Viberg Boots - Page 95

post #1411 of 6989
From my conversations with Guy and Morgan, the distinctions have been removed, since they were fairly arbitrary to begin with. I think that we can get any configuration, as long as it is reasonable.

It looks like we have at least 4 people interested in this so hopefully we can move forward with this MTO.

7 eyelets is fine and I especially like the idea of the cap toe.

I am leaning more toward a 2030 last and hate the idea of 310 last. -simple google search- (pic of 310 last included in this post) 

Any more input on this Mocha Chromexcel service boot?

perhaps we could try to finalize a few make-ups so that participants to the group-buys could express their allegiance :-)

Definitely Slab.

Anyone with more knowledge about Viberg care to whip up some specifics for each? For example: Joona would you care to offer specs for a plain toe black service boot? The images you've supplied are absolutely the kind of boot I'd be after.

Sure Arizor, I'll list the specs that I am aware for those 2 black boots. Also, leather options for a black service boot are at the moment (at least for single MTO) Black Oil Tan and Black Chromexcel.

 

The Manufactum's 1940 Service Boots:

 

- to my understanding, 2030 last

- black shell cordovan upper (note that the togue is not made of cordovan)

- Unlined shaft, front area lined with calfskin

- partial box toe/partially structured toe, meaning that "It basically covers the edge of the front end" as Morgan put it.

- dainite sole

- natural single midsole

- 5 eyelets, no top band

 

Tate+Yoko 1950 Service Boot

 

 

- 2030 last

- black calf leather

- to my understanding, no box toe/unconstructed toe

- natural single midsole

- 6 eyelets

 

There is also single MTO black cordovan 1950 Service Boot you might be interested, but I don't know the specs for sure (you could ask about them directly from inquire at SuFu, if needed):

This afternoon, I am going to set up a separate poll with some of the more popular suggestions you've all brought up here.

If there is enough interest, I will talk to Guy and Brett, and we'll see how fast we can start this. Sound good?
post #1418 of 6989
My suggestion would be something along the lines of:

style: Service Boot
leather: Vintage Tan Roughout
toe cap: Brogue Captoe Baroque Toe Cap (maybe straight but probably not)
last: 2030 Last (possibly 2040 if too many people found the 2030 too narrow)
sole: Dainite Sole or leather sole

Basically, something along the lines of the follow collaboration with Nigel Cabourn but without the pre-distressing:

918930


The other makeup I would love to see would be the same as the whiskey scotch grain cavalier and brown CXL (two colors in other words) service boot they have as a standard but on a sleeker last like the 2030. So, something like the following boot but with a sleeker toe box:

918931

918932

Any love for merlot?    Does Viberg have a burgundy color in other leathers?

Awesome! Though it seems the others expressing interest in black boots may have a different aesthetic vision than I did frown.gif

I'm actually going to hold off on the poll until Monday or so, when I get a greenlight from Brett. Sorry for the wait guys, but I don't want to jump the gun on this.

Cheers,

Fok.
