The Mallory Boot
These boots climbed the highest mountain on earth, wrapped around the feet of a fearless man who died trying to accomplish the impossible. You can now own a part of history.
A journey back in history
The year is 1924. A very important but dangerous year for a man named George Malloy. Mr Malloy climbed the world’s highest mountain on earth – Mount Everest and died trying. We will never know if he reached the summit but thanks to the cold environment, he sleeps in an eternal sleep, well preserved under the snow. 70 years after the mountain swallowed Mr. Malloy, mountain climbers found part of his remains and artefacts. With only a few photos of the boots in existence, the designers were forced to do some research on the era and potential manufacturers.
It feels like you are walking the mountain
Their version of the Mallory Boot is a nail down boot built on the vintage mountaineering last. They chose Brown Waxed Flesh leather for the handcut upper and matched the stitching of the pattern as closely as possible. Sourced special materials to recreate unique details from the original boot such as the melton wool tongue, felt midsole and heavy-duty hobnails. Viberg even hand stitched leather patches on the vamp where Mallory's own boots had worn through. This is a unique combination between modern manufacturing and an important piece of history.
