Viberg Boots - Page 90

Sorry....incorrect post

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 #1339 of 6254
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...

To be fair, the distressed W+H ones were way better than the normal Dayton ones.
post #1342 of 6254
I know but unobtanium frown.gif You will have to manually distress them.

And sold! So does something in the vein of "w+h x viberg" seem workable Fok? A plain toe distressed charcoal/black nubuck on whichever was their sleeker last.

LA Guy,
You have great suggestions on the mto boots, how about natural chromexcel service boot/chukka 2030 last as a possibility?
I have some great angles of my Viberg 2030 last #8 chukka's (cant post due to size though) PM if interested. No I will not sell them.
When Cordovan becomes a possibility, I see no shortage of participants.

A roughout or suede Chukka with commando sole, would be awesome.

Post coming out weird. Will repost my makeup soon

In c4est's interview the Viberg guys said they were getting some Guidi leather, will that be available in the SF-MTO program? If so I would love a service boot in dark brown Guidi leather.

post #1350 of 6254

Fok, that looks great man.  Is that last picture just of the double natural leather sole and they still need to put on the vibram sole?  awesome....

 

I would love to get an MTO of basically that design but in an oxford.  I had talked to Morgan, but I think he said that there are no grey roughouts anymore.  Bummer?
