Viberg Boondocker - 2055 - Commando - Olive Waxed Flesh
The Olive Waxed Flesh 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 adapted by using the appropriate vintage Service Boot pattern along with adding the original heavy-duty quadruple quarter and triple counter stitching. As an homage to military service men and how they treated their footwear for endurance in the trenches, this exclusive-to-Division Road Boondocker utilizes the Olive Waxed Flesh produced by Horween in a similar process to Chomexcel, though a wax application is used during the tanning process on the roughout side that yields a leather with water-resistant properties designed to patina by revealing the nap of the Natural CXL leather over prolonged use. Further elevating the military archetype, we enlisted the recently developed 2055 Last, which has a lower-profiled silhouette in an accommodating Munson-based fit that provides refinement to the original Boondocker shape. This new-classic boot is perfectly integrated with historically informed heavy-weight natural upper stitching, brass eyelets, a natural leather midsole, and an appropriately commanding Goodyear commando sole. With each piece carefully assembled by exacting Viberg craftsmen using stitchdown construction, this piece is perfect for those looking to channel their inner McQueen for their next Great Escape with a modern and collectable take on a vintage boot.
