This make-up is in Natural Dublin from Horween. The base tannage for Dublin is Horween’s famed Essex tannage. The waxes infused in the Natural Dublin produce a slightly darker surface color that showcase the natural grain. The Natural Dublin leather uses the same traditional extracts as Horween’s Cordovan with a high oil and fat content.

Ed’s original pattern closely resembled the standard issue military boot, common to many Allied countries during WW2. They at Viberg have since reworked the original pattern to find the perfect balance on the foot.
