Hell Yeah for the Half Japanese!   You all know I have a shit ton of Vibergs; these are the finest I've purchased.   Have to say, the 110 last is so fine and balanced, I really wish Viberg would consider making more of it.  I know there are many that don't agree.  This shoe is absolutely beautiful.   More balanced than the Derby, especially in the larger sizes, and anything on the 2030.

🎯Hideous was prolly what I was aiming for, subconsciously ... Mosdef a [herd] repellant 😏😏

My dad had something in similar shade/colorway back in the 70's when "Earth" shoes & HushPuppies were the rave😬

Actually, when I snagged them, I already had an idea of tweaking the color into a slightly darker shade of brown, then swapping the soles w/ an add'l leather midsole= double leather + Neoprene Corded outsoles, once it's time for re-sole.

Prolly still gonna be hideous for SF, but hey__ comes down to POV😏

I just opened up my half Japanese and garage boot boxes. Haven't tried them on yet but I didn't get the waxed laces like you did with my half Japanese. I got thin ones and leather ones for both boots. Did those laces come with your half Japanese shoes?

Random shots of my half Japanese and Garage boots(Fat waxed en route) to show the boot inners etc.. The garage boots are tanks!

 

Which laces do you all think would look best on these. I sort of like the wider waxed laces that billymax has, as I have the same on my reverse kudus, but I don't know.

 

I'm so glad I stuck with my regular Viberg size on these 110's as my 1035(thanks Raneleigh). Thought about going down .5 but it would have been too snug.

I was looking at the tannage list on Horween's site, and it appears to pretty similar though without the aniline finish and, as you note, has a waxy feel and a matte look. Can anyone comment on other properties? I seem to remember seeing on reddit at some point that chromepak is the more durable work leather, less dressy compared to the potential shine of CXL.

 

In any case, they pretty much seem like two very similar leathers that yield a different look.

Quick unboxing pics before I head out. Really liking the latigo leather - a little lighter brown than I was expecting, which I find really appealing. Heel is a good 1.25" high, and half-sole vibram fits perfectly with the aesthetic. Well worth the money - nice job, Viberg and thanks Fok/SF!

that's a good look

It's basically the perfect work shoe. Even fits a little better than the blue collar shit-kicker, which is also on the 110 last. Maybe because I lace the oxford a little tighter over the vamp?
