Viberg Hiking Hunter - 2040 - Commando – Mushroom Chamois
The Mushroom Chamois Hiking Hunter Boot is a collaborative development from Viberg and Division Road, produced from an original workboot pattern that debuted in the 1980’s and is still in production today. As a combination between the original pattern and 1960's hiking boots, Brett Viberg interpreted these references with perfected grace to create a new classic that hallmarks the originals. The re-imagined design implements elegant lines in an aggressively proportioned piece appropriate for any outdoor condition and terrain. The boot features the dusty military green Mushroom Chamois Leather: a highly oiled, fat liquored, full vegetable re-tanned nubuck produced by Horween. Providing perfected performance for this hiker, the Chamois leather has a soft and natural matte feel that requires minimal maintenance with considerable flexible elasticity. The heavy oil content of the Chamois protects against the elements and simultaneously allows for a subtle patina to develop on its surface. To hallmark signature collectable Viberg styles of the past with an updated formula to produce a classic with a modern sensibility, we utilized the appropriately shaped and highly functional Munson-based 2040 Last, a split eyestay design to accommodate the quarter flex, a fully gusseted tongue and a dual roll padded collar in Black Oil Tan leather for a boot made to perform in the outdoors with a military appeal. Speaking to the Hunter's utility and design provenance, we used a coordinated contrasting palette for details like gun black eyelets, a black 360 storm welt and leather midsole atop a British-made Commando sole for traction and use in the harsh conditions it was designed to conquer. Produced by Viberg's exacting craftsmen using traditional Goodyear welting coupled with channeled insoles, the Mushroom Chamois Hiking Hunter is a versatile, collectible style piece that communicates its elevated and exclusive nature while recalling an authentic heritage with a timeless aesthetic.
