How to measure your foot
Measure Your Foot
  • Put a piece of paper on the ground next to a wall
  • Standing firmly on the piece of paper with your heel slightly touching the wall, mark the paper where your foot is the longest (most likely at the tip of your big toe)
  • With a ruler, measure the distance from the wall to the mark on the paper (indicating the longest part of your foot)
  • Take that measurement and match it with a measurement in the “Inches” column in the size chart.
  • Wear socks when measuring your feet
  • Measure your feet at the end of the day, as your feet tend to expand throughout the day
  • Measure both of your feet, as one may be bigger than the other

Product Details
SOFT FAUX FUR LINING
A unique feature to the Viking Boot, this style is lined with comfortable faux fur that will break in and mold to your foot. This boot will keep your feet warm and cozy.
FULL-GRAIN LEATHERS
We only use vegetable-tanned, chromium-free, full-grain leathers. These high quality leathers makes our shoes durable and comfortable. We partner with the best mills and tanneries in the world to produce bold styles using the most unique leathers in the world.
PAINTED BY HAND
Our leathers are painted, stained, and burnished by hand. Creating a unique shoe means not being limited on what we can design…finishing the shoes by hand gives us total freedom in our products and makes every single pair a unique piece of art.
HAND-CUT AND STITCHED
All of our patterns are cut by hand. We do not use molds or lasers to cut the leather. This takes much more time but it allows for only the best sections of a hide to be used.
VIBRAM COMMANDO SOLE
Vibram makes the most renowned rubber sole for Goodyear construction. It is durable, comfortable, and adds an extra layer of water-resistance to your boots. The best boots in the world are often made with a Vibram sole and we knew it was the right choice for this style.
GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION
This shoe is made using the classic Goodyear Welt Construction. This method allows for easy resoling, longevity, and added water-resistance. Goodyear welt construction is the most labor intensive type of shoe construction and the result is a beautiful shoe that will last you a long time.

Rugged Style

Simply put, these boots are made for fowl or fair weather, from Fall through winter. I have them in black and cedar for a choice of against my wardrobe. I did fit a size 13 when my standard is size 12. Keep that in mind.

Easily the coolest shoes I own - or have ever owned.

Soon as I saw them online I fell in love. I purchased them on the spot, almost an impulse buy. I put them on as soon as they arrived and they looked and felt high quality. Took a while to break in, but soon they felt as comfy as any shoe. I wore them to work and began receiving compliments on them immediately - of course I had to let them know where to find them. Customer support was responsive as well; I sent a question about resoling and it was answered right away. You guys got yourself a repeat customer.
