These are built on the sleek 2030 last, which evolved from a Canadian military last - with a low profile silhouette and an almond shaped toe. Military lasts tend to be some of the best fitting out there, because they had to work for a huge variety of feet, and be comfortable for endless days spent on foot.
The leather is a waxed camel hide, fully dyed black with a slight shine and highly textured grain. A blend of visual interest and subtlety, we wanted a leather that could stand up to abuse and still look good - a shoe that isn't necessarily the most dramatic patina project, but rather a more consistent look throughout its life.
The leather is neither stiff nor soft, with a very even temper that will break in quickly and feel comfortable from minute one thanks to the full lining. The hide has also been treated with wax following the tanning process, making it hardy, water-resistant, and prone to shrugging off scuffs.
The Derby Shoe was originally designed decades ago by Edwin Viberg, but never put into production. After finding his original paper patterns Viberg spent a year sampling and reworking his concept. The end result is their most refined shoe to date. It's finished with 6 gunmetal eyelets, a partially structured toe, a 360-degree flat welt, and the whole thing is standing on the Vibram 2021 wedge sole (no relation to the year).
Take one size smaller than your Brannock size. If you have wide feet, take 1/2 size smaller than Brannock.
