Viberg High Chelsea Boot - 2050 - Commando - Natural Toscanello Horsebutt
The High 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 Chelsea with a whole cut upper and a formed shaft in a 1" higher version for a more functional boot for the outdoors while maintaining refinement that is fairly evolved beyond other renditions. To hallmark the British culture that inspired the style, we utilized an undyed Italian Toscanello Horsebutt from Maryam with an immense structure and inherent shell-like qualities with an irregular and matte finish. This leather is vegetable tanned to maintain the natural feel and uniqueness of the hides while enhancing the dark tan coloration that will match any ensemble and condition whilst developing an unmatched rich 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 an outdoor-ready natural leather 360 storm welt and midsole atop a British made Goodyear Commando sole to provide lug traction in a ruggedly refined design that leverages Goodyear welting using traditional techniques coupled with channeled insoles. Each step is carefully executed by exacting Viberg craftsmen, making it a perfect lifetime piece for those looking for a Chelsea that will withstand the elements in a distinctive style that will evolve for the modern-leaning and vintage-inspired alike.

This is a specialty un-dyed leather that exhibits significant character and inconsistency in color, grain, and texture. Each pair will be completely unique and such variation is not considered a flaw.
