In the US & Canada, Viberg Boots size differently so we recommend sizing down 1 full size, or if you have wide feet, 1/2 a size down. Unless noted, all widths are size E.

Worldwide, take your standard size. If you need sizing help, reach out on chat.

Available in a D width, the 2050 Last has an elegant, almond-shaped toe with a high instep to accommodate the laceless pattern of our Chelsea.

We recommended going one size smaller than your Brannock size. If you have wide feet, go 1/2 size smaller than Brannock. The 2050 fits similar in length to our 2030 last.

The Chelsea boot is inspired by a 70’s archival style called the Romeo, which was a pull-on work boot with gore panels. When we redeveloped this model in 2014, we made it with a single-piece upper, presenting a much cleaner pattern without any seams.

Stead’s Kudu is sustainably harvested from wild South African antelope who spend their lives in the bush, and these skins provide a remarkable combination of softness and strength. The wax plate finish accentuates the natural character of this leather.

Small batch, limited run production from our factory in Victoria, BC.

Our single-piece Chelsea Boot was first added to the collection in 1970 and was called the Romeo. The Romeo was Viberg's first laceless boot and was worn by loggers as a convenient, laceless alternative to heavy logging boots when they weren't in camp.


Reintroduced in 2014, the current Chelsea is inspired by a pair of vintage Argentinian riding boots with a single-piece upper, presenting a much cleaner silhouette with no side seams.
