Natural Chromexcel is one of Horween's most popular leathers. It's a waxy leather with a great pull-up quality. Each piece is so unique with varying tones, but pretty quickly the boots develop a uniformity of tone and age beautifully. The boots will last for ever due to a stitchdown construction that allows the boots to be resoled as many times as needed.
All boots ship with alternate laces, dust bags, a polishing cloth and a 1oz bottle of Venetian Cream or Viberg Leather Preservative.
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.
