In the 1970's our founder Edwin Viberg traded boot patterns with Bill Danner. In exchange for one of our classic work boots we received this hiking boot which we have produced ever since. Our Hiker features a whole-cut upper making it naturally waterproof and a distinct lace-to-toe system for support and easy access.

Britain's C.F. Stead has been producing some of the finest leathers in the world for over a century. Using their Classic Calf base tannage, Oiled Calf is vegetable re-tanned and finished with a natural wax application giving it a soft temper and distinct pull-up characteristic. Comfortable out of the box and durable enough for everyday wear, the smooth full grain Oiled Calf is a slightly more casual option due to the visible grain and high wax content that comes to the surface with wear.
Use our rough brush and venetian cream to keep the leather soft and shiny. View our step-by-step guide for all leathers here.
