As a representation of Viberg's storied seasonal collections, we bring you three styles that will bridge the formal and casual modern lifestyles and showcase the evolution of old-world construction techniques combined with modern materials. With a specialty CF Stead waxed suede recipe and traditional Goodyear welting, the Waxy Commander Welted Collection highlights Viberg's commitment to creating footwear that is not only aesthetically captivating but exceptionally durable and functional. The Black Waxy Commander Halkett, Snuff Waxy Commander Chelsea, and Nature Waxy Commander Scout are daily staples created to transition seamlessly from outdoor adventures to urban landscapes, ensuring comfort and style in every step. These boots are designed for the discerning individual who values durability, elevated style, refined patina potential, and the art of shoemaking.
The Black Waxy Commander Halkett Boot is a sophisticated rendition of a military dress officer boot perfect for those seeking a versatile, distinct look in a leather that provides a robust and resilient exterior, ideal for diverse environments.
The Snuff Waxy Commander Chelsea Boot comes in a striking rusty waxed brown hue as a testament to timeless elegance. This outdoor-inspired style ensures durability while offering a distinguished appearance that will age gracefully.
The Nature Waxy Commander Scout Boot comes street-ready in a natural hue — highlighting the clean design with an ode to the outdoor lineage of this iconic pattern — for a robust and refined daily-wear option.
This collection uses Charles F. Stead’s Waxy Commander leather — a specialty suede tannage known for its rugged nature that’s achieved through tightened hides to enhance durability. The leather is treated with wax, making it water-resistant and promoting the development of a rich patina over time, which adds depth and character to each piece.
Viberg's tireless endeavor to restore traditional Goodyear welting is evident in this pack. Coupled with their use of channeled insoles, it creates a higher quality product that will conform to the foot more accurately and provide a more integrated build that is less prone to failure.
With brass nails and tacks, leather-structured toe and heel counters hand-molded to the Last, vegetable-tanned linings, cork fills, wooden shanks, and even improvements in thread types, Viberg has reestablished materials and techniques once lost to produce a premium product.
