^^^ 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?!
Not sure what evo route to take just yet ... but, it seems the Chamois will turn out fabulously__ whatever care/maintenance it's going to get.@BurntPockets__ was chasing for better lighting🤓
