Service Boot®

The Service Boot® is the foundation of our collection and was created by Edwin Viberg, in the 1930s, as a work boot for farmers. 

Ed's original pattern was based on a Canadian Military Parade last and the boots were constructed using "nailed-down" construction, which we still use today in our heavy industrial and logging products.

Reintroduced in 2008, our iconic Stitchdown Service Boot® features a double row of stitching that attaches the upper to the sole. 

Because the upper is turned outward before being attached to the sole, Stitchdown construction causes water and mud to be wicked away from the boot, keeping your feet warm and dry in any conditions.

Service Boot® 2030

Our most popular last is based on a Canadian military boot with a low profile and almond-shaped toe.

Service Boot® 2040

Our 2040 references a vintage 1940s work boot. The fit of this last is semi anatomical meaning the forefront is wider to allow room across the ball of the foot, while the waist and heel narrow to secure the foot and cup the heel.

Service Boot® 1035

The round toe version of our 2030 last. It provides more room in the toe box to accommodate wider feet while still presenting a sleek profile and toe shape.

Service Boot® 310

The Service Boot® built with our sprung toe boot last, which has a distinct boxy toe shape.

Service Boot® Chromexcel®

Chromexcel® is the original pull-up leather; using time-honoured techniques and formulas that were developed nearly 100 years ago.

Service Boot® Shell Cordovan®

Shell Cordovan® is equine leather made from the fibrous, flat connective tissue found in the rump area of the horse. It is an extremely durable, naturally water-resistant leather with a glossy, mirror-like finish. Due to the density of the fibers, Shell Cordovan® has no visible grain and will roll, rather than crease, with wear. It is 100% vegetable-tanned.
