Featured: Chromexcel® Service Boot®

Chromexcel® is a staple leather for the Viberg Service Boot®, known for its unique pull-up, has been produced by Horween for over 100 years. The recipe involves chrome and vegetable tanning and requires 89 individual steps and a minimum of 28 days to complete. The result is an incredibly durable leather with a refined & rugged finish that gets better with age.


Horween Leather Company has been producing its proprietary Chromexcel tannage, famous for its patina, since 1905. The secret to this chrome & vegetable tannage lies in the recipe of wax, oils, and greases infused into the leather that moves with wear to produce a unique pull-up.
