As simple as it is stylish, the Viberg Herald Boot Black Horsebutt exudes the confidence that comes with its artisanal craftsmanship, knowing there’s no need extra flash or extraneous design. It’s just a well-made boot. Its bare-bones construction puts an emphasis on the premium materials used, enough to turn heads and remind you that design doesn’t need to be complicated. The upper of the Viberg Herald Boot Black Horsebutt is made using a single piece of leather. The only cut was made to place a zipper on the side to make it simple to slip in and out of the boot. The black horsebutt leather envelops a channeled insole by using the Goodyear Welt method that few other than the skilled craftsmen at Viberg can execute. And it’s a process that takes time – the boots take 10 months to produce.
Using just a single piece of leather for the boots is designed to help maintain their shape. While stitched together pieces may bow, buckle, or swell, the Viberg Herald is better equipped to be worn every day, becoming an heirloom that slowly but surely gets more and more comfortable over the years. With everything that goes into crafting the boot, the stock is extremely limited. Only one purchase per customer is allowed but with a design made to stand the test of time, that’s all you’ll ever need.
