The Viberg Service Boot in Col. 1071 Waxed Horsebutt is a beautiful pair with a ever-changing leather that struggles to decide whether it's a grey or a brown pair. The Maryam Waxed horsebutt (smooth side) has a lot of national variation and scarring, making this an excellent pair for those who love a true natural product. We've gone for a general tonal look throughout with the Antique Brass eyelets and a slight accent tongue with the Black Chromexcel leather. We cap things off with a brogue cap toe with pinking, and a Ridgeway sole for a durable yet relatively comfortable hard-wearing rubber outsole.
