Thursday boots do not look like Vibergs. This is a false comparison. I'm not talking about the shoes lasting 10 years. They look bad after a month of moderate use because they are poor quality: 1 month review, photos
It's not I who brought the comparison into the thread. I am responding to the comparison. If by "version" you mean as they look when completely new, then perhaps. The quality of the components is poor as shown by a couple reviews and deconstructions. This isn't a class war, these are poor for $200. People should buy Red Wings or Chippewas instead.
