Also, any word on the half-finished 310s that Brett posted briefly on his Instagram a few days ago, which are no longer posted..?  I don't have a pic, but there were cap toe 310s (I believe), with an interesting leather -- sort of texture-y and slightly reddish..
Does anyone happen to know where Viberg gets the brown waxed laces they use, eg, on the Boondocker? They're really nice and waxy, a just a bit thinner than most flat laces, but not too thin..
 Ah yes, I meant individual MTOs, when you could specify all sorts of options.  But perhaps with a SF MTO it might still be possible to get a 310 model and order it in an E width..
Anyone here have experience with a Vibram 2060 sole or the like (full rubber sole) on a pair of semi-dress?  Thinking of trying it out, and White's said they do it.  But just curious how it affected arch support etc?  Would you do it again..?  Any pics..?
 That is my experience, that despite the round toe and overall chunkiness the 310 was narrower than I expected. They do make it in both D and E widths, but now that MTO is over I don't know if the E width will ever be available really.  I have never worn 2030s, but the 310 did feel significantly more narrow than the 110s I had.  Lengthwise, I am not sure about...
 Thanks for the run down.  Sounds like, short of a total resole, the white rubber midsole would have to stay, which I would not be wild about..
 I'd want probably either a new heel-and-sole combo (ideally Cat's Paw half sole or the like) or perhaps, for comfort's sake, a Vibram rubber sole like a 2060.  So, probably the easy option would not apply...  I guess the question is, as you say, how widely available are stitch down resoles.  Also, does Viberg still do such resoles and if so, how much are they costing these days. FYI, I really like the work of Brian the Bootmaker, but he seems not to do stitch down.
I am curious how easy it would be to get these resoled:     They are for sale in my size, and I like everything except the ripple sole.  I know any local cobbler can resole, but I'd want it done right of course, but also done as stitch down.
^^ I think 310s always look  more drastically "sprung" in those close up side pics you sometimes see than they do in real life.  Because you never really see boots from that angle.  Just check out pics of, for example, @meso's copper task boots.  They look incredible IRL.  But, as always, to each his or her own...
