Vancouver’s Viberg is back for seconds with its Drop Two. The brand’s second seasonal collection channels a natural color palette and “draws inspiration from the environment of the Pacific coast”. As you can imagine, there’s almost too much heat in this drop for one summer.
With natural Japanese cowhide returning to Viberg’s roster, we’d be remiss if we didn’t take a moment to appreciate the Hiker boot in all its glory when rendered in such a hide. With stitchdown construction and a commando lug sole, the Hiker takes inspiration from an exchange of patterns between the brand’s founder Edwin Viberg and Bill Danner. With a distinctly traditional and Northwest outdoor aesthetic, it features a whole cut upper and distinct lace-to-toe system for support, comfort, and ease of access.
If the Hiker isn’t your Viberg vibe, it isn’t the only silhouette to be offered in the Japanese cowhide. You’ve also got the Scout, a rugged logger-boot inspired silhouette with a Vibram Morflex sole; the Roper, a western-style pull-up boot; and of course, Viberg’s staple Service Boot.
Available at Viberg between $690 – $740
