As traditional handcrafted methods are pushed out by large-scale production methods and technology in hope for a more efficient process, it’s refreshing to see brands upholding quality-focused craftsmanship in this day and age. Canadian boot-maker Viberg Boot is a third generation, family-owned company that’s considered one of Canada’s original pillars of heritage brands in the nation’s fashion industry. Having years of experience honing their craft since they opened doors in 1931, the company continues to uphold traditional manufacturing methods of footwear in an effort that is an admirable fusion of refined techniques, elegant design and Canadian heritage. This attention to detail and commitment to providing uncompromising quality is what makes Viberg one of the world’s best producers in premium crafted boots and casual footwear.

The company is headquartered along Canada’s beautiful west coast in Victoria, British Columbia. The famous factory only employs skilled craftsmen/craftswomen in the trade, who vigorously work together like a seamlessly integrated and well-oiled machine. According to their website, there are over 200 steps to making one pair of Viberg boots. Guy Ferguson of Viberg led us through the brief step-by-step process behind every pair of boots that offered us a rare glimpse of a dying art.
