Service Boot 2030 Horween Natural CXL Unstructured Toe
All our Viberg Service Boots are on a single E width, we suggest sizing down one full size from your standard sneaker size. Consider a half size down if you have wide feet.
Viberg's Service Boot is directly based on their original model, first produced in 1931. A similar pattern was also used by multiple nations as a standard issue military boot during WWII, however Viberg's quintessential Service Boot is modeled after the Canadian military's WWII Service Boot pattern.
Our lineup of Chromexcel Viberg Service Boots are custom built for Brooklyn Clothing Co. by Viberg in their Victoria workshop. These are variations on Viberg's core CXL lineup, and with our chosen modifications, they have since become core models for us in the past few years. For versatility purposes, we have chosen to update their core boots with unstructured toes and toe boxes. We sincerely hope that you appreciate and enjoy our custom Viberg makeups for Brooklyn Clothing!
Chromexcel is a hot-stuffed combination tanned leather that goes through a lengthy tanning process at Horween's facility in Chicago, where it spends a month traveling from floor to floor, becoming heavily impregnated wiith grease and wax in the process. The end product is a soft, supple, and flexible hide which is packed full of oils, which gives Chromexcel the excellent pullup that it is known for - when the leather is flexed or bent, the oils are displaced and beautiful tonal highs and lows become visible. CXL only gets better with age, and taking care of the leather is as simple as it gets. Frequent brushing will blend scuffs and bring wicked patina, while the inherent oils in the hide keep it from drying out quickly.
Natural CXL is the lightest possible shade in Horween's CXL lineup, and serves as a perfect canvas for patina and wear. We have sold many of these boots for use in the Stitchdown Patina Thunderdome, and the results are always fantastic. If you are looking for a leather with the most patina potential, look no further.
