.... Or have the lower shaft stretched by your local cobbler.
^^^ Quite a few Engineer boot options out there for every1's taste & style. However, IMO, 2005 looks best w/ lower toe volume & profile ... Agree w/ FOK, if ever, partial @the most. Have been on the hunt for years on a build that can work on me ... Or at least, convince myself that'll work for me. Other than the Hopper, the only pair I've seriously considered ever__ RoadChamps, w/c tho' different in construction, are very similar in aesthetic/style/sensibility, I...
🎯 Exactly!What would I do if i was Mr. Viberg?I'd keep pushing the new stuff. As for demands for the stitchdown, let the "stocklist" peeps take on & consolidate the orders & then we'll make them ... Why compete w/ shops that're selling my stuff?!Don't know the overwhelming perception @forums like SF, that Viberg is illogically decreasing stitchdown production cuz they really aren't ... They're just not selling them directly ... & if there's ever any demand that the...
.Mini ripple, cobbler will just peel off the outermost sole (ripples) & glue the mini ripple replacement.If replacing w/ like, Vibram 2021 or Gloxicut, the whole rubber sole units have to be lopped off, up to the white midsole [w/c are sewn to the Stitchdown leather midsole]__ then the 2021 or Gloxicut full soles are cemented to the midsoles = @round $80 to replace.If u want the outer soles (eg, Dainite, Vibram 700, GY Commando, Dr. Sole Cords, etc.) stitched to the...
👆🏼Right, unstructured low volume/profile toeboxes make for collapsed wrinkly scuffed toes ... evo is so sexy & nonchalant😎
Already know [these] are not for every1, but hey .... whatevs🤘🏼 Viberg "Licorice" Bison MocToe Chukka: Version 2.0 Voila! Like new again. The original honey/olive wasn't evo-ing very well, IMO. Plan was to DIY dye them to light-mid brown__ instead, they turned much darker w/ red undertone after a double coat. They're almost black & opaque, but will lighten up a bit & show more texture, as the dye thins out from brushing & wear ... as a result, the reddish undertone...
🤔💭Don't understand peeps expectation, sometimes ... Even @Viberg thread. Apparently, peeps want a low profile, soft on the stride, got grip & yet, somehow, indestructible.Just like tire options for your car, u choose according to how u want them to perform. Dainite is lower & softer__ pure rubber, so wears out faster. Composite/Nitrile, like GY Commando maybe be harder__ honestly, I don't even feel the "big" difference when walking, but can run circles around Dainite,...
More boot porn: the HOPPER @direct light
IMO, the Roadchamp & Viberg on 2005 [partial/unstructured] are the 🔥sexiest engineer boots, ever ...
How about the width?! Narrower or wider than 4497 ... 4444?!
