After countless special projects with Nike and 5 years of research, Viberg is broadening their scope as a footwear brand while still maintaining nearly 90 years of craftsmanship.
After the release of their Slipper, many wondered about the direction and focus of this proudly Canadian boot brand with a deep history in workwear. Those doubts quickly passed as many stores began to collaborate, ours included, on various special makeups. The introduction of the Sneaker should be proof that Viberg is headed in the right direction when stepping outside the conventions of the Americana aesthetic.
The same handmade attention to detail that we’ve come to know is evident and with the vast array of new brands and styles on the market, Viberg makes a clear case as a top contender for best made. Using the a Vibram Sphike RGS Sole, these Horsehide leather sneakers offer support and comfort not found in many brands. While similar to other luxury sneaker in its minimal design, the lack of any branding is a welcomed approach for those looking for something subtle. Utilizing the 1003 Last, the fit and sizing of their Sneaker is similar to the 2030 for those wondering about the profile of such a “clunky” trainer. With a removable leather and foam insert, the same care and treatment applied to your boots can be carried over using either Castile Soap or Shoe Cream.
We’re happy to be one of the few retailers launching the 3rd release in the Sneaker lineup. We can’t wait to try our hand at our own special makeup come summer. Also, stayed tuned for some exciting regarding our Special Viberg Event in the New Year!
The Sneaker releases 11.23 at 3PM EST.
