Expanding their repertoire of exotic leathers, Canadian boot company Viberg has added a little down-under flavor with their new Italian Kangaroo Leather Service Boots. We’re assuming Italy is home to the tannery, not the kangaroos. The Service Boot silhouette was first created by Mr. Viberg in the early 20th century and was the model for many WWII standard issue boots.
In addition to their unusual material, this pair features Goodyear welting, a 2030 last, and Dainite soles, as well as calfskin lining and blind eyelets. As it’s not stated whether these are truly undyed, the patina potential remains to be seen. Regardless, Viberg always delivers on the combination of luxury and utility.
Available on the Viberg website for $740.
