Four Horsemen x Viberg Service Boot

Viberg Boot has been hand crafting some of the highest quality footwear in the world for the last 80 years. With a rich history of supplying the local logging industry, it has only been in recent years that Viberg has branched out into the world of menswear. New silhouettes and non-traditional materials have been utilized to great success in a series of collaborations mostly for the Japanese market.

With Four Horsemen being located less than five blocks from the Viberg all-in-one retail, office, and factory floor it was only a matter of time before a collaborative project of our own was in the works. We have been in talks with Brett Viberg and his father Glen for over 10 months and from the very beginning we knew we wanted to make something that would be easily wearable for ourselves and our customers. When Brett mentioned he had plans for a new Service Boot on a slimmer last, directly inspired by a pair of boots his grandfather had made over 50 years prior, our decision was made.

The Four Horsemen x Viberg Service Boot features an upper made entirely of black Buffalo leather. The Vamp and Counter are done in roughout which has a nappy, suede texture, while the Quarters are done in the smooth side which shows off the matte finish and unique texture of the Buffalo. The contrast leather sole and stacked heel are accented by gunmetal eyelets and copper coloured thread. All of this is housed on a thin Vibram #269 sole and a deadstock Cat's Paw Heel. The toe is intentionally unstructured to allow for a slim profile and a shorter break-in period. The Four Horsemen x Viberg Service Boot is a boot that will last you a life time and truly get better with every wear.

The Four Horsemen x Viberg Service Boot will be available for purchase on Monday, Nov. 8th.
