We’re big fans of Viberg’s boots, which are frequently characterized by classic design, premium materials, and handmade stitch-down construction. Suffice to say, if you like heritage boots that stand the test of time, they’re one of the brands you should definitely check out. Their latest drop, however, included a piece that just made for a pleasant surprise: slip-ons. That’s right, you can now get the same high-end materials and construction the brand is known for in slip-on form with the Viberg Mule Anise Calf Suede.
Is this a first for Viberg? We think so, although we don’t exactly know the complete extent of their catalog, so we could be wrong on that. What we do know is, we’ve never really seen much from the outside the confines of boots (other than the Slipper we also see on their website), making this a likely must-have for long-time fans of the brand.
The Viberg Mule Anise Calf Suede is based on classic slip-ons worn in both eastern and western cultures throughout history. Because, you know, Viberg likes to stick to classic silhouettes and all that. As such, we get a backless design that you’ve probably seen in countless slipper iterations, making for a very casual and comfortable style that still manages to capture that dressier look that the outfit is known for. Seriously, while these things look like they will keep things comfy at home, you can very well throw it in with a pair of jeans for a casual day out of looking absolutely sweet.
It comes with a low-profile, round toe silhouette that, from the front, people will likely mistake for a casual pair of driving shoes, along with a dovetail heel, channeled insole, and Goodyear welt construction. As the name makes clear, it uses Anise calf suede for the material, which it mixes with a leather sole, kip lining, and French binding.
The Viberg Mule Anise Calf Suede is available now, priced at $520.
