This is with renovateur.

I've wondered what to use when I get to the point of needing to condition as well. That was prompted when I discovered that the aged bark had a nap. I kind of like the nap so not sure what I'm going to do.

Anyone here just sitting in a cafe Davis Sq, Somerville, MA, sporting black waxed flesh? He ran away too soon for me to awkwardly walk up and say: "Hey bro. I see you have Vibergs. I have Vibergs too."

For the Alden J. Crew PCT's in barrie, I wouldn't say the boot is overly snug, no. I'm able to wear them with both thin and mid-weight socks. I don't tend to wear terribly thick socks in general so I doubt I would begin with the Vibergs. I actually have a very thin insert in the Aldens as well right now as there was a spot on the ball of my foot that was feeling tender. It's possible in thin socks maybe I could wear a 7, though I'm glad I have the 7.5. The 7.5 Clarks have a looser fit as I prefer to tie them as loosely as possible so that I barely feel them. There is plenty of room in the foot bed though.

I think I've been persuaded toward the 7s. For those of you who have both the 2030 Service Boots and the the Alden PCTs, how would you compare the weight and flexibility of the two? I've heard the Vibergs are built like tanks; I feel like the Aldens have plenty of heft to them as well though so wondering if it's similar or if one is substantially weightier than the other.

Note that the JCrew PCT boot seems to generally fit smaller than other barrie lasted boots. I personally find the J crew PCT to fit VERY close to the 2030 last in the same size, but perhaps a bit smaller.

Meaning, I feel the 2030 will be a tad longer than the JCrew PCT, and wider everywhere but the toe box.

It's worth noting that both of these are from Viberg itself.  Also, I know that the black unicorn roughout was done like that by mistake.  I mean, you cover all that work with black edge paint, so...

You live near there?  I used to live 10 minutes walk away from David Square.  It was always a chiller alternative to Harvard Square.

I'm an 8.5c brannock, 8.5 ball-heel, and find a 7.5 on the 2030 to be on the short side. It works for me but only after significant break-in. I also have a size 8 2030 and feel that it's a more ideal fit, although I wear pretty thick socks to make it work due to width.

 

Personally, I think you should really go get your foot measured again and see what the ball-heel is. You should be sizing to your largest foot, and a whole 1.5 down for Brannock-Viberg seems crazy unless you have relatively short toes. I wonder if the tender spot on your ball is because those PCTs are too short*. Once upon a time I managed to wear a 7 on an indy just because I was going by toe space but in truth they were murdering my feet and making my gait weird.

 

* The effect would have the foot sliding firmly into the front of the boot, which sometimes people mistake for a boot/shoe being too long. In reality it's what can happen when the ball of your foot strikes the ground firmly just ahead of the flex point, pulling your foot forward. An insert can mask this effect to some degree and make your foot stay put, but with a bit more length your foot should naturally stay put, even if the shoe is on the wide side.

 

I dunno, I can't really imagine going up to an 8 in the PCTs; I can slide a finger behind my foot in them or move my foot around a bit when they're laced up, and the issue is on my smaller foot. It feels like there is maybe an ever so slight hard spot under the ball of my left pinky toe, a slight unevenness. I chalked it up to maybe an imperfection in construction, but if anything it feels more like it would be an issue of width over length. 

 

I will admit the thought of sizing a full 1.5 down had me apprehensive, but it seemed to be what most sources were telling me. This revelation that the PCT boots generally fit smaller than other barrie boots has me a little confused, seems to suggest that I would be a 7 in other Alden barrie, and that still leaves me with the 8.5 Brannock measurement. My sneaker size is usually 8.5 (generally New Balance), not that that probably adds a whole lot to the discussion right now.

Somerville all the way. The pathetic heart of Hipsterdom on Earth. Harvard Square is a soulless place. 

 

I know there a few guys on here who live in the Boston area. My first Viberg spotting!

I still eat at Daves Fresh Pasta a couple of times a month. We moved to Newburyport from the 'Ville in 2001. We loved up,the street in Teele Sq.

Nice transition! I spend every Saturday in the summer at Plum Island. That place is a gem. Newburyport is way more fun than Bummerville, even if it's out in the burbs.

Does anybody happen to have a fit pic of the 3sixteen black oil tan roughouts paired up with black denim?
