Canadian superbootmaker Viberg‘s sample sales are legendary—they’re as much a gathering of the bootnoscenti as a place to buy excellent boots at excellent-er prices.

But there hasn’t been once since May 2019! You know, worldwide pandemic and all. Which makes it all the more exciting that basically out of nowhere, there’s an online Viberg archive sale—important note, NOT a sample sale, this is all first-quality stuff—firing up on Marrkt with 100 pairs of nicely discounted Service Boots.
