a perfect lifetime piece for those looking for a Derby Shoe in a collectable, new-classic ready to take on the city with next-level refinement.
