Last message from me at least for today. The thing about the 2030 last is that it actually is pretty sleek. My 2030 service boots look more like a dress boot in shape than a work boot. But natural cxl is certainly not a dressy leather--far from it--and I like the contrast. The eyelet thing is not a deal breaker at all for me, and I even like them as pictured, but the 2030 last is, in my opinion, not at all what a conventional work boot last looks like--thought that is...
I couldn't find a picture of a truly plain derby (or blucher for that matter) with nat cxl and blind eyelets, but to get a sense of the leather itself with blind eyelets, this is what I found: http://leffot.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/DSC_00038.jpg http://leffot.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/DSC_00067.jpg
Might even consider brass eyelets, but would prefer 6 to 5.
I would like to vote for the 6 blind eyelets. In my mind, it actually makes the shoe just a tad bit more versatile in that you could wear it with something that comes closer to a business-casual look, particularly on a 2030 last.
April discount code? Just saw some shoes I"d like to get. Thanks.
I wonder if the price is off too, not just the description? I somehow thought these would be a little less expensive than the boots. The chukkas are less
I agree. I also REALLY like the blind eyelets.
I would like to see more pics of ebony essex if possible--at the Horween site they just post a description and the picture is of a different color. I know Brown CXL and like it. As for double leather sole vs. Dainite, I might prefer Dainite only because of the increased wearability and longer lasting sole (and love that it is low profile so still looks like a leather soled shoe) but probably wouldn't opt out of it were double leather.
I think I"m in--but is the thought of 2040 instead of 2030 because the 2040 toe might be slightly too pointy to be considered really a Derby? I like the idea of a slimmer last--wouldn't be in if it were on the 110, but haven't seen any 2040's in person to compare to the 2030 service boot I own.
What size shoe do you normally wear? I can tell you that I actually size down a full size from my Trubalance last (may even be slightly bigger than Barrie) and they fit great. I'm an 8 D in Trubalance, 7 in Viberg 2030. The issue is that the 2030 is a fairly narrow last, but also longer than some Barrie lasts. I chose my size after doing a tracing and sending it to Morgan at Viberg. I have other pairs of Vibergs in the 110 last--also size 7--which are wider but not...
