Part of the origin of the name Wilbert comes from the German word beruhmt, which means famous. We have to admit we didn't know this when we named the shoe, but we feel pretty good about it considering the fact that year in and year out this model is our top-selling casual shoe. Popularity can be a hard thing to gauge, but we believe men love this five-eyelet blucher because of its robust look, thanks to the heftiness of the split reverse welt and Othello rubber outsole.
That kind of strong construction makes it perfect for your weekend activities like going to ballpark or grilling in the backyard, but remember the Wilbert didn't become a bestseller by being a one-trick pony. Made on the 1-Last with handsome burnished leather and featuring contrast stitching on the overlay plug that it is sure to play up the other elements of your wardrobe, this shoe doesn't sacrifice beauty for brawn. Add in the comfortable leather wrapped PORON® cushion inner sole and we think you'll want to be a part of the crowd that the Wilbert is always pleasing.
