I just cancel my preorder due to the change of eyelets which is the main reason to order at the first place. PTC told me Viberg no longer doing 10 eyelets.

wonder how many orders will get cancelled because of that. I agree on 10 eyelets.

I'm curious do you guys already own similar boots with 7 eyelets?  I hope you don't take this the wrong way because Im not trying to judge or ridicule.  I know details matter and we all get pretty focused on specifics (myself included) but once you put them on and I presume you are wearing pants you never even see it, and if you really like the boots and want to wear them it is difficult for me to understand how this would be enough for you to want to cancel.

are lace to toe oxfords strictly a Japanese thing?

CCP will have a darker, more solid/opaque base than the CXL __w:c may appear to darken from wear & patination [on the surface], but natural leather shows through, like backlight ... kind of. 'Effect adds dimension to its look. Hence, natty is popular🤓

The standard SF response would be that they're different enough so buy both.  After acquiring a decent collection of boots, I have become much more discerning in the boots I buy.  I used to buy impetuously when I got excited by some pics of boots.  I now take a step back and think about how close they are to something in my collection and visualize how eagerly I would reach for them in the morning.  To be honest, as appealing as say, whiskey shell or cigar shell appeared to me when I bought them, I don't reach for them that often because they sort of don't fit into my particular aesthetic.

 

I think going through those thought processes is always worthwhile before making a purchase.  Of course, it depends on your collection, how formal or casual your attire usually is, etc.

 

Bottom line, if I were faced with the choice/decision you are posing, I would conclude that Nat CXL, once patina is developed, would be too close to the chromepack that I'd rather look for something a bit more different.

 

Probably longer response than you wanted.  :satisfied:

No, this is exactly the type of response I wanted/needed to read. This also accurately describes my thought process over the last 12 hours! I really like the unique coffee makeup from Notre and love the pictures on IG, but after settling down and thinking about it I'm not sure it's different enough for me to justify having both. I haven't made up my mind completely, but that's the thought process and your post is very helpful. Thanks!

Sorry, I meant to respond to you as well in my last post. This is also very helpful. I love the natural CXL, so I may just keep rocking those and wait on another makeup. I'm still holding out hope that those shell service boots are going to be released by .com, but was that a one-off makeup for a customer? I couldn't tell from the responses on here.

There's supposedly going to be a preorder offered on Viberg's site sometime this month.  Super small batch though, like 15 pairs I heard.

my natural shell cordovan boot was a replacement pair. I don't think there will be another run of these in the near future. But you can bid on a MTO pair in Fok's charity auction and have it made to your desire (sort of). It may be expensive though.

there will also be a natural shell plain toe boot preorder this month. I know it is on a new last with double leather soles. no idea how many pairs though.

Get hyped for them!

I am not such a fan of plain toe shell...though I want a natty shell pair.
