I’ve never owned boots like these Viberg x Division Road Side Zip Boots* but I imagine the zipper is key. It’s just a hunch, mind you (again, no experience), but it feels right. Also, these are fire and if I had the means I might test that raucous theory.
(*For whatever it’s worth—probably a lot, tbh—I’ve basically only owned ski boots within the footwear subcategory because I’m a boor. Don’t worry though, I make up for it with an obscene number of everything else.)
Handmade in Canada with a two-piece Fango Vitello calf leather upper primed for wild patina, these Destroyer of Worlds feature a Dainite sole, Lampo zipper, Goodyear welt construction, a leather lining, and a leather heel pull.
Size-wise, they were built on Viberg’s 2050 Last and because the little things matter, they have a channeled insole, which certainly sounds cool. Like maybe lead with that when someone inevitably asks about them in public. Don’t explain to them what it means (I’m not going to in this space even though I have words to spare), just lead with it and move on. Like I just did.
Available for $765 exclusively at Division Road.
