Himel and Viberg Fire Off a Smoothout Ammunition Boot
Sometimes, riffing on a classic works, but sometimes just playing the classics works better. Because Himel Bros. is smart, they tapped Viberg—one of the best at playing the classics—to make an Ammunition Boot that’s pretty much unimpeachable*.
(*I’ve noted before that I don’t wear boots, and that statement holds, but I know a serious one when I see it. Like if this boot was a person, it would own four businesses and a pickup truck that actually hauled things and its kids would be three-sport athletes and its handicap would be a 7 but improving.)
Made in Canada with Horween’s Work Shoe Horse Butt—an “extraordinarily tough” Chromexcel-like leather with a recipe ripped straight from an archived leather that was used on paratrooper boots during WWII—these were built on the Munson last and feature stitchdown construction, AA eyelets, a RidgeWay sole and a slightly flattened toebox that references the archived boots this one borrows from.
Available for $795 at Himel Bros.
