Viberg Service Boot - 1035 - Vibram 2060 - Walnut Oil Tan
The Service Boot in Walnut Oil Tan is an updated interpretation of Viberg's original work boot, designed by company founder Edwin Viberg in 1931. A similar pattern was used by several countries as a standard issue military boot during WWII. This full-grain leather is from the storied SB Foot, which has specialized in Oil Tans for over a century. A high content of oil and wax is impregnated into the hide to yield robust protection against industrial work environments and outdoor elements. This Oil-Tan recipe has a nice feel with a limited finish to reveal subtle grain patterns and marks for a more natural yet extremely durable leather. To highlight this exceptional material, we utilized a plain and unstructured toe to maintain sleekness with a lower profile on the 1035 last that provides an accommodating fit. Created to be a fully functioning work boot for the urban journeyman, we included a leather heel pull with a separate counter, a bellows tongue, and the tonal specifications of antique brass eyelets, a natural midsole, and the sand colored Vibram 2060 sole. Altogether, these details yield a clean palette that inevitably will result in a refined, weathered look specific to its travels. You will find each piece elegantly assembled by Viberg craftsmen using stitchdown construction, giving the boot functionality paired with a work-ready leather for maximum patina payoff.
