The Service Boot is an updated interpretation of Viberg's original work boot, designed by founder Edwin Viberg in 1931. A similar pattern was used by multiple nations as a standard issue military boot during WWII.
This exclusive Rivet & Hide makeup calls on a Black Oil Tan Roughout from Milwaukee-based, 4th-generation family tannery, Seidel. Their oil tan leathers are fabled for being tough, supple, and specially treated to stand the test of time. Trusted by loggers and firefighters across the the Pacific North West. This Oil Tan Leather is hot-stuffed with oils in the drum before being treated with finishing oils and waxes. It’s a process that lends the leather a deep, rich saturation of colour. Finished flesh-out for a suede-like nap that will take a beating an look all the better for it. Stitchdown construction guarantees the boot a long and resolable life.
Viberg boots are the end result of numerous hand-finished processes - from the tanning of the rare leathers to the free-hand trimming of the soles. They undergo strict quality inspections at Viberg's Victoria workshop and upon arrival here at Rivet & Hide. Any slight variations in colour and texture should therefore be considered a part of the boot’s unique character.
All boots ship with dust bags and a polishing cloth.
NB: The size you order will be the size stamped in the boots. Viberg fits more closely to UK rather than US sizing so please take this into account when making your choice. If you need any assistance with sizing, please reach out to us via email, we are always happy to help.
