Just to add to Lifeinabox, you also need to consider the last: nearly all of Viberg's lasts are too bulky to really 'dress up'. The 2030 in cordovan would perhaps do the job for dress slacks, but I can think of little else.
I think the 2045 last is great. 2030 is definitely the gateway drug of Viberg, but soon after you will begin to appreciate the other more work boot-esque lasts.
I'm with you jimanchower, I try and keep my rotation to 4 boots, hence (in part) my signature...
This is a pair of Lone Wolf Carpenter boots in brown, size 9.5.
They were a risk for me, considering I'm a 10-11 in all other boot brands, but this is the largest size they do and I couldn't resist rolling the dice.
Turns out they are just a hair too small for me. My loss, your gain.
Incredible craftsmanship, gorgeous cat's paw NOS soles.
Outer sole measures 31.5cm.
500450 shipped within Australia, anywhere else contact me and we'll work something out.
I gotta say guys (though if you're taking pleasure in the boot, good for you) - generally if a boot is causing you pain, that's not just "par for the course" wearing boots: it means that the last isn't suited to your foot, or you sized wrong.
In many cases I've read here, I'm baffled as to why the person isn't selling the boot on (especially Vibergs seem to retain their value) and getting the proper size/different last that you'd be much happier with in the long term.
