Viberg Boots - Page 966

This boot fits snugger than the Context horsebutt but I anticipate a stretch rate so it should be fine - other things I noticed that the toe box was shaped slightly different on the two rough out boots...one was a bit higher than the other - I assume the unstructured to will eventually take care of that.

On the side by side, the stitchdown and welt difference becomes pretty obvious and it is a big style difference in my eyes. The Boondocker looks less beefy compared to the stitchdown and I think on a last like the 2030 it would be even more noticeable. Not sure what the white powder is on the tongues but it would probably close down a govt building.

Not having the brighter white stitching also is a downer to me. I think Viberg could come to a good place if they cut the sole pieces wider and used a wider flat welt and went with two rows of stitching like the stitchdown. It would preserve the look of the stitchdown and the Viberg Identity while seemingly accomplishing their goal of less waste with the GYW.

Do you have any updated pictures of the boondockers? Someone offered me a trade and I'm interested to see what they might look like after some wear. Also, how is the fit compared to other lasts?

My Natty Shell Boots have finally arrived. Very pleased with these bad boys.

Just thought that I'd pop in and have been reading what you guys are putting down, and which I'll be picking up.  Lots of interesting ideas.  We'll start talking about another round of GMTOs once I get a partial list of leathers and construction methods we can use for each.

 

Carry on!

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

And I thought you were joking when you said they were on their way to you.

How? Where?

Kind of my thinking too. I've got a pair of half-japanese too, and am looking for a more forgiving sole (like the gumlite Vibram Bologna in the pic I posted) and have always liked the brogued cap-toe variation on this theme.  I dig the darker leather too, though the Context horse butt mentioned above is something special. And despite my doubts at first, the 110 last has turned out to suit my foot very nicely, and looks neither too cLuNky nor sleeeek.

I would also love seeing a SF version of the Red Dog ScoutBoots: https://www.thebureaubelfast.com/shop/4053/red-dog-rough-out-scout-boot
2045 or 110. Partially or Structured toe. Commando sole. Speedhooks.

I'm down for a 2045 stichdown Unstructured corded sole Boondocker. The 2045 Munson last is best ever for a Boondocker. Note: on the go forward Viberg will not stock the Boondocker on their website with stichdown construction. It'll only be with the flat welt. So do I need to remind everyone here's our opportunity to get a Boondocker with stichdown construction.

That was something special between Context and Horween and we will not be using that leather.

I remember last time we tried to do Boondockers, they wouldn't give us that fourth row of stitching.  To me, that doesn't make it a Boondocker.  Anyhow, good luck!  I probably won't be getting a Boondocker since I already have natural CXL roughouts.

@gsgleason  sorry I have not worn them...I had forgotten in my excitement that I was on the 3sixteen boondocker pre-order and decided that was a more unique make up so I decided to stick with those..in theory they should arrive after the new year. I am fairly certain I wont be buying any other unstructured toed boots/shoes as I just am not a fan of the look...roughout since it does not crease is the exception. The only downer for the 3sixteen though from what I recall is that it is not contrast stitching on the upper....it is stitchdown though so that will help.

That 4th row was because it was in the 110. I'm sure Viberg will 4th row the stitching on a 2045 which is a munson last and is the proper last for a Boondocker. They've done the 4th row for other stockists so why can't they do it for us.

Drooling over those. Who do I have to pay off to get those on my feet?

Munson last was for army boots. Besides 2045 boondockers are pretty common, BCC is restocking them.
