Viberg Service Boot - 310 - Vibram 705 - Petrol Chamois
The Service Boot in Petrol Chamois is an updated interpretation of Viberg's original work boot, designed by company founder Edwin Viberg in 1931, inspired by a similar pattern used by many nations as a standard issue military boot during WWII. This style features the sleek and subtle Petrol Chamois Leather, a highly oiled, fat liquored, full vegetable re-tanned nubuck produced by Horween to have great flexibility and durability with a natural, soft feel that requires minimal maintenance. The heavy oil content of the Chamois protects against the elements, while simultaneously allowing for a unique patina to develop on its deep navy surface by greying and blackening. This substantial boot utilizes the historic 310 last, sometimes referred to as the 1950’s Service Boot because of its rockabilly upturned toe and motorcycle boot profile. A straight cap toe is applied for proportional refinement, combined with a fully structured toe for protection, gun black eyelets, and a roughout bellows tongue, culminating in textural and tonal interest to the design. Completed with a black stained midsole and heel atop a Vibram 705 Split Sole, the boot reads dark and rugged with a higher-heeled shape unlike anything else. Elegantly assembled by Viberg craftsmen using stitchdown construction, the result is a commanding boot built to part seas and crowds with unmistakable purpose.
