Viberg Service Boot - 2030 - Dainite - Crust Horsehide
The Service Boot is an updated interpretation of Viberg's original work boot, designed by company founder Edwin Viberg in 1931. A similar pattern was used by several nations as a standard issue military boot during WWII. This Crust Horsehide from Horween is a limited batch specifically developed for Viberg, which is a whole hide that's been tanned like Chromexcel, then placed in the Cordovan pits for extreme strengthening by specialty bark blends and hot-stuffed with Horween's recipe of greases, waxes, and oils. This leather remains in its natural un-dyed and unfinished Crust state and each pair of Service Boots is produced from the full hide, thus giving unique and unparalleled variation in grain and color. As this design is all about the exceptional leather, we utilized a plain toe, the popular 2030 last that lends a sleekly-shaped silhouette, and a Dainite sole to create a Viberg style that can fit everyone's collection, whether a first pair or in addition to others. This clean palette will inevitably result in a refined weathered look specific to the wearer, as the Crust Horsehide gradually develops a Shell-like quality in high friction areas to reflect patina never seen before and possibly never again.

For those who are buying Viberg for the first time, be aware that they fit closer to UK rather than US sizes. As a general rule when sizing for Viberg, we suggest you select (1) size down from a common US boot and shoe, or (1.5) sizes down from a US sneaker.
