^^^Wearing these right now and couldn't be happier, even got each boot sized differently due to Fok's hard work, so they fit each foot perfectly.
The real problem lies in the fact that uniform sizing is a fiction that continues to perpetuate. There is no such thing as 'US' and 'UK' sizing in terms of a standard, quantifiable measurement. Especially today, there are only brand sizes as reliable indicators of how a shoe will fit for you foot. A size 10 in Nike is not the same as a size 10 in Adidas, regardless of whether they're both UK/US, and so on. So, as rough as it is, we make comparisons such as: an Alden...
Good God man, how much clearer can I be.Whatever size is printed on your Alden Barrie, order that exact same size for your Vibergs.E.g. - If printed on the inside of your Alden boot is '10', order a 10 for your Vibergs. Forget any notions of conversion.Simply order exactly the same number.
Match means match, semantically it becomes pretty useless otherwise.To make it as basic as possible: whatever NUMBER your Alden Barrie is, go for exactly that in Viberg. 10=10, and so on.Depends on the company, Barneys have been known to list an American interpretation of Viberg's sizing, whilst others will give the Viberg size as printed on the boot.
Apropos the Venetian Balm: when you clean your boots (shouldn't be too often), clean them with a wet cloth, let them dry, brush them down, apply a small amount of the balm all over the leather. Let it settle for 20 minutes, then brush it down, and then use a soft, dry cloth to buff the shoe to a nice sheen. Be warned that Venetian Balm always gives a very glossy look, so if that's not what you're going for, don't use it.
Looking at it, I'd agree with this. Good luck!
Nice ben ^^^. Decided to finish dubbin my boondockers, now completely covered and ready for the wet!
It's definitely durable and water resistant, but it is slippery on certain surfaces, even after months of wear.
Haha thanks Fok, I can only imagine! They fit like an absolute glove, thanks for your diligence! Heel slippage should go away after approx 2 weeks of wear. Very normal in the first few days.
