Viberg Officer Boot - 2055 - Commando - Shinki Olive Latigo Horsehide
The Viberg x Division Road Olive Latigo Horsehide Officer Boot is based on the combination of vintage British dress and officer boot patterns from the early 20th century, which features a high quarter with a back stay over counter construction to yield a downtown appropriate aesthetic crafted with an outdoor build. This military dress iteration of our exclusive pattern adaptations on the Brogue Boot utilizes a limited batch, full-weight vegetable-tanned Latigo Horsehide from the venerable Shinki Tannery in Japan that specializes in hand finished horse hides. This brightly drum dyed Horsehide has been mimosa bark tanned and air dried, causing the leather to become more dense while accentuating the uncorrected grain, and is then hand oiled and waxed through the glazing and finishing process to intensify the natural characteristics of the leather and provide flexibility. Further elevating the military archetype in this cleanly designed style, we utilized the recently developed 2055 Last, which has a lower-profiled silhouette in an accommodating Munson-based fit that provides sophistication to an original field boot form. This new collectable classic boot is enhanced with a cap toe and French binding and refined with complementary brass eyelets and a natural leather 360 storm welt and midsole atop a British-made Goodyear Commando sole to provide lug traction in a tactical design for officers on patrol. Setting the bar even higher, this boot leverages Goodyear welting using traditional techniques coupled with channeled insoles produced by Viberg's exacting craftsmen, resulting in a piece that will outlast the enemy through every season and conflict, while looking as good as any 'General of Gear' should and could.
