Service Boot - Essex Chestnut Cowhide - 310


Free USA Shipping on orders over $100


The stitchdown Service Boot was the very first boot made by Viberg, and remains their top-seller to this day. Stitchdown construction makes for a bombproof boot that can handle as many resoles as you want to throw at it. Even if you somehow wear through the outsole without noticing, the midsole is an integral part of the boot, and will keep the whole thing together while you seek out a cobbler.

These are built on the rare and robust 310 last. This last is chunky with a sprung toe, raised heel, and a generous fit. The raised heel in combination with the toe helps to create a natural "rocking" motion as you walk, keeping them comfortable even during extended wear.

The upper is an Essex Chestnut cowhide, a fully vegetable tanned leather that will darken and patina with wear, on a Dainite sole. There is some variation in color, tone, and grain as is common with light colored vegetable tanned leathers; these natural discrepancies will disappear into the wear of the boot over time. 7 antique brass eyelets highlight the tones of the leather while holding the laces in place.

Take one size smaller than your Brannock size. If you have wide feet, take 1/2 size smaller than Brannock.
