Ten years ago, I graduated from my alma mater, Mt. Carmel High School (shoutout to my favorite English teachers, Ms. Le, and Mr. Pacilio). Coincidentally, Canadian retailer Haven first opened up their doors also ten years ago. In celebration of Haven’s double digit year existence (and maybe also my ascendance into higher education), they’ve teamed up with Viberg for two pairs of boots made exclusive to them.
The Service Boot you know and love gets a makeover, all dolled up for the anniversary. The duo have given it a Vibram Gloxy-cut Vi-lite sole and easy access M8 side zips from Riri. Built on Viberg’s usual 2030 last, the fun starts with natural, undyed kangaroo leather. The real fun is the fact that they’ve overdyed the entire boot – not just the leather. One batch is overdyed black while the other is overdyed in indigo. The color will likely transfer a bit to lighter surfaces, so you might want to take off your shoes before entering a light-carpeted areas. At least the side zips make it easier to do that.
Celebrate both of our 10-year anniversaries for $861 at Haven.
