Viberg Chelsea Boot - 2050 - Dainite - Tan Washed Horsehide
The Chelsea Boot is a Victorian era style that has evolved over several centuries and is now a perfected version new to the Viberg collection, where it gives a nod to the 60’s mod scene and contemporary fashions. After a number of variations in development, acquiring specialty machinery and instituting new techniques in production, Viberg brings this exceptional boot with a whole cut upper and a formed shaft to set their version apart from all others. To hallmark the British culture inspiration of the style, we utilized an Italian Tan Washed Horsehide that’s vegetable tanned to maintain the natural feel and character of the leather. It's then tumbled and rinsed for more flexibility while enhancing the deep golden brown coloration and grain characteristics. Designed for those looking to embrace irregularity, each pair is cut from the full hide of this limited batch leather to be completely unique in color, texture, and visual qualities. The 2050 last developed exclusively for the Chelsea and inspired by a traditional Argentinian riding boot provides an accommodating fit yet a sophisticated silhouette. Setting the bar even higher, this boot leverages Goodyear welting using traditional techniques coupled with channeled insoles produced by Viberg’s exacting craftsman, and combined with a natural flat welt and midsole on a Dainite sole to form a Chelsea that will withstand the elements in a distinctive style, suitable for the modern-leaning and vintage-inspired alike. As a nod to the Mod, an era of original flair, the unmatched nature of this limited run embraces the serendipity of every journey and the ways our travels leave us changed forever.
