Wow they look great, the Viberg4horsemen are nice boots.
Anyone know what these 2 pairs are called?,one looks like an ironworker and no idea on the square toed boot.

Bootcan, The sq. toe might be based on the sq. toe hiker last? I just had my Hunters rebuilt using this last because my feet flare way out on the outside of my toebox. This boot is now almost a perfect fit without being custom fit/made to measure. Now the Hunters are my designated Harley ride'in boots. BillyB

Back from stomping around in Southern Indiana and Western Kentucky for the week and felt like a clean and polish were in order. I used Saphir Médaille d'Or Renovateur Cleaner and Conditioner finished with Saphir Médaille d'Or Pommadier Cream Shoe Polish in Mahogani colour which I felt was the best match.

The TSA staff at IND took a special liking to my boots and took them aside for special screening and swabbing / scanning etc. One of their staff said "we are going to have to wear these boots for half a day to make sure that they are OK". TSA humour at it's finest.

Enjoy.

Incredible looking boots. The Hikers will get the Renovateur n conditioner and some beeswax.i been using beeswax and mink oils on my hikers for over 30 years and swear it keeps leather in perfect condition.

TSA humour at it's finest. Your lucky..in my size they're considered luggage and i pay extra per carry on. Quotes ain't working.

BillyB,

I like the red contrasting stitching.

Bootcan,

I opted for the 8 oz. black leather in lieu of the standard 7 oz. pebbled black. Not sure if I would recommend that to anyone. 8 oz. leather is stout and breaks in real slowwww. I also had them rebuilt with a 100 lug soles, but the original 1276 Sierras are a more comfy ride.

Gary,

Thanks, I have always thought black and red go well together. I just seemed like the thing to do.

billyb the red stitching looks great..i seen a pair of Wesco Highliners with all black stitching and the heel stays had red stitching and looked really nice. Looking around the web and found japanese market only hikers in some great looking leather. First two are Chromexcel Brown and the third is an edible Chromexcel Merlot.

Hi Garry,i found all my waxes..obernaufs,bees wax,mink oil and 2 half bottles of neatsfoot oil that look cloudy..Where did you order the Saphir from?I'm thinking 2 of the renovateure,the pommadiere creams and wax in bordeaux,and some dubbin,maybe some saphir neatsfoot. I seen the Viberg blog and have been staring all day.

Bootcan, hangerproject.com is where I found the Saphir.
post #44 of 74
I thought that the Bordeaux would be the best match but it is darker than the Merlo Chromexcel. The Mahogany cream was a lighter and better match although after I use Obenauf's oil and heavy duty LP next winter, the darker Bordeaux may match better.

Will do Gary,hanger project i been looking at,there's also another online,"francos:?.seems one has some and the other doesn't,maybe they splitting the product?..lol,I, have another area to check for the saphir, which is probably unlikely and then i'll order online..yesterday i went out and found 5 stores that carry Redwings and no saphir..i seen a pair of $750 LTD edition wolverines that looked ok but felt like a pair of canvas running shoes-light weight.
