Viberg Halkett Boot - 2030 - Ridgeway - CF Stead Black Waxy Commander
The Viberg Black Waxy Commander Halkett Boot is based on vintage Canadian dress officer boot patterns from the early 20th century, which feature a high and tight quarter with a close lacing, balanced with a clean cap toe and backstay to yield a downtown-appropriate aesthetic crafted with an outdoor build. This limited-production Viberg seasonal release leverages Waxy Commander leather — tanned in the UK by the storied C.F. Stead, known for making some of the finest waxed animal hides and suedes in the world. This suede recipe uses tightened and shrunk double butt calf hides on the flesh side, sanded to a mild nap, and then waxed in the tanning process to yield a refined, casual material with robust performance in the outdoors. This leather was developed to age gracefully and conform to the foot with precision and comfort, with a subtle pull-up patina to create variation in color and texture as the suede reveals through the waxed finish. Formed on the 2030 Last for an elegant dress-officer silhouette, this Halkett is complemented with edgy tonal specifications throughout to include blind eyelets and matte black speed hooks, French binding, a 360-degree black leather storm welt with a pinked edge, and a black leather midsole, all atop a British-made Ridgeway sole to provide grit and traction in a sleek design that commands attention and conquers conditions. Setting the bar even higher, this boot leverages Goodyear welting using traditional techniques coupled with channeled insoles produced by Viberg's exacting craftspeople, resulting in a lifetime piece that will withstand the elements in a distinctive style and evolve for the modern-leaning and vintage-inspired alike.

Viberg sizing is consistent with our old-grade manufacturers, and the 2030 Last is frequently equal to a Tricker’s or White’s for most feet. As a general rule when sizing for Viberg, we suggest you select a half (.5) size down from a common US boot like Red Wing or Alden, or one-and-a-half (1.5) sizes down from a common US sneaker like Nike or New Balance.
