Viberg Boots - Page 89

post #1321 of 19831
I do own both IR ranger and wolverine Addison and will soon get my first viberg shoe with a 2030 last (but the Oxford). I tried the cordovan 2030 service boot in the store and its definitefely a more dressier shoe that goes very well with chinos and a more upscale outfit. There are plenty of pictures on google!
The wolverine is in between and a shoe that I also love but always wear with jeans (the colour is tan).
The IR is for going to a concert, bad weather, and is more sturdy. The "balloony" look will fade over time as the front becomes more flat.
Hope that helps..

the unstructured toe on some of the 2030's that you have shown are what contribute to the sleeker look, where as the ones with toe reinforment have a little higher profile, that being said I own redwings, and whites and the service boot with the structure toe that i own are much dressier than either of those. Look much closer to a casual/dress boot than to a typical work boot. though they look great with denim too.

Cool - thanks lads, that's exactly the advice I was after.

PSA - One size left of Nigel Cabourn x Viberg at Barney's warehouse.  Also have the loden green chukka in a couple of odd sizes.

I've tried a few options...nothing's working.  I have to admit I am really disappointed.  I gave pretty specific details and foot drawings and these shoes just came out beautiful but's quite a bummer for $700, but I guess that was the risk I was taking...They do look good though.  They are making their way to the forums now.  Super sad...700

I am curious whether anyone here got a pair of the ready-to-wear black horsehide service boots (2045 last) that were sold off the new website.  If so, I'd love to see pics of them in the wild.  (Also, if anyone has a pair in 9.5 that they may be interested in selling, I might be interested in buying. They are sold out and not being replenished.)

My MTO boots are now in the mail. Guy documented the entire manufacturing process, and we will be printing it in a three part series. Here are a few teaser shots:

Gorgeous. Would you mind supplying the specs you asked for?
post #1331 of 19831
Sure. This is what I specified:

Service boot - 7 eyelets.
Heather grey roughout with a heather grey (not roughout) heel counter.
110 Last
Deconstructed toe/no toebox.
Brogued captoe
Double leather midsole (in natural)
Vibram 2060 beige outsole
gunmetal eyelets
Rawhide laces, and I believe that guy was going to send me some waxed "bone" laces as well.

Based on past conversations with Guy and my slight mis-sizing in the 2030 last (well, it turned out, just not the ideal last for me - a little too long, but a little too shallow), a size 9.5UK.

When we start the MTO program, I've been told that the minimum is merely... 4 pairs. That means that you only need to find 3 likeminded people to get a boot made.

Based on what I've seen, I'm thinking of a "dressier" service boot, on the 2030 last, with a dainite sole, and 8+ eyelets, maybe in a burgundy color, or some shell cordovan, if there is enough interest, a chukka or an oxford in roughout in the 110 or 2040 last, and a boondocker. Are there are any more suggestions? I think that the prices would be around $650, maybe slighly less, for the non-cordovan models. Not sure how much the cordovan models would be, but they price would probably be considerably higher, as you might imagine.

Someone buy boots in a charcoal nubuck with me... like dayton service boots... without the dayton.

For your inspiration...

post #1333 of 19831
To be fair, the distressed W+H ones were way better than the normal Dayton ones.

I know but unobtanium frown.gif You will have to manually distress them.
