Viberg Service Boot - 2030 - Ridgeway - Italian Black Horsebutt
The Italian Black Horsebutt Service Boot is an updated interpretation of Viberg’s original work boot, designed by company founder Edwin Viberg in 1931 and inspired by a standard issue military boot pattern used by several nations during WWII. This version of the Service Boot utilizes a coal Black Italian Horsebutt from Maryam Tannery that has the inherent shell-like qualities of immense structure and durability in a heavy hide form that will mold to the foot while maintaining a semi-dress shine and finish. This leather is vegetable tanned to maintain the natural feel and dramatic, unique grain character of the horsebutt hides, while being single-struck dyed with a natural core that will ebonize through heavy wear to a rich, burnished patina that will correspond with any ensemble. Molded on the ever-popular 2030 Last for a sleek officer-dress silhouette, this boot is completed with a straight cap toe, gun black eyelets, leather pull loop, a black leather midsole atop a British-made Ridgeway sole to provide lug traction in an elegant design. With each piece carefully assembled by exacting Viberg craftsmen using stitchdown construction, this is perfected footwear designed for those looking for a collectible Service Boot that will age and evolve uniquely to the wearer while remaining both timeless and highly utilized within any vintage-inspired modern wardrobe.
