In general, you should have at least 1/2" of space in the front. Depending on how elongated the toe is, it might even be 1" of space. A better indicator is where the balls of your foot line up with the flex point of the boot.

 

When I say almost,  I mean approx. 1/2" of space, so fit is pretty much spot on in terms of comfort/sizing all round. It was more addressing the points where some are recommending going a 1.2 size down on the 110, which would just not work for me, as the 110 leaves me no space to size down.

How would you even do that without ruining them?

That's what I was hoping to figure out.

Most boots I have that have pinking --- the stitching is so close to the pinking that it would be difficult to cut off (even if you could) the pinking without getting too close to the stitching.

 

I do have some boots that I would have preferred without pinking, but I've actually never thought of trying to have the pinking removed.  Does it bother you that much?  (not you @meso)

Never tried but cuticle clippers might be the right tool for the job.

Would you be so kind to post a top view picture of your boots in in the different last (110 2045, 2040, 2030) maybe side by side. This will help a lot of us new guys to see which last will best fit our needs. Thank you in advance.

I created an album comparing 2030, 1035, 2045, barrie, trubalance a year ago here: http://imgur.com/a/seEIl

 

I'm going to work on a new one add 310, 2040, and 110 plus additional makers soon.

On a size 10 a 2030 just looks too slim unless you have a cap toe to break it up.

I have 3 pairs on 2030 and 4 on 110 and Size 10 fit is almost spot on in both lasts - if anything, the length on the 2030 is slightly too long whereas on the 110 my big toes amost touches the end, so if anything i think i could go down 1/2 on the 2030 but have not risked it.

That Wax Flesh from Notre looked great, sold out out already in most sizes! It's a 10 you got right? Please let me know if you don't get on with it!

Does anyone know what Viberg charges for a sole replacement (daintite)?

Yes, the 10 is on its way, but to the UK. It's almost the boot i was waiting for, only thing missing is the pull tab.

I will let you know if they don't work out.

Here's some info on a recent resole experience from Viberg. $125 parts and labor + $25 shipping flat fee. Not Dainite, but at least some info...(This vibram looks great though, i would want to try it out myself)

Those are my boots. Dainite is the same price. I love the Vibram 430 sole. Traction is much better and it wears much better than my other dainite pairs.
