I do not. I only have 2030 and fit in the 8 comfortably. For reference, I am a sz 9 brannock. Is the 2040 a bit roomier?

In the foot bed, yes, because it's more of a round-toe workboot.

I think you should stick with the same size for 2040.

Anyone happen to know what last the older Bobcats were on..?  Are they their own last..?

post #15320 of 19590

I think the bobcat is it's own last, I've also seen it referred to as a style though. I really hope it's available in future GMTOs

I wear a 9.5 in 2030 and 1035. I bought a 9.5 in the black 3sixteen roughouts and had to get rid of them. Idk why but they were tight as hell across the instep compared to my other vibergs

The aged bark roughout looks and feels amazing......I really like the color and texture of this leather.

 

Cultizm was great to deal with.....15% discount and no additional fees upon delivery!

 

 

After trying both boots on, I am afraid that the fit on these might not work.

 

If anyone is interested in them at my cost (15% discount) please send a PM.

 

They are size 11d.

 

Otherwise, I will likely be sending them back soon.

Were they too big? I'm selling a pair of Notre natty cxl right now in 10.5....

As an additional point of reference, I'm a 9.5D/9E (L/R) on the brannock and my 2040 WF derby boots are a size 9.  They fit very comfortably with medium-weight socks.  I had some size 8.5 2030 service boots that I sold because they were too tight across the toebox for my 9.5 foot.  I feel like the 2040 is slightly narrower thru the heel and waist, compared to the 2030.

 

If you have low-volume or narrow feet, I bet an 8 would be ok.  If you have wide/high-volume feet, an 8.5 might be more comfortable.

I have 2 pairs of Bobcats from 2011 - both on the 110 last.

The older Scouts were also on the 110, along with the 145 Oxfords.   The 110 used to be everywhere.   I'm hoping those new Ropers that VB is coming out with will be on the 110.  

post #15327 of 19590

Have three pair on the 110 like everything about them, the look, fit etc. It's one of the things that drew me too Viberg

 

Enjoy

Yeah, I just bought the 110 Red Dog Roughout scouts from The Bureau Belfast, and I love them. Definitely will be holding onto them forever. I wish there were more 110 scouts out there nowadays. I'd be happy to just have nothing but them.

Of the Truebalance pairs I have, I wear dress socks and with Vibergs only on the 2030. If your Alden Truebalance boots are shell, keep in mind shell is almost always looser than the non shell equivalent.

Id prefer to have a little extra room in the front and adjust with a sock rather than risk tightness in the vamp, I have not gotten heel slip in any of the Viberg boots I own.  I'm a believer in toe space I dont ever want to feel the front of a boot with my toes, I care more about arch length and width then I do length (relatively speaking). And while there is some "break in" for everything, I don't subscribe to the buy it tight so it will break in to your feet approach, I think they should feel pretty comfortable out of the box.  Alot of posts I have read would put me in the minority there, I believe. Every new boot will loosen a bit after the first couple of wears or if you stick some decent shoe tress in over night so your first try on will definitely be the most snug but if it is legitimately uncomfortable to any degree Id be concerned.

Different patterns can also make some boots/shoes feel different even if lasted on the same size and shape.  I have never owned or tried on the country derby pattern so I really couldnt give an opinion based on experience. For instance, I find the low toe profile of the 2030 to be less than ideal for my foot, it is my least favorite last but the only cordovan boots available and I have not even tried to get another pair on the last few shell releases: 1) I gave up on trying to click fast enough;2) the 2030 and 3) I dont care for the GYW offerings.

*Side note would be 1/2 size is roughly 3/16 of an inch in length and there is variability within that basic rule of thumb. I have pairs on the same last that are marked the same size and they arent the same internal length, yes internal.  In an ideal world you would be able to try on multiple pairs +/- half and decide what felt better in that moment.  I have definitely bought different sizes in the same last from the same manufacturer because it is not as uniform as we would like to think.

Basically that is a long way of saying I have no idea. Hope that was of some use.

Thanks for the detailed reply, makes sense. I think they're going to be too tight and the 10 has now gone so I'll wait for next time.

These will be going back to Viberg unless anyone here wants them, they're also sold out in this size - I'll do them $700 plus shipping.

Just bought my 2nd pair -- black waxed flesh service boot from Notre w/ partially structured toe.

They seem to be significantly longer than my SF GMTO Natty Chromexcel service boot with an unstructured toe

 

Does the partially structured toe make that much of a difference?

Is it also because they are brand new and the unstructured are significantly worn in.

Either way, I don't mind the more elongated look of the new boots.

 

Curious if anyone has had the same experience. 

Thank you

TB
