Viberg Service Boot - 2030 - Dainite - Honey Tanned Horsehide
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. Designed in collaboration with style maven Jeff Depano and Viberg, we utilized a Honey Tanned Horsehide from a small batch Italian tannery. The hide is lightly packed with oils and greases in a natural vegetable tan recipe using organic honey as the primary dye agent. The honey further acts as a natural conditioner to produce a heavy yet supple horsehide with a distinct golden tan coloration while retaining visible character, resulting in a leather that will patina dramatically. On the popular 2030 last that lends a sleekly-shaped silhouette matched with a brogue cap toe and Dainite sole, this signature Viberg style is a boot that should be in everyone's collection, whether as a first pair or in addition to others. This is a nice match for those looking for a stylistically compatible, golden brown boot that has a rough yet formal aesthetic.

This is a specialty vegetable tanned un-dyed leather that exhibits significant character and inconsistency in color, grain, and texture. This limited run exclusive was cut from the whole hide so each pair will be completely unique and such variation is not considered a flaw.
For those who are buying Viberg for the first time, be aware that they fit closer to UK rather than US sizes. As a general rule when sizing for Viberg, we suggest you select (1) size down from a common US boot and shoe, or (1.5) sizes down from a US sneaker.
