viberg 2040 service boot black veg smooth horsebutt

Viberg Service Boot in Black Veg Smooth Horsebutt: $825

This limited-edition service boot comes on the Viberg 2040 last in a Maryam horsebutt with some serious teacore potential, thanks to the matte black pigment dye on the leather’s surface that will wear away over time.

Division Road x Trickers Stow Boot Navy CXL

Division Road x Tricker’s Stow Boot in Navy CXL: $585

The Tricker’s Stow remains the quintessential country boot, and while Horween’s navy CXL may not have exactly been in fashion when Tricker’s released its icon…damn if it doesn’t work wonderfully. Navy CXL, in our experience, remains less TRULY navy with heavy wear, tending to get a bit lighter in shade and more varied in its finish as the leather’s pull-up reveals itself. Point is: you can beat these silly, or keep them fresh and bold, and be very happy either way.
