Viberg Boondocker - 2030 - Dr. Sole Cord - Black Oil Tan Roughout
The Black Oil Tan Roughout Boondocker is based on a Viberg interpretation of the standard issue WWII US Navy Boot commonly known as the N-1 Field Shoe, similar to the 1943 US Army Type III Boot. Using the appropriate Service Boot pattern, Viberg recreated these Boondockers true to the original with heavy-duty quadruple quarter and triple counter stitching, a raw corded sole, and tonal eyelets. Designed in collaboration with Viberg, we re-imagined this classic with a full-grain Black Oil Tan produced by Seidel Tannery. This leather features a high content of oil and wax impregnated into the hide for protection against water and dirt on the Roughout side and is left un-brushed as an homage to vintage military boots. The end result is a sturdy and consistent surface that will have a pronounced nap revealed in high wear areas. Further elevating the archetype, we used the ever-popular 2030 last for a sleek silhouette. Accents include an exclusive tonal grey heavy-weight upper thread combined with gunmetal eyelets and a natural midsole. And from Dr. Sole, we end with an oil resistant Raw Cord Sole with traction yielding ice plugs that pulls the contrasting and tonal palette variations together into an historically informed and refreshed design. With each piece elegantly assembled by exacting Viberg craftsmen, these boots are perfect for those looking to channel their inner McQueen for their next Great Escape, or to brave the Boon Docks with a modern take on a vintage boot.
