Hey guys! If you want boots that’ll turn heads, you can find
them right here in Victoria at Viberg Boots.
Since 1931, the Viberg family has been making top-
quality men’s footwear, manufactured using traditional
methods and the world’s best materials: brass tacks
from England, heavyweight insoles from Spain, Vibram
outsoles, Swiss hobnails, and the finest upper leathers from
renowned tanneries in the USA and Italy.
Brothers Jason and Brett Viberg followed their father
Glen, who followed his father Ed, the founder. Jason says
some of today’s most popular styles are based on patterns
grandfather Ed designed, but with a modern twist and
clean lines that will keep them in style for years to come.
They make about 30 pairs of boots a day, and while they
do have a small retail outlet attached to the shop, 90 per
cent are sold online.
