The built in pronation definitely happens on other lasts as well, you can see it in pics, and I had it on my 110s. Maybe the only one I've never seen it on is the 310 actually.
 Not really.  To my mind it's one of the main repeat flaws that you see with Vibergs.  Maybe not "flaw" exactly, but an issue.  As you say it makes the boot unbalanced in both look and feel.  Not all are like that, but quite a few; seems to depend perhaps on who is lasting the particular boot..? Actually, at this point I have no Vibergs. I've sold the ones I've had because I could never get the sizing right.  But if there is room in yours for a real arch-support insole it...
    I agree with IIIrd Icon, no need to condition at this point.  Wear them for a year and see how cool they look, and then decide if you want to do anything to them.  Unless of course you get them covered with mud several times and have to wash them off with water, then a little conditioning might be in order.
^^ Wow, seriously misleading to have that Iron Ranger pictured under "Viberg"!   BTW, if anyone is an 11.5 I just noticed that 14 oz in Berlin has that last size remaining in their 1950 Service Boot.  I am not generally a 2030 guy, but always thought this was a nice boot.  It's got the old 8 eyelet configuration (my favorite on Vibergs) and even the "proprietary" rivet!   http://www.14oz.com/1950-service-boot-velours-dark-brown-dainite-sole-10233.html
^^ I think those are pretty cool boots however it plays out.  It does seem to be the case that Context is not always 100% accurate on their boot descriptions. For example, it doesn't look to me like these new Thorogood's are "storm welted" as described:     (Though at $375, that's a nice boot!)
I am a little dubious about how "rare" this horsebutt is, though I am not an expert for sure.  In any case, the boots do seem a bit overpriced to me; but as always we all have our own price points...
^^ beauties. They're SDs right? The toe almost looks like the 461. Really nice.
Right on. It's just that I sometimes DO have trouble getting quality laces that are right for certain boots. But yes, if it can't be done, so be it.  Thanks in any case for you work on all this.  Really appreciated by so many of us, as you know!
 @fok, this is phenomenally great news for the three models that are done!  One question on the Half-Japanese:  I remember us talking at one point about asking for two pairs of laces -- flat black waxed laces as pictured on the inspiration shoe, and some leather laces.  But I can't remember if that made it into the official description.  Is it possible ask for that at this point?  Thanks!
Yeah, I agree that in some some pics (esp those Barrie comparisons) they look nicely chunky and workboot-like; but then in others (like the Viberg 2030 comparisons) they look relatively sleek.  I do think it has to do with the low profile of the vamp and toebox. So in top down shots they tend to look chunkier and in profile sleek.  Of course, both "chunky" and "sleek" are in the eye of the beholder.  My own preference is for a more rounded toe and maybe a bit more of a...
