Part of Canadian boot maker Viberg’s Japanese line, the Scout boot is a stylish, durable workhorse. The boot mixes colours and materials, breaking up the charcoal grays of the rough leather toe and smooth oiled heel with a heavy-grade cream hemp upper. Viberg’s boots tend to be pricey, but for good reason: their manufacturing process is meticulous, comprised of 218 individual steps, all carried out by hand, using the finest materials available. Here’s an in-depth look at their process courtesy of Inventory Magazine. The Scout boot will be available via oki-ni this December.
