I'm interested in any IRL feedback as well. For the longest time, I was never interested in non-leather soles other than Dainite or commando. Now, ripple soles interest me and I wouldn't mind some Vibergs on the 2060 sole, just to change things up a bit and add some variety. They seem like they'd be lighter and more comfortable, but that's just a guess. I think they'd be a good boot for travel.
