Founded in 1931 by Ed Viberg, the Canadian company is now in its 3rd generation and is still entirely family owned and operated. Viberg use traditional manufacturing methods and only the best materials sourced from around the world: brass tacks from England, heavyweight insoles from Spain, Vibram outsoles and the finest upper leathers from renowned tanneries in the USA and Italy. There are over 200 steps that go into producing a pair of Viberg boots and all of them are performed in their own facility by skilled craftspeople.
The Viberg Service Boot is an updated interpretation of the original Viberg work boot, designed by their founder Edwin Viberg in 1931. A similar pattern was used by multiple nations as a standard issue military boot during WWII. This features a Maryam Tanner Horsebutt Leather which will age fantastically as the years go on, on a Ridgeway sole unit. This Boot also features 5 eyelets and 4 hooks.

* The 2030 is a single E width and is based on a Canadian Military Officer's last. It features a low heel and an elongated, almond-shaped toe with a shallow profile. The result is a sleek looking boot that can accommodate most foot shapes. Those with a wider forefoot will want to wear this a half size (.5) larger.
