The Leather In Viberg’s Mil-Inspired ‘Herald’ Boot Takes A Year To Make

Jun 16, 2020

Category: Style

When it comes to the world’s most well-regarded artisanal footwear, Viberg is a name that’s become relatively synonymous with style and poise. The transcendental brand has continuously helped to define the genre through its high-end offerings — and now, it’s released the Herald, one of its most commendable boots to-date.

At a glance, the military boot-inspired Herald looks like any other premium offering from the lauded brand. But to understand the shoe’s relevance, we have to dive a bit deeper into its production. What makes this piece of essential footwear so special is its painstaking manufacturing process, which takes place over 10 months, and includes various submersion and drying cycles. Each example takes on a whole-cut, full-grain Horsebutt leather upper, a medial full-length zipper, a Goodyear last, and a single-piece pattern that’s been hand blocked onto hardwood to maintain the shape of the shoe’s last, resulting in the handsome $1,230 model that you see here. Head to Viberg’s website to procure one of your own via its preorder program.

Purchase: $1,230
