The Service Boot in Derby Brown Nut will be available tomorrow at noon on viberg.com. It's plain toe on the 2040 last with a commando sole. Price is $680 (USD). This is a really nice casual brown boot. The leather has a ton of character and will age beautifully. It's a great option for those who don't like the way CXL creases and scratches so easily.
We won't be offering one any time soon, but that's exactly what Leffot had and i'm assuming they will restock at some point.Yeah, that's a confusing one. They basically ordered an Icy Mocha Service Boot w/ Boondocker specs. Not technically the Boondocker, but i can see why they called it that.
Just a quick note on the Boondocker. That name actually refers to a very specific make up of our Service Boot. It was originally a project between Brett Viberg and Nick Horween. The idea was to offer up an interpretation of the original WWII Boondocker using the exact same leather that Horween had originally supplied for the boot in the 1940s. There is a blog post on the Horween site about this here: http://horween.com/history/boondockers/
Besides the specific leather...
Practically speaking they are pretty much identical. It might even be the exact same mould. We stocked Itshide before Dainite, so we've had both at the factory for a while now. The reason the most recent inventory has had Itshide is because we are waiting on a restock from Dainite. Honestly though they are totally interchangeable.
It's just too close to the Natural. The colours always vary a shade or two across batches and occasionally we'd end up with Natural CXL that was almost indistinguishable from Icy Mocha. Stocking Natural, Brown, Colour 8 and Black just gives us a better, more defined, range of colours.
It's going to be exactly the same as the Icy Mocha Service Boot we had on viberg.com prior. We just aren't stocking Icy Mocha CXL anymore, so we switched it to Brown (same colour as above). It has 7 brass eyelets and a straight toe cap.
