Hemingway is Here

After a successful debut in dark mahogany last year, we were eager to make a small batch of Hemingway Derby Boots for those who can't wait for a MTO.

Hemingway features a tasteful combination of French box calf leather from Tanneries du Puy combined with box vegano inca from Tanneries du Annonay, an elegant mix of textures.

Four eyelet lacing with three speed hooks support easy and flexible fitting.

A Vibram rubber button sole delivers comfort that will support your feet all day long. The Goodyear-welt ensures that your boots last a lifetime.

The unlined shaft enables increased ankle mobility and the subtle embroidery up the heel is a harmonious Norman Vilalta design touch.

We selected a beautiful ebony patina, a black with dark brown undertones, the perfect alternative to the solid black or brown boot, as well as a warm cognac which will give any outfit a distinguished dash of color.

Every pair of boots are bench made, Goodyear-welted, and hand finished by our artisan team in Spain before shipment.

The hand finishing process includes the use of glass, sandpaper, inks, creams, waxes, fire and multiple iron tools to achieve a bespoke level finishing that the Norman Vilalta brand has become known for.

Our Hemingway Derby Boot in Cognac and Hemingway Derby Boot in Ebony are now available online and in our men´s bespoke workshop and boutique in Barcelona, Spain.

We produced a very small batch of these boots, therefore we encourage you to secure your size while it is still available.
