» Everytime I visit the Viberg Factory, I end up noticing something I didn't see on a previous visit. Glen Viberg proudly carries on the day-to-day business within the factory, and is himself a tenured craftsman. You'll often find him behind a sanding machine, on a clicker or inspecting a shoe before it's boxed up for shipping. The entire factory– small and compact, is it's own little family. I thought I would share a collection of detail shots from my last couple of visits.
