Viberg for Withered Fig Noontime Waterdown Petrolio Chamois RO Boondocker Boots

At last, we have arrived at the final Viberg for Withered Fig special make-up for this season. This would have been our most highly anticipated release for this Spring/Summer, but as (terrible) luck would have it, the make-up specs for our boot were leaked by the guy who cleans up the outsole trimmings after the Viberg factory closes, to Ben at Stitchdown and Neil at Standard & Strange. Those two scoundrels colluded to release a highly similar Viberg Petrolio Chamois Roughout Boondocker (PCROB) – the Midnight Gasfire – and used their outsized influence to receive their delivery a month before ours. The wind was pulled out of our sails (and sales!), the air leaked out of our whoopie cushion, and the butter in our croissants was replaced with margarine. Literally, an actual stick of the stuff made in the 80s.

Viberg Shinki Olive Latigo Horsehide Slipper

We’re kicking off the Spring/Summer Viberg for Withered Fig collection with this Shinki Olive Latigo Horsehide Slipper. Made in a beautiful and rich olive-colored leather and sitting on top of a Black Lactae Hevea sole, these slippers are supremely comfortable and will be one of the easiest Viberg you’ll break-in. We flipped through a few different swatches earlier this year looking for a leather to use on a Viberg Slipper. Once we reached this one and feeling it in hand, we immediately knew that this needed to go on a slipper.
