From Viberg in Canada.
These work boots are made by Viberg in British Colombia from exceedingly sturdy Shell Cordovan leather, tanned in Chicago by the old-established firm of Horween. You can recognize their work by the visible traces showing where the black dye was wiped on – by hand! Another feature going back to the 1930s is the long tongue (made of more supple leather) that forms a dust- and
water-resistant zone underneath the metal eyelets and gives additional stability and support to the unlined inside shaft.
