Based in Victoria

Viberg Boot has been hand crafting some of the world's highest quality work boots for over 80 years Founded in 1931 by Ed Viberg, the Canadian company is now in its 3rd generation and is still entirely family owned and operated. Today Ed's son Glen Viberg is still on the factory floor, personally working on every single pair of boots that leaves our doors. Our business began with the goal of crafting the best boot possible and we are proud to have maintained this uncompromising level of quality.

In the last five years Viberg has expanded into a lifestyle market and is carried in some of the most prestigious shops across the globe. We have successfully collaborated with Nigel Cabourn, Inventory Magazine, The Flat Head and more. We continue to innovate and push the boundaries of what can be done by combining modern materials and methods with our own heritage of quality.
