Viberg Service Boot - 2040 - Dainite - Natural Dublin
The Natural Dublin 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 many nations as a standard issue military boot during WWII. After a year of working with Viberg to source a Division Road exclusive leather, we found this Natural Dublin from Horween that combines our affinity for workwear durability, glove-like comfort, and dramatic patina potential. The Natural Dublin leather uses the same traditional extracts as Horween’s Cordovan with a high oil and fat content. This nude leather is hand glazed with an aniline finish to retain the hide’s natural feel and surface, then waxed for pull up qualities giving it a golden tan coloration and remarkable grain characteristics. The result is a hearty leather with a supple waxy feel that will develop a robustly resplendent patina. Built on the Munson-based 2040 last, this classic heritage military boot silhouette, with its low heel and slight bump toe, contains detailed refinements including antique brass eyelets and a natural midsole atop a Dainite sole. With each piece carefully assembled by exacting Viberg craftsmen using stitchdown construction, this historically informed Natural Dublin Service Boot artfully finds the balance between contemporary and tradition. It’s the perfect boot for those looking for classic references that transition smoothly into any modern wardrobe, in a unique and rare material.
