Aesthetically, I think those look fucking amazing. Unique, elegant, but also maintaining a sort of workwear vibe.

Perhaps they'll be slightly cheaper??


I have a feeling they will age well. 

However, I am not convinced they will be any cheaper, as the materials will be similar in cost. 

I think they are definitely interesting. I don't know if i would plunk down that much on a pair though.

Am I missing something about the reverse shell as far as the appeal? What does this turn into over time?

I have a Viberg chukka I got from Barneys and that's size 9.
Palmer has the creeper in size 9. I'd buy them but if they don't fit I'm either stuck with store credit or I'd have to sell them - probably for a loss.

I don't care if they are a little loose, better that than too tight.

thanks for any help

I have always wanted a reverse shell makeup...ever since I got a shell wallet...cheaper...well clearly you can used flawed shells...or shells that would only be used for black...so in theory it could be cheaper.

The blind eyelets and having to use round laces is a major drawback for me. Very cool idea though.

Here is what I see with this make up: with the reverse side being outside and adding a cap toe Viberg saved some cash by getting less expensive lower quality shell (sold in smaller sq. ft., different colors and second quality as sold by Horween) since its assambled with the ussually imperfect side out it really doesnt make a difference what type of shell was used. But to me it will be an insult if this boots go on sale at their regular shell price range of about $1100 to $1200. Hell I thing the horse butt was a better leather and boot all together and was priced at $900, thats just my 2Cents.

I'm sure it's a conspiracy there Mulder but more importantly why would anyone buy reverse cordovan except maybe if you own every other kind of boot and you are all IDGAF I'm rich.

I did. It's actually around the same cost if you order from NA without free shipping. You don't get hit with customs coz nafta

Really interesting reverse shell boots. One of the very few GYW models from Viberg that look good. And the simplified stitching on the toecap is a welcomed improvement.

Too bad they are on the 2030, but Viberg doesn't seem to do anything else lately.

Looking forward to see how they age.

I really don't get the appeal of reverse shell. There are pages and pages of posts on SF that are slavishly devoted to the virtues of shell. Why buy a boot (and likely a very expensive one) that completely hides the shell side. Seems incredibly ass backwards (literally and figuratively).

I would of thought the same thing until like I said earlier I got a shell wallet and everytime I open it I think how cool the reverse side is, it takes on almost a nubuck texture as it ages in the flex spot...that being said the reverse side of the wallet is a uniform color. If this would have been built on something like the 2040 or 2045 I probably would have bit.

I like the Layer-0 I've seen in reverse shell. It is a completely different leather. i said it above, like Kahuna, it doesn't work for me on the dressy 2030.
