viberg service boot 2040 oliva tpr horsebutt

Viberg 2040 Service Boot in Oliva TPR Horsebutt: $860

This week’s Viberg Service Boot release features more of this great-looking green TPR Horsebutt from Conceria Maryam. This time around, they’re made with a brogued cap-toe on the 2040 last, which features an obvious-but-not-overwhelming toe bump. Again, that color-matching Ridgeway sole is such a nice touch.

rolling dub trio gleaners japanese black box calf

Rolling Dub Trio Gleaners in Black Box Calf: $775

What we’ve gleaned from the Gleaners is, well, they’re just friggin’ cool. Another new addition to Standard & Strange’s Rolling Dub Trio collection, the Gleaner is a sleek and sexy sidezip with a bit of curved-heeled cowboy flair that stands in stark contrast to the Japanese brand’s chonk-forward offerings like the Coupen and Roots engineer. They’re made with a Japanese black box calf that is dense, yet supple, and feature a 270 flat welt, Vibram 269 western-style soles, and Boots Factory-branded rubber heels. Yeehaw.

Oak Street Bootmakers Camp Moc in Brown Chromexcel: $328

Rounding out Oak Street’s collection of Cortina-soled handsewns, the Camp Moc now features this grippy lug sole from SVIG. While we’d wager that one would rather opt for something like the Camp Boot or the Trail Oxford if they were looking for a handsewn with a high degree of traction, there ain’t nothing wrong with a little chonk, either, and these Camp Mocs deliver it in spades.
