I was surprised when I won the charity auction for a pair of Viberg boots from Notre.  I just briefly glanced through what Notre has since I hadn't anticipated purchasing boots in the near term.  So if anyone has any recommendations of any pair that is particularly interesting to you, I'll gladly take any input.  I already have 5 Viberg boots and I know it has a lot to do with what I already have, but I'm just looking for ideas.

I guess I understand the frenzy created by the Viberg IG with a zippered boot.  But I don't really see the need to call it the end of the world.  As Ryden says, companies need to push boundaries, and those boundaries might not fit in with one's particular aesthetics.  I personally would be interested in a zippered Viberg, but really only because it'd be made by Viberg.  It would allow me to wear my Vibergs when traveling, which I do not do now.   As an aside, I took a...
