Viberg boots getting made - Cutting and Sewing, Part 1 of 3.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
As some of you may know, I had a really special pair of Viberg Service boots made recently. They were made from Horween Heather Grey leather, roughout, from the only hide in that color at Viberg. I wanted a "sneaker boot", with a thick sole and a rounded toe. Guy, from Viberg, took a thousands of pictures while they were being made. We start at the beginning.


Tag written and dies pulled.


Cutting the vamp liner


Cutting the quarters


Sanding the toe cap


Upper and liner cut


Everything is recorded before moving onto sewing


Skiving edges


Perforating the toe cap


Placing markers for the sewers


Zig-zagging the quarters


Trimming threads


Pounding down the back seam


Sewing in the top band and woven label


Sewing the counters


The quarters are left open for eyeletting


Depending on eyelet choice the machine has to be recalibrated and refilled before each use


Fully closed and ready to be lasted

Is it a normal service for Viberg to take pictures of manufacturing procedure & to send them to their customers when boots or shoes are custom-ordered?

lol. No, it's not normal procedure, but I talked to Guy before this, and we talked about how you guys would enjoy a walk-through of the manufacturing process. These pictures are culled from thousands that Guy took, so you should really thank him. I learn a lot from these pictorials too, btw.

this thread reminds me of the first time I saw pictures of a nude chick - jaw kept dropping with every down scroll

Pretty cool, looking forward to the next part. By the way, I always wondered how burnishing is done - just hours spent rubbing in the polish or is a machine used?

Different generation. We had to turn pages.

I don't know.. But this is something that I could ask Tony Gaziano, who makes an entirely different type of footwear.
