Black Pebble-Grain Calfskin Derby Combat Boots$ 1,320
- Product Notes
A favourite of The Rake's founder Wei Koh, these Norman Vilaltas have a studied military edge on the classic derby boot. This style is bench grade constructed at every stage in Vilalta’s Barcelona atelier. Goodyear-welted Vibram Gumlite Commando soles keep the boots light yet hard-wearing and offer exceptional traction. Padded insoles make their knobbly tread extra comfortable. The leg-lengthening uppers are an attractive pebble-grain leather with rounded toes and closed lacing. The calfskin is from Tanneries du Puy, renowned specialists in this box-calf leather and a historic partner of Hermès. The uppers are finished with the brand's signature polished black patina. Norman Vilalta's skilled artisans give every pair a professional polish and glaçage before delivery. Please note that the colour and patina of the leather may vary slightly depending on your screen's resolution.

The mastermind behind Norman Vilalta worked as a lawyer before changing professions and training as a shoemaker in Florence – and we at The Rake are glad he did. After honing the incredibly specialised techniques, the Argentinian national founded his business, initially specialising in bespoke before adding ready-to-wear to the brand's offering. Innovative by nature, Vilalta takes classic styles – such as a Derby or Chelsea boot – and puts a spin on them, playing with texture, design or thickness of the sole, while maintaining an unwavering level of comfort and durability.
