Thanks, guys. Wore them this evening at home and no regrets.
@Skell6009, they're the first Vibergs I own that are leather and not Dainite. From a totally aesthetic standpoint, I prefer leather, but I understand the utility of Dainite or commando type soles. Viberg leather soles look very high quality.
@jimanchower, congrats. Looking forward to seeing pics.
That's what happened when I had something shipped to me via DHL (from Turkey). I escaped duty but had to pay handling/brokerage fees. What I was wondering was whether FedEx charges handling/brokerage fees for shipments from Canada. However, I will obviously find out and I'm not going to refuse the boots regardless. Just curious and wondering what to expect.
