Unstructured Boondockers seem to be pretty common.

This would be killer.

Already contacted Cabourn...limited sizing

Can we talk leather? Horse butt!

The 1940s service boot had 5 eyelets, they stopped doing it because it causes an accordion affect.

An accordion effect on what? The uppers?

I love the older, thicker horsehide that Viberg used to use (see the brown one's in meso's wanted add, and the black ones done several years ago for VMC); but most of the recent HH seems to be the thinner fashion-oriented leather, which I am not interested in.  An except is the Context boot, but looks like that leather is not available.

 

So, if we could a thicker, brown, workboot HH, that'd be coolm, but otherwise I am thinking Icy Mocha CXL (or perhaps brown oil tan).

I agree 100% about the horse. If we can't get the thicker HH, I'm not opposed to icy mocha, but why not black bison? That's an amazing leather (I have service boots in tan bison)

I know it's just my personal situation, but I've got a pair of black White's right now that fill the slot for me.  But also, I am not into the texture of Bison I guess...

Just an idea. I just would like something other than CXL. Oil tan would be great. What other heavier options are there?

Latigo would be nice

As far as the 5 eyelets, I agree with meso that it's a little odd but it kind of adds to the distinctive old fashioned flavor of the boot in my eyes. But I know Viberg stopped doing that 1950 service boots style, so it may not even be available.

This boot is fire. I'm in for sure. It's one of my favorite design pics and it provides me something outside of my usual fare.

IIRC the eyelet issue had something to do with eyelets being too far apart from each others. Anyway, at least for me, 5 eyelets have worked very well in my size 8 1940's service boots. A lot easier/faster to get on and off compared to 7 eyelet boondockers and 8 eyelet service boots.

Hi DrapeauNoir,

Thanks for getting in touch. The Viberg Boondocker is on a 2045 last, which is almost the same as the Munson WW2 boot last. It also features an unstructured toe.

I hope this helps,
Cyana

They restock from time to time. They already had these boots in store a year ago.

Ahh my bad, thinking of another stockist. Anybody else interested in 110 boondocker with a structured toe? Preferably commando sole but I'd settle for anything rubber aside from Dainite
