DV002 fits true to size.


  • Lace-up oxfords in vegetable tanned calf leather
  • Hand-carved rosewood accents
  • Hand woven leather panel
  • Fully lined in calfskin
  • Soles in 100% leather
  • DV002 is a hand-made hybrid shoe. Its construction is based on an oxford style fused with a derby outer layer, a Vanassibara trademark
  • The upper is 100% made from vegetable tanned calfskin
  • The accents are made from rosewood, a tropical hard wood of the highest natural durability and resistance to decay. Our rosewood comes from a sustainable plantation. Each component is entirely hand-carved by some of the world’s best wood artisans from Java. The base curvature of each piece follows the natural angles of the foot and their various sizes are made in proportion to the size of the shoe
  • The rosewood accents are permanently attached onto the outer layer that remains free for a comfortable walking
  • The sole was engineered with a pronounced angle at the front base, which we call toe spring. A high toe spring, specially in thicker soles, has a major benefit: it greatly helps walking as there is no need to bend the foot as much because the shape of the sole does that for you. As a result you will feel less tired and you will enjoy a more relaxed walk
  • This approach will prevent the leather from creasing like a classic shoe
  • DV002 is entirely lined in super soft calfskin leather
  • Vanassibaras will never smell unpleasant. Our shoes are mounted on a breathable raw leather insole which naturally absorbs excessive sweat from the feet. That’s an old technique that only true luxury brands can afford
  • The sole is actually hand-made too. The plateau and the heel are made from layers of cut, trimmed and sanded leather sheets, which are mounted onto a leather base to form the finished sole
  • Natural vegetable dyed calfskin used at Vanassibara ages beautifully over time. Due to the exceptional quality of the raw material, the elasticity of the leather fibers have been relatively well preserved during the vegetable tanning process
  • A good neutral leather protection cream may be used to maintain the leather
  • The best way to preserve your leather sole is to start wearing them on dry ground first. Avoid getting the soles wet whilst the shoes are still new. After that, occasional wetness and dirt from the ground won’t affect its durability but never let the soles become completely soaked
  • Calf is a relatively strong leather but like all leather products, they might become marked with wear and occasionally require maintenance
  • Gently wipe the product with a soft damp cloth and allow to air dry away from direct heat
  • Avoid contact with liquids containing alcohol or solvents, as this will cause irreversible damage to the surface of the leather
  • Should be stored away from humidity and sources of heat
