Hiker - Gobi Regency Calf
The Hiker, or Model 66, was added to Viberg's range in the early 1970s as mountaineering-inspired version of the Model 105 Logging Boot. It features developments listed from Viberg's industrial products, adapted for outdoor use.
The uppers are constructed from Regency Calf leather produced by British tannery Charles F. Stead & Co.—synonymous with the finest leathers since 1900. This naturally waxy leather is produced using the finest French Calfskin—antiqued by hand and heavily plated for a smooth grain. This fully aniline leather has a rich pull-up, meaning over time this will age beautifully and form a unique patina from your travels together.
Viberg boots are made for a lifetime of wear, so a sole which can be repaired, removed and replaced is paramount to ensure that daily wear doesn't cut that experience short. A French leather sole is attached to the uppers using a natural split welt which ensures serviceability. The English-made Commando rubber outsole is incredibly durable, providing fantastic traction over undulating surfaces for years to come.
