Viberg x Division Road Boondocker in Olive Waxed Flesh: $735

Built on Viberg’s Munson-y 2055 last (Viberg’s best last if you need a wide forefoot), the burly olive waxed flesh pairs quite well with Viberg’s Boondocker pattern. Extra burly-ness courtesy of the commando soles. Division Road does it again.

White’s Boots x Brooklyn Clothing Co. MP-M1 in Dark Chocolate Latigo Roughout: ~$616

Vancouver’s Brooklyn Clothing Co. is bringing some White’s heat with three exclusive makeups. First up, these handsome MP boots in dark chocolate latigo roughout. I’m digging the black eyelets and hooks.

grant stone plain toe blucher earth waxed commander

Grant Stone Plain Toe Blucher in Earth Waxed Commander: $288

GS is chonking things out for the impending fall and winter, putting their classic PTB pattern on the same lugged sole—which is quite grippy and whose inset lugs make for a chiller overall (if not quite “dressy”) profile. Combined with the hardy earth waxed Commander leather from C.F. Stead, these things are ready to rock in basically any conditions.

John Lofrgren Chelsea Boots - Timber CXL

John Lofgren Chelsea in Timber Chromexcel: $825

Earlier this week, our friends at (Patina Thunderdome presenting sponsor!) Standard & Strange released John Lofgren’s first take on the classic Chelsea pattern. These are built on JL’s 110 last, the same one used for their Engineers. It’s available in some lovely Timber CXL…

viberg scout boot natural dublin

Viberg Scout Boot in Natural Dublin: $710

I think it’s been a minute since we saw a Scout boot drop on Viberg.com. Lo and behold, it’s back again this week in three flavors. All of these models are built on the 2030 last with ultra-lightweight (but somehow crazy durable) Vibram Morflex wedge soles. There’s this natural Dublin…

wesco x ship john john derroll engineer boot

Wesco x Ship John “John Derroll” Boss Boot: $598 (Pre-Order)

Always on-point Portland (the Oregon one) everything-good shop Ship John has buddied up with (also Patina Thunderdome presenting sponsor!) Wesco to create a new iteration of the 7500 Boss engineer boot. The only difference between this and the stock 7500 is that the British tan Domane leather has been flipped inside-out. A simple twist, yet an effective one.
