Shoe trees will definitely minimize toe curve, although some people desire that.

The owner of these boots is the photographer Jesse Lirola: https://instagram.com/jesselirola/ 

 

He's a fashion and music photographer, so the backstory is not quite as rugged as you imagined, but he's no doubt on the move and outdoors frequently. You just have to commit to a pair of boots and wear them day in, day out.

Still debating whether getting the #8 or the Brown but i think i will go for brown as i got too many #8 boot

I love that we live in a world that otherwise anonymous boots from some picture can be attributed to someone. Thanks.

I will attach here a pic or two of my boot lineup from a couple of years ago:  my old Chippewas, OSB Trench, and Viberg 310s.  I wore the OSBs for over a year, and I liked them pretty well.  The toe is not nearly as turned up as it seems in some pics, as others have said.  I  liked the way they looked, and they functioned well as a good basic pair of boots.  Unfortunately when I sent them in for a resole, they came back with a higher heel which just didn't work for me; so I ended up selling them.

I am tossing up between the Viberg Service Boot and the Oak Street Trench Boot, as they both have that slimmer aesthetic. Before I dive into buying anything, I was wondering if anyone has seen both these boots in person? I ask because whilst I am willing to drop the $$ on the Viberg, I would like to consider the cheaper option in the Oak Street boots. I first want to get a feel for how they compare in terms of the toe curve, because most of the pictures I've seen of the Oak street boots make it look like the toe box curves upwards a lot compared to the Vibergs.

The 310 is more of a costume piece than a wardrobe piece. I owned a pair and realized if I wasn't wearing old timey work wear shit I just looked like a clown. You need a canvas vest and some LVC 55s or something. Rock them in any other way and you look like a silly person. I have pics to prove it but I'm too embarrassed to post them!

Goofing around with my half Japanese:

With my Epaulet Tartan trousers.

 

"I'm turning half Japanese

I think I'm turning half Japanese

I really think so".

I'd really appreciate seeing this

I'd love to see someone with some 310 wear pics as well. I seriously considering buying a pair.

Also any sizing advice. There isn't much info on them in the US.

Sizewise, my experience was they were bit narrower than I expected, but otherwise standard Viberg sizing.  Also, it is the only last (I believe) that Viberg offers both a D and an E width in, which is helpful for some of us.
