^Tnx👍🏼 Mosdef take that into consideration🙏🏻
All these talk about re-soling prodded me to snap a couple of shots of my commandos. Reason why I don't think much about [it] ... Trickers Matrons= 5yrs; Vibergs= 2yrs & unworn [from the NYC sample sale] :: Maltons need a re-heel & Loden Green boots re-heeled last week__ both commando sole stitches holding out valiantly ... not even a single stitch breakage😎 RedBrick Dainite on Trickers Allan @1yr= approx no more than 3mos of wear__ stitches @sides & tips already...
Don't do leather soles ... Can't fit a 2030 ... Dug the Unicorn ... Unicorn on a pair of Trench?!= 🎯 ... but what to do😕 'More of a lace-up type of boothead cuz I'd like to be [batten down &] secured down there, but the Hopper= pure sex. Aching for a Trench, but push comes to shove, 'might consider the Hopper. Btw, how is the thickness/density of the chamois compared to the Viberg cxl?
Agree👊🏽, SD 1/2 for peeps from narrow to medium width ... eg, 2030, Barrie, etc.But, if you're on the wide side, E-EE, peeps have to go the other way.TTS to SU 1/2 on unstructured 2005__ post break in, the toes will collapse & take on the shape of your feet = extra material to flex on the vamp [if needed].

^'Different shape of the lasts might've also been a factor why the original stitch track was not followed
I'm EE, as well.'Can ONLY share from experience__ SU 1/2 from normal Viberg size for unstructured cuz toes will collapse to shape of feet once leather soften up= broken in.
^Dainite x dovetail heels?!
^ 'Got same heel slip issue on the 110 cuz I'm prolly E-EE up front & C-D @heel. So, it depends on the built__ I'm good on lace up service boots, but does not work for me on chukkas, engineers, & derby shoes.
'Just sharing my limited experience re: Sizing& Choosing Appropriate Last:• From a denimhead point of view, I find the 1035 & 2005 lasts as the "Midrise Slim" in the Viberg Lastdom__ they're the middle ground, the confluence of widths, IMO.• 2005 is an [esthetic] alternative for peeps who can't fit a 2030. **If you walk on the wide side, TTS for partially & fully structured; SU 1/2 for unstructured__ cuz leather will collapse to shape of feet @post break in.• Any type of...
