Viberg Boots - Page 978

post #14656 of 19330

I know that @LA Guy and @Synthese are carrying out the R&D work for the Echo boot, but Poe Dameron is ahead of Styleforum (one of the advantages of being a long time ago), and is onto the Jakku boot.

 

 

Look at the soles on them. It's also obvious he's not a fan of the 2030 last either!

Anyone here ever dub kudu? Or do anything else to it to substantially alter it? 

post #14658 of 19330
Kudu is already very oily and dark so I'm not sure it would do anything.

Speaking of the echo boot. Do we know anything about how it's coming along?

I picked up the 3sixteen Black Mini Ripple Service Boot a while back. Unfortunately, the instep is just too tight so I'm looking to let them go if anyone's interested. They are brand new, only tried on indoors for size (9.5). Trying to recoup my losses.

Sorry I meant something like smoke or tan reverse kudu.

I thought I'd share some evo pics of my frequently-worn WF Derby Boots.  I wear these to job-sites, in the rain, in the mud, etc.  They're my shit-kickers and perform admirably in that role.  They're my 2nd favorite boots, after some Wesco LTT Jobmasters.  Overall, I'm really pleased with these boots.  I'm thinking about re-waxing them and starting the process over.

Those are outstanding. Rivals any picture I've seen of them worn in like that.

Interestingly, today I received mine, in black.

I feel they are too small (the toe area in my left foot feels really tight, not just snug!), but I'm wondering if they will break in and get better.

What's your experience in breaking these in?

 

By the way, while the toe shape is much rounder than the 2030 last, I was surprised as to how much shorter they are at the same size. The 2040 is almost like they took the 2030 and chopped the tip off!

Hey guys,

So this week I received my first two Vibergs.

Stoked as to how great they are. The finishing and attention to detail is like nothing I've seen before in workboot-inspired footwear!

 

The service boots (2030) fit quite well. These are in waxed flesh.

I'm now eyeing a similar pair, but in chromexcel. Everything else is exactly the same between the two styles.

 

Would you recommend going with the same size, or half down?

I'm wondering because in my experience chromexcel stretches very easily, contrary to waxed flesh (or almost any other kind of leather!)

But then, I don't know how the thick leather Viberg seems to use will perform over time.

 

Thanks!

I believe the waxed flesh is actually chromexcel.  If you're buying the same last, you should probably stick with the same size.

Agree with@jlchau. Get the same size.
