Quick question for the group. I just got some Boondockers on the 2045, and I love them so far (I'll post pics and sizing info this week when I have time), but I'm curious about the toe.   This one is unstructured, and it curves up a bit at the end, which is alright, but I would prefer if it were to lay a bit more flat. Being unstructured, I've read that the toe will collapse over time, but i'm wondering, can I just force it down with my hands now, and manually collapse...
@coldinboston, Great pic, thanks. How do they fit in comparison? I would have to agree with you here, and say the F last is nicer looking. It's just a hint more shapely, and the toe is a touch more refined, which I think makes a big difference.
I have to say, all the recent pictures of the 72 lasted boots have got me thinking that this is a really great last. I would be interested in seeing a pair of Galways (likely rosewood CC) made on the 72 and then compared against the 64. Seems like the 72 would hold it's own.
I know this is a long shot, but does anyone have a pair of lightly used Gianni boots for sale? I would be looking for a size 11.5 most like (my barrie), but would consider a 12.   edit: Or a BNIB pair, which would be preferable, I just know the odds are that are getting slimmer by the day.
quick sizing question, if i'm an 11.5D in the Alden barrie (which is very comfortable), and about a 12E on the brannock, should I be looking at size 11 or 11.5 for the 2045/1035? From what i've read here it seems like I should go 11.5 for most everything, and 12 for the 2030. Do this sound right?
So there is no difference then? Just that Nigel Caborun has vastly better photos on his website? Thanks for this though, appreciated. Hoping to pick a pair up in the next couple of months. I originally thought that the 2030 was the shit for all Vibergs and the end all be all, but now having seen more photos, I think the 2045 has a great profile and top down look to it, and the 1035 and 110 are also awesome.
The cabourn boondockers look awesome. Does anyone know what the difference between them and the .com version is? 2045 for the viberg.com and a difference last for Nigel? Anyone also know if they go up to a size 11.5/12?
I'm wondering if anyone could recommend a bag for me. I'm looking for something roughly the same size as the zippered tote, maybe a bit bigger, preferably with a few more pockets, that has a shoulder strap. I need something that would work for me when i'm cycling. I have a zippered tote now and love it, but it's a hint small for what I want next, and it has no shoulder strap. I was thinking the 24hr bag, or the computer bag, but am not sure. Any recommendations?
If anyone here was the person who beat me to the grey wool shawl collar down vest on eBay, in a size large, and it doesn't work out, send me a PM....you bastard.
Gents,   For your consideration is a pair of lighlty used Pembroke wingtip derbies from C&J, on the 325 last in a size 11.5E UK. These are in their iconic walnut grain leather.   These shoes have been worn about 10-15 times, if I say so conservatively, are have tons of life left. I bought them around six months ago, and truthfully love them, but sadly I sized them wrong. They are a half size too big for me, and this causes them to be a bit of a sloppy fit, so i'm...
