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



If possible, I would probably be in for a brown-shaded cordovan (mahogany, whiskey, etc.). I also would probably be interested in the pebble grain whiskey you suggest but would propose doing it on a sleeker last (e.g., 2030). For that matter, I would be interested in the two-tone one they have on the site if in a seeker last.

The other suggestion I have is a normal service boot in a sleek last (so along the lines of 2030 Last, Brogue Toe Cap, Dainite Sole, No Box Toe) in the vintage tan roughout. I believe this would be along the lines of one of their early Nigel Cabourn collaborations but without the distressing.

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.

Try the link, there are a few pictures with them being worn. Also try searching on google or bing for Viberg oxford 145 shoes images, like so:

They look good, but probably even better when they're broken in. I'm not too fond of the toe cap though, but i don't like toe caps in general. How is sizing for the oxford. I'm normally a us10 so I was thinking I need a uk9, but I don't know if the oxfords have a snug or roomy fit. Any suggestions?

Yes, I'm just the opposite - I love a cap toe. If you go with the 110 last the UK9 will be fine for a US10D, I'm a US10E or 10 1/2 - so I use the UK9.5. On the 110 last they are a perfect fit for me.

Seer: The more I see these shoes the more I want a pair. How are they breaking in? I am hoping to catch a pair on sale somewhere or find another vendor like Yuketen that makes something close in look. I know the quality most likely wont be the same. I like the black sole you put on those. More of a classic look. 'I am interested to see what the MTO choices the group decides will look like for the boot ,shoe, chukka etc Have a good weekend all DuckOB

They are breaking in fine, actually they are broken in - I have worn them a lot. They still look exactly the same, the leather is so thick that it doesn't really crease like my old Aldens or AEs. I have a pair of Service Boots in Red Dog leather ordered - MTO. It will be a while but I will post pictures when I get them. From what I know the Yuketens are a good shoe - I think they are made in Canada too - but I don't know by who.

I will get my first pair of Viberg Oxfords next week (brown harness leather, cap toe, vibram christy) and am not able to compare Yuketen and Viberg directly yet. But I have 4 pairs of Yuketen that I absolutly love! The quality is great and they are the most comfortable shoes I own. From what I understand they choose from different artisans who produce fore them, mostly in Maine but also in Mexico and newly in Italy, where my brand new Yuketen Sneakers are from (very stylish!!) Let´s see how the Viberg Oxford will be.. Z

How does their 2045 Last fit?

 

Is it typically TTS, and is it safe to assume it would be a full size less than the typical US size?

 

 

I wear a size 11 1/2D in most shoes, and a size 11 Alden Barrie, so would I be safe to assume I would wear a size 10 1/2 UK in this Last on their service boot?

I believe you will find that the Vibergs are heavier, more substantial. There will be a little more break in time, but they get supremely comfortable - especially on the Vibram sole.

Hey guys, a little help on the lasts and sizing.  I'm looking at making this oxford as one option for the SF MTO.

 

 

Just have a question between the 2030 and the 110 last.  Some pictures.

 

2030 Last

 

110 Last

 

Now, the 110 is obviously rounder.  How would you size these?  Is the 2030 last still a "normal width" last or is it long and narrow?  Can anyone comment and compare them to...say...the Alden Barrie last?  I'm leaning towards the 2030 last, but if its considered long/narrow, then maybe not.  Thanks.

If this is helpful for someone.

I have Viberg 2040 last boots in size 8 and the fit is perfect . I'm size 9D US TTS and wear Alden 9D in Plaza,/8.5D in Barrie lasts.

I think the 2030 is far and away the best looking last Viberg has

wait until you try 2040.. might not be as sleek as 2030 but it's unreal in terms of comfort and still has nice profile.
