The Boondocker is our interpretation of the standard issue WWII USN Boot, or N-1 Field Shoe. Adapted from our Service Boot pattern and crafted out of an exclusive reproduction of Horween's original Natural Aniline Chromexcel leather. Components such as the corded rubber sole and painted brown eyelets have been specially sourced for this boot and every detail has been considered and kept as true to the original as possible.

Horween’s signature Chromexcel leather uses a proprietary recipe that was developed more than 100 years ago and has remained mostly unchanged to this day. Chromexcel is a full-grain, combination tanned leather with a distinct pull-up and full aniline, hand rubbed finish. It has a soft temper and waxy feel, making it perfectly suited for footwear. We have been using heavyweight Chromexcel leather at Viberg for over a decade and its unmatched versatility has made it a staple in our offerings.
Chromexcel should be regularly wiped down with a damp cloth and buffed with conditioner and a horsehair brush.
For over 85 years we have been handcrafting some of the world’s best footwear. Third generation family owned and operated and proudly made in Canada.
A Munson style last with a wider forefoot and deeper toe box than the 2040. Similar to WWI military issue boots.View Last Guide
