Viberg Boots - Page 1032

post #15466 of 19290

The Ugg Vibergs look cool, but I suspect that Superdenim won't have them in my size.

 

I've long been a fan of the pair of deerskin boots that they did as a sample. I might have posted these before, but they're completely unstructured. One for a GMTO?

 

 

The Mini Ripple sole looks like it's holding up well. I've been wearing my Sleek Hunters for about six months and some of the points are somewhat truncated. Bear in mind that I put 22,000 steps on them today...

does anyone know anything about the "mocha vintage" leather? Is it CXL? I'm curious about thickness, mostly.

Probably is but wouldn't they have done stitchdown if it were? That leather looks terrific so much character.

I like the look of these much better than the ones they just put out.  Leather choice makes a huge difference in seeing the pattern, at least in a photo.

I've got a feeling that the deerskin they used for the sample wasn't that practical, and hence they didn't run with the design. Maybe you could get a similar look using one of Viberg's softer leathers.

Know way to know, clearly they try a lot of stuff out to see if they like it, and if they think it will do what they want it to do. I was under the impression that deerskin was one of the softest leathers around, and not very practical for footwear (that is from what Ive gathered but Im no leather expert). I think it would look pretty nice in bison, horsehide or a latigo something stiffer rather than softer.  Ill be curious what they come out with in this design.  Im tempted by the ones they just put out but I dont think I would like it in the end.

Could someone help me out with how easily the toe of a unstructured 2030 collapses. I'm thinking about buying a pair of the Vintage Mocha. Do you think the Horween Vintage Veg tan leather will hold its shape well or should I get the partial structure Natural CXL from Lost & Found ?

Thanks God my size of mocha vintage is sold out I don't have to make decision whether to cop my first pair of gyw bergs.
Anyone recall that Bret will allow a GMTO of leather using stitchdown while the .con version is gyw?

Depends on the leather, they are not doing stitchdown with traditional calf or shell from what I gather....all cxl, bull hide, horsebutt, latigo, bison, etc are good for stitchdown

The next set of GMTOs, if there is a next set, will not be as wide open as previous GMTOs.  I'll not allow wide open suggestions.  Instead, I'll convocate a private "conference of the wise", of customers who have had extensive experience with Viberg, and who are understand both that necessity to work with Viberg proactively, to produce a much smaller number of boots that have been OK'ed by Brett.  After that, we'll do the votes, etc...

 

I think that Brett is tired of some of the bickering that goes on here, and the insistence on stuff that just isn't going to happen (5 eyelets, 10 eyelets, everything in stitchdown, etc..) and frankly, that makes my job really difficult as well.  So the initial wild west round that we have had, is just not going to happen again.  

 

I AM still dedicated to the collaborative process, however, and so, if the next GMTO happens, I may allow you guys to elect representatives, etc... who would represent your interests.  Essentially, we'd go from a direct democracy to a representative one.

Fair enough, I appreciate the transparency and the dedication to the process as best it can be given the circumstances.  Representative democracy is what we know best.  Look forward to hearing that it does in fact happen.  Regardless of certain perceptions I think everyone appreciates your efforts and even though I wasnt on the original order I am a proud owner of the HJ which may be one of the more unique badass shoes Ive got.

I hope the next set of GMTOs are Nailed Construction.  I just enjoyed a four-mile hike through mud and melting snow in my 151xCSAs.  These boots are such a pleasure.  They are a bit on the heavy side, but I appreciate the solidity.  I'm not sure which last they are on, but it is very authentic, very original, and masculine in a certain, indescribable way.  Regarding color, I feel black is the new black.  I think where the debate could come in is whether we use Vibram 100, 100F, or 100R?  It makes a big difference to have the red or white marking on the sole.  Or, would there be some wild guys who would insist on 100 H(oney)?

 

:-)

Once we got told the rules we played inside if them. Which is perfectly fine and we came up with cool builds.

Last time a lot if crap happened from finding out we could not do stitchdown on some leathers to different soles etc.

This time should be pretty easy...here is the leathers for stitchdown, here is the leathers for gyw...here are the styles available...and away we go.

I learned what I know about Viberg and what is possible from the GMTO's. Good immersive therapy to the point that I can make a laser fast decision now on a a pair of boots. I went from none to 5 pairs in a year....So lets get going.
post #15480 of 19290

It would be cool if a pair or two of non-2030 was reserved for nomination, should things go forward.

 

Regardless, having a clear set of rules from the get-go is a no brainer.
