Viberg Hiking Hunter - 2040 - Commando – Tobacco Chamois
The Hiking Hunter Boot is a new 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 rich and warm Tobacco 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. Taking the production further, we utilized the old Viberg banner logo stamp on the quarters, a full grain fully gusseted tongue and a dual roll padded collar for a boot made to perform in the outdoors with a workboot appeal. Next, we combined it with a split eyestay design to accommodate the quarter flex, antique brass eyelets, a natural 360 storm welt and midsole, and a Commando sole for a tonal aesthetic in a resilient build. The boot is formed on the appropriately shaped Munson-based 2040 Last, with an accommodating forefoot, low heel and a slight bump toe. Produced by Viberg's exacting craftsmen using traditional Goodyear welting coupled with channeled insoles, this boot will last a lifetime in the harsh conditions in which it is designed to conquer.
