Viberg Service Boot - 2030 - Christy - Natural CXL Roughout
The Service Boot 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 nations as a standard issue military boot during WWII. Natural Chromexcel Roughout is, more accurately, the Marine Field tannage that Horween produced for Service Boots used by the US Military during World War II for the conflicts in North Africa and the Pacific. This particular batch of Chromexcel is specifically designed to be used flesh-side out in order to remain durable through hard use, have a consistent nap that can be treated by soldiers based on conditions, and hold its form yet remain light on foot. It was engineered, furthermore, so the inside has a finished quality that enables the boot to be unlined so as to cut down weight yet have comfort against the foot, and for soldiers to empty sand or debris with ease. These signature Division Road Vibergs are characterized by the use of this refined and historical sand-colored roughout on the popular 2030 last, creating a streamlined silhouette matched with a clean cap toe and aggressive Vibram Christy sole, a natural midsole and stitchdown construction. Whether a first pair or in addition to others, this is a boot that should be in everyone's collection as an homage to a footwear style that commands attention and is equally appropriate on the street, in the woods, or if necessary, the battlefield.
