Viberg Boots - Page 84

post #1246 of 6548

111. Service Boot Hand Cut Sample Pattern, Mahogany Shell Cordovan, Fully Lined, Brogue Toe Cap, Dainite Sole, 2030 Last, No Box Toe.

 

I would love a plain toe boot in that pattern or the 50s service or the scout in shell although I think shell would be pretty tough unless they already have it as Horween is backordered til 2014. Horsehide may be a better bet

Cordovan (#8, Cigar, whiskey, etc.) or Natural Chromexcel for both models.

The thought of contrasting leathers, an outlandish thick, or colored sole (orange, blue, purple) is unappealing.

 

I would love to hear suggestions.

 

 

FTFY

i actually think anything handcut AND in cordovan would be crazy expensive -- even if the MTO fee is waved. were talking about $1K easy. and if thats the case, wed be hard pressed to come up with numbers.

 

Im all for cordovan though.

 

Heres what im suggesting -- An all whiskey version of the pebble grain service boot currently available at Viberg in all black.

 

there is a whiskey with a smoothed out cordovan on the toe and counter available as well, but its not as nice as the all pebble grained version. this is also not a new idea... there was a sample made for the Berlin show last year, and its the one i contacted Guy about during the sample sale. Thing is Brett Viberg himself kept that pair- he posts enough photos of them all the time on ig.

 

Now does he want to share the look? i wouldnt. lol. but we should give it a shot.

 

see below

A big plus here is that they probably have stock for this gorgeous leather.

Although my preference is a smooth cordovan on the 2030 Last, I would purchase the full whiskey pebble grain if made available.

Great idea!

Hey Fok, clue me in on why your MTO service boot is considered a "sneaker boot"?

The Chukka, No.8 Cordovan, Tan Lining, Dainite Sole/Heel, 2030 Last, No Box Toe is my favortite too. The Tan Lining is not a must have!

LA Guy, please note these chukka for me.

If you guys do a Cordovan it will put these out of reach for many of us...

Because of the way I chose the sole, really. It's will be a chunky, double midsole, on a sole that is too thick to be considered "dressy" in any way, but not durable enough to be considered anything like a work sole. I thought of something that a company like Visvim, which has a streetwear background, might do if it was playing with the idea of a boot, but for the urban environment and for a super casual style, and came up with this.

Well, not every boot or shoe will be for everybody. It will just require a large enough buy in for each boot. If something is not for you, you can be assured that something else will be, since we plan to make this an ongoing program.

Dude, that sounds rad.  When do you think this whole MTO thing will get kickstarted?

They will sit on a double leather midsole and a beige Vibram 2060 sole. I designed them specifically as "sneaker boots". If enough people want something like that, we can get them in the Styleforummarket MTO program. We will document the entire process.
 

 

Sounds like they will look somewhat similar to these LSxSE Aldens (minus the roughout 2-tone, and double mid)

Well, they are similar in that they both have a beige sole and have blucher style lacing and a cap toe. But the lasts are different, the models are different - from the number of eyelets to the fact that there is no heel counter on the Aldens, the leather is different, the midsole is different. They would probably look similar if you were in a dark room, 20 feet away, but otherwise, not so much.

Can anyone lead me to some on feet pics of the oxford shoes?

 

I'm interested in buying a pair but can't really find any on feet pics on google or anything. I'd appreciate the help.
