For his new Spring/Summer 2012 collection, British designer Nigel Cabourn joined Viberg to reinvision the Service Boot, one of the great classics of the Canadian brand. It features a reverse leather shell with a heavily distressed look throughout the cap toe and sides of the upper. It’s a great look and one that adds to the already versatile silhouette of the Service Boot. The pair will soon be available exclusively at Barneys in the US. (via Glltn)
Here’s a look at Viberg’s iconic #145 Oxford in two-tone suede finish. It features vintage tan suede quarters and mocha suede vamp & counter, topped off with a smooth brown leather tongue. Viberg is now in its third generation and the family owned business continues to amaze us with these impeccably crafted pieces of footwear. Don’t expect that to stop anytime soon.
Superdenim and Viberg have teamed up to create a fine selection of Oxfords for the F/W 2011 season. The 145 Oxford is available in four different finishes, each with their own unique details. Our favorite happens to be the tan rough out suede variety shown above (shots of the other finishes below). It features a deconstructed toe and an upper that’s made from an incredible rough out suede leather. The wedge sole works well with the tan shell and the brown details in the stitching, laces really stand out. Each boot is hand made in the Viberg factory in Victoria, Canada.
4 Horsemen Supplies teams up once again with British Columbia’s Viberg for another solid offering. This time, they’ve opted for a Saddle Oxford based on Viberg’s 145 Oxford. The two-tone upper and hand perforated quarters really set this one apart with the vamp and counter finished in Ice Mocha Chrome Excel, and the quarters in Vintage Tan.
Last week, we got a sneak peek at an epic collaboration between Canada-based VIBERG Boots and New York retailer Leffot. The result is this hiker boot available in two finishes, the first being a “Peanut Bullhide” leather and the other a Chromexcel leather shell in “Ink Blue Reverse”. For the outdoorsman, this boot is solid offering from a family-owned company that’s been doing it right for three generations. “From grading the hides to polishing the finished product and all the 218 steps in between they produce simply the toughest boots made!” If that’s not dedication, I don’t know what is.
Both colorways are available now at Leffot for $675 each.
Canada-based Four Horsemen have teamed up to make a boot with Viberg Boots, whom you might remember from their recent Leffot collaboration. Brett Viberg and his father Glen had been looking to make a new Service Boot on a slimmer last, directly inspired by a pair of boots Brett’s grandfather had made over 50 years prior. The Four Horsemen x Viberg Service Boot is probably one of the most thought out boots we’ve seen in quite sometime. The details are immense and it all begins with the black Buffalo leather which makes up the entire upper of the boot. The vamp and counter are done in roughout which is more of a suede texture, while the quarters are done in the smooth side, giving it a matte finish. The contrast leather sole and stacked heel are accented by gunmetal eyelets and copper coloured thread. This is all dropped atop a Vibram sole and a deadstock Cat’s Paw Heel.
The Four Horsemen x Viberg boot will be available for purchase starting today. (via The Bengal Stripe)
New York’s Leffot has teamed up with VIBERG of British Columbia for this hiker in Horween Ink Blue Reversed Chromexcel. The Canadian-based shoemaker has been family owned and operated since its inception back 1931 and the experience and dedication show in the craftsmanship.
As for this specific hiker boot, look for it to drop exclusively at Leffot sometime this week.
