To start the year off with a bang, we bring you a much anticipated collaboration Service Boot Series made for our Division Road Army Officers and Infantry alike. Inspired by the military roots of the Service Boot and sealed with Viberg's original formula, we elevated each style with a specific Horsebutt from one of Italy's best specialty vegetable tanneries and enhanced with corresponding specifications resulting in outstanding utilitarian collectables.
Each style features our favorite leather, Horsebutt, which is the tightest and densest hide portion above the Shell, and possesses the same inherent qualities of structure and durability. These truly glorious hides have a fibrous and varied grain texture, mold to the foot through heavy wear while maintaining form, and develop a dramatic patina with a natural dress finish. Vegetable tanned in a Cordovan recipe, these extraordinary leathers are grain struck dyed with a natural core to burnish authentically, relating the heavy service these boots will provide their officers while commanding attention.
First in line is the Service Boot for the 'General of Goods' that's ready-made for both battalion action or to attend the Officer's Dinner, in a coal Black Horsebutt with a natural core that will ebonize through wear and reveal the hardened grain beneath the surface. Detailed with blacked out specifications for a clean and sleek composition that pairs with the 2030 Last for that dress officer sensibility, and the high traction, elegant lug Ridgeway Sole establishes a boot that will take on any task with fortitude.
Next, we have the style suited for the 'Lively Lieutenant' who's on the front lines of life and stands at attention with a brilliantly grained Chestnut Brown Horsebutt with a natural core that will burnish but not break, from the trenches to top rank. These boots are matched with tonal specifications for a dutiful design that pairs with the accommodative 1035 Last, an unstructured toe box for a sophisticated serviceman form, and an all-purpose Dainite Sole for a style that unassumingly exudes its exclusivity and uniqueness.
Bringing us home is the Service Boot for the 'Masterful Major' that descends from strategic command to hallmark poise in a hard to pin down charcoal-brown cast Port Horsebutt with a natural core and oiled grain that will bronze to declare its clever character through years of conquering any challenge. Coordinated with contrasting specifications for a complex composition, these boots are enhanced with the new 2020 Last in an elegant silhouette with an anatomical framework, atop a stacked Leather Sole for a functional style-piece that will announce its presence with authority.
