Kudu leather comes from a species of wild antelope native to South Africa. Each hide is as unique as the animal it came from. Subtle shades, scars, and striations ensure that no two pairs are alike, save for their expert tannage at the hands of C.F. Stead. This is a strong but supple leather with amazing grain and texture. The boot is built to Viberg’s 1035 last for a comfortable and accommodating fit with a rounded toe. A Ridgeway sole and a weather-beating stitchdown construction both round things off in Viberg’s signature style.
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 Service Boot’s unique character.
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.
