viberg standard strange service boot saddle tan chromepak

Viberg x Standard & Strange Service Boot in Saddle Tan Chromepak: $730

A very fine special makeup for S&S right here. These boots are built with Horween’s heavy-duty Chromepak leather on Viberg’s mini-chonk 2040 last, with a stitchdown construction on Ridgeway soles. They debuted about a week ago, and I’m surprised to see there are still ample pairs in stock. Be sure to check out some of the other seasonal Viberg makeups S&S just added, too.

Alden x Leffot Military Derby: $595 (Pre-Order)

Viberg Service Boot in Mahogany Hatchgrain Shell Cordovan: $1450 (Pre-Order)

Viberg takes another swing at some hatchgrain shell in this classic mahogany shade, which looks quite nice with the vintage brass hardware here. Built on the 2030 last with a stitchdown construction on some Dainite rubber soles.

alden ealdwine cary indy

Alden x Ealdwine “Cary” Indy Boot: $645 (Pre-Order)

With Alden’s iconic Trubalance last paired with some brown Chromexcel—and a 360 flat welt, commando soles, and shiny brass hardware to boot—I don’t think you can go wrong with these Indys.

nicks boots aldert strider

Nicks Boots Aldert Strider: $485+

The four-inch height of the Aldert Strider puts it somewhere in the realm of a chukka boot, but with that chunky, overbuilt style characteristic of Nicks Boots. Built on the HNW last with a wedge sole, the Aldert Strider is available to be made in any of the heavy-duty leathers at Nicks.

truman boot co olive waxed flesh

Truman Boot Co. Olive Waxed Flesh MTO: $440+

This olive waxed flesh oozes character as it wears in, and it’s now available at Truman Boot Co. in their final MTO offering of 2021. Available either as a service boot, or in the taller Upland model.

It comes but once a year: Division Road’s annual Boxing Day sale is nearly upon us. The single day each year that everything in DR’s collection—including footwear—goes on sale.
