We met Luke at our Sample Sale in NYC nearly a year ago. We knew when he walked in that he was wearing our boots but none of us working at the sale could identify them at first glance. After chatting with Luke he revealed that they were the Service Boot in Horween's Natural Essex, which was from a very limited run made exclusively for Viberg.com back in 2013. A photographer and videographer by trade, Luke spends a lot of time walking around the city and decided to see how far he could push the transformation of this natural, vegetable-tanned leather. While many of the purists out there will not approve, we love seeing this approach to our product and the extreme results it can yield. For those of you who have asked how dark a natural leather is capable of turning, Luke may have answered the question.
