It's getting wet, it's getting cold, it's getting to be about that time when a good, sturdy pair of boots finds their way onto your feet at least five times a week. Viberg has recently made some interesting versions of their classic hikers which could definitely handle that usage. The first comes in a new brown harness leather that's got a great vintage look to it and goes nicely with the classic yellow boot laces and black Vibram Carrarmato sole. The other is a special make-up exclusive to Japan's Barley Harvest Season. While it comes in the familiar chocolate roughout leather, it sit atop an unfamiliar ripple sole. The unexpected change really doesn't alter the overall silhouette or profile of the boot all that much though and offers something unique.

Look: From the Stockroom

01

Words

As more and more fall products continue to arrive at the Stockroom, I thought it would be nice to put together a look from the shop once in awhile. We plan on photographing somebody wearing these looks in the future, but haven't found a model just yet. In the meantime, this outfit is simple, comfortable and ideal for the fall. I did have to throw in some socks from J.Press to complete the look, but everything else is currently available from us.

Words

Our latest addition to the Stockroom comes from a brand in our own backyard. Based in Victoria, B.C. Viberg Boots has been making footwear for over seventy years. The brand has been catching our eye for the last few years thanks to its relationship with a number of high profile Asian brands. We were very excited to get the chance to add one of our own to their long list of custom make-ups, and we couldn't be happier with how it came out. We chose to make the 145 Oxford boot which is a lower version of the iconic 36 Bobcat. The height felt better suited for the time of the year which we took into consideration when deciding on colour/material as well. The rough-out leather in tan is a perfect light colour right now and the texture of the reversed leather is amazing without sacrificing durability. We also left out the fibreglass box toe for a more comfortable feel. The coup de grace for us was swapping out the usual sole unit in favor of a white Vibram Christy. The result is a beautiful boot that's going to age well and last for many many years to come.

Viberg Hiker

While boots can often equal fall for many, the hiker’s time to shine is right about now as the weather starts to turn. Viberg’s version of the boot is one of my favourites. Sure there are cleaner and sleeker options from the likes of Diemme or even Visvim, but the bulky ruggedness of the Viberg staple is more endearing to me. The light brown suede on top of the chocolate sole unit is the ideal hiker combo although a pair of red laces would definitely need to be added. Admittedly I’d probably get them first for the actual outdoors, I could easily find them slipping their way into plenty of urban looks. It’s as simple as fatigue pants and a work shirt.They’re on sale at Superdenim now too.
