Viberg Service Boot - 2045 - Commando - Black Waxed Flesh
The Black Waxed Flesh 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 countries as a standard issue military boot during WWII. This exclusive-to-Division Road version was designed as an homage to military service men and how they treated their footwear for endurance in the trenches. This boot comes in a Black Waxed Flesh leather produced by Horween in a similar process to Chomexcel, though a wax application is used during the tanning process on the roughout side that yields a leather with water-resistant properties designed to patina by revealing the nap of the Natural CXL leather over prolonged use. Utilizing the 2045 Last gives the service boot pattern a silhouette similar to the original Boondocker, with a classically-shaped work boot look that matches perfectly to antique brass eyelets, a natural midsole, and an historically appropriate commando sole. With each piece carefully assembled by exacting Viberg craftsmen using stitchdown construction, this military-informed Black Waxed Flesh Service Boot is an excellent addition to anyone’s collection, to be used unsparingly from forest to street applications.
