I feel you. I am the same way. I have a pair in the 2030 last, and while they look cool, they are not that comfortable to wear. I would definitely advocate for a deconstructed toe on the 110 last. I chose that, and that was also Guy and Morgan's recommendation.

I would think so. That's one of the really distinctive features of the service boot. Whether the captoe would be brogued would be by vote/consensus.

Cheers,

Hey i am most likely in depending on cost. At 550 I'm in for sure. What is the cost going to be on these? Also i prefer the 10 eyelets but am fine with 7 or 8 too

Fok,

Any first hand quotes on pricing? There is a lot of speculation but no firm numbers.

I prefer the clean and simple look of plain toe 1950 service boots (no box toe, dainite sole, 2030 last, 6 eyelets, natural sole edge) over the brogue cap-toes. 

 

Tate+Yoko had one in black calf:

 

 

 

 

 

And then there was the brown version at Superdenim

 

 

I'll wait a month or two before ordering more Vibergs, but if there will be enough interest then, perhaps we could do also something like those two, but in either icy mocha cxl, some thick horse hide or shell cordovan (would prefer walnut, #8 or black scotch grain cordovan as I already ordered black cordovan 1940 service boots from manufactum.de).

Many here have already said it, but I also want to emphasize how very pleased I've been with the folks at Viberg. Just recently Morgan has been extremely helpful with the various questions I've had about MTO orders, stock models for European retailers, shell cordovan availability and what not. 

 

edit: Thanks Find Finn! I have, and they sure are great. 

 

These well used older 4horsemen's service boots look stunning:

Is the 2030 last any narrower than say Alden Barrie?  I was quoted to go with an 8E, but I'm an 8D in Alden barrie, pretty normal foot size...would rather stick with D if I could.

post #1405 of 6548
The 1950 vs. the 1940 service boot distinction (essentially, it had to do with whether there was a contrasting leather trim at the ankle) has now been removed. At least, that was what I go from mu conversation with Guy. Also, the standard number of eyelets of 7. They found that the six-eyelet configuration made for an accordion effect, because the eyelets were spaced far apart. So I would recommend 7+ eyelets, but these choices are all up to you.

re. the toecap, it depends on what you guys want and as willing to buy.

Cheers,

Fok.

i have actually waited for more than a year hoping that they will accept cordovan in mto. I guess i will have to wait a bit longer. 

post #1407 of 6548

I'm in for the charcoal nubuck service boots or any of the one Joona posted above.  So lets get this started already.

Can't wait for a cooler weather to wear my Derby Country boots
(Horween brown wax flesh, false toe cap, 2040 Last, no box toe)

Also ordered second pair of leather laces and Viberg customer service is top notch.

Rome wasn't built in day. It took at least a week. That said, I'm on it like a fat kid on cheetos.
