While the warm weather has arrived, so have the rolling storms of spring and summer. Hence, this week we have two Viberg collaborations that will accommodate all conditions in the street and beyond. It’s important to have brown boots: at least one pair that can act as a go-to. For that special signature piece designed to be in constant rotation, we take a simple formula of baselines that require the item to be staple enough to be worn for many occasions, while being unique enough to spur excitement on the daily. So, with a city state of mind and built for trekking terrains from concrete to crests, we bring you the Ebony Unicorn Scout and Port Vitello Calf Service Boots. Whether you’re looking for patina glory with a smart casual configuration or standing on the corner protecting the stash house, these Division Road Viberg collaborations set themselves apart with a sophisticated luxury, made for a hardened path.
Our city-focused Scout comes in a supremely subtle and stout Ebony Unicorn vegetable re-tanned Scandinavian Elk leather from C.F. Stead that’s been sanded and waxed to a matte finish for remarkable grain character and unmatched performance in the wild. For those looking to standout with slick strides, we’ve paired this hide to the sleek scout boot pattern that comes with an extended counter and pull loop, coolly considered dull nickel eyelets, and a natural leather midsole atop the industrial-meets-street 4014 Vibram Christy sole. A classily urban woodsman sensibility in a refined, contemporary configuration comprises this hyper wearable Scout Boot that will become an all-city all-star.
In what has become one of our most famous make-ups of all time, the Service Boot with the Port Vitello Calf specifically vegetable tanned by Maryam for Viberg with a dark wine-meets-charcoal color profile comes with a natural nubucked finish that enhances complex and layered developments through its journey. To take you from boardroom to the back alley, this military-inspired Service Boot comes with officer level refinements of a brogue and pinked cap toe, vintage leaning small antique brass eyelets, and an antiqued midsole atop a Ridgeway sole that all provide elegance with a gritty disposition. For patina potential and evolved signature styling, this endlessly versatile Service Boot has proven to be an indispensable icon.
