there was a box calf and a horsebutt run back in the day, one or both were for mr porter. This looks more like horsebooty than calf to me. Nice pair!The boots that I mistakenly thought might be shell arrived.
I have to say I like them more than I expected. Still not 100% sure what the leather is, most likely french calf, possibly horsebutt?
They almost roll more than crease on the vamp which I like.
sadly I think I might have to move them on, they’re a touch snug on the right foot. I often have trouble with my right foot being a bit wider than left. My only other Vibergs 2030 CXL are half a size larger (half down from my US brannock) and fit better.
Here’s how they look with a well worn pair of white oak 501’s.

Thanks for the info. They are really nice and I love the leather.there was a box calf and a horsebutt run back in the day, one or both were for mr porter. This looks more like horsebooty than calf to me. Nice pair!
would have loved to see these in a double leather sole.The Service Boot® is our most iconic product that dates back to 1931. Characterized by an “antique” brown colour with a slight red undertone, Mahogany shell is rich, brown shade that is classic and versatile. This Shell Cordovan boot ships with a Certificate of Authenticity, a set of Viberg...viberg.com
Dunno why they wouldn't do leather sole and stitchdown for me. I definitely thought of the hatchgrain pair, but didn't push the issue. My guess is that they ran into production difficulties making that run, or that it required adjustments of the equipment that they weren't willing to do for one pair.I stand corrected. Those are some nice boots you’ve got. Post pics if you have any.
