Viberg Chelsea Boot - 2050 - Ridgeway - Walnut Waxed Reverse Horsebutt
The Walnut Waxed Reverse Horsebutt Chelsea Boot is a Victorian era style that has evolved over several centuries and the perfected version from the Viberg collection gives a nod to the 60’s mod scene along with contemporary fashions. After a number of variations in development, acquiring specialty machinery and instituting new techniques in production, Viberg ushers in this exceptional high Chelsea whole cut upper pattern with a formed shaft to set their version apart from all others as a more functional boot for the outdoors while maintaining refinement beyond other renditions. This Division Road exclusive comes in a small batch Walnut Waxed Reverse Horsebutt from Maryam boasting an immense structure with inherent shell qualities and an irregular finish, color, and grain texture as the surface of the hide undulates from a napped flesh to shiny shell. This leather is vegetable tanned to maintain the natural feel of the hides and waxed on the reverse side to create an intense character that's fully exhibited in this single piece upper pattern, making each pair completely unique and prepared to transform with an elegant patina. A 2050 Last developed exclusively for the Chelsea and inspired by a traditional Argentinian riding boot provides an accommodating fit, yet a sophisticated silhouette. This high Chelsea comes with a countryside-ready antiqued leather 360 storm welt and midsole atop a British-made Ridgeway sole to provide lug traction in a discerning design with rugged applications. Each step is carefully executed by Viberg's exacting craftsmen using traditional Goodyear welting coupled with channeled insoles, making the Walnut Waxed Reverse Horsebutt Chelsea a perfect lifetime piece that will withstand the elements in a distinctive style that will evolve for the modern-leaning and vintage-inspired alike.
