Viberg Boots - Page 107

post #1591 of 7230

I have a pair of 1950 Service Boots, 310 last, in 10.  Normally I wear a US 10 (maybe slightly wide), and these feel like about a 10.5 to me.  (So about a half size bigger than normal, but width is just right.)  I have a pair of blue Powerstep insoles that work very well. I've tried several others, including the yellow Superfeet insoles which are made for higher heels, but the Powerstep is the best for me. They are available all over the place online, about $35.

I'm receiving the boon dockers in size 10, but not sure if they'll be a bit big for me, so might have to use inserts.

If anyone owns the 110 last I'd be happy to hear your thoughts on how they fit in relation to other last/brands.

Hi

I am not familiar with shell cordovan boots in general and Viberg boots in particular. So i would kindly need some help.

The boot shown on the two following pictures looks very different although I thought that it is the same shell cordovan Viberg service boot. Dull on the first one while shiny on the other.

Is it the same which looks different due to the different pictures?
Or two different kind of leathers?

Please let me know your opinions.

Thx & rgds,

Chris

Both boots are made on a different last and leather.

 

First boot you linked is  http://viberg.com/collections/footwear/products/service-boot-black-horse-butt as you can see its on a 2045 last and Horween's Black Workboot Horse Butt leather

Second boot is  built on a 2030 last and it is shell cordovan leather, I posted a few pictures of them on my feet just look at my profile pictures titled Viberg. They look amazing in person I do not have any buyers remorse spending $900 on them.

I have 2 pairs of Viberg. Both are MTO, 1950 Service Boot Natural Aniline CXL 110 Last size 8 and 145 Oxford Icy Mocha Ripple sole 110 Last size 8.  Yes It fit very comfortable, my feet are 26 cm height, 11 cm width.

 

Likewise, I had talk to Jason before and he provided me this.

 

310 last (called a sprung toe or turned up toe)
available. In E width (sz 6-13) and D-width (sz 3-9)
 
2040
last. This last has a bit of a subtle bump at the toe in a D-width approx.
 
The 2045 last is very much the same as the 2040 but this last below is not as narrow or shallow. 
 
2030 dress shoe style last.
Very shallow toe box area and is only available with E-width and the size range:
size 6 to 13.
 
110 last which has a flat feel to it with about E/EE width and 
has a lower heel height and thus a lower arch in terms of support.
 
160 last which is our non-steel toe workboot last with a EE width and a higher heel height resulting in much better arch support.  The higher heel makes this last way less popular since most people want lower heels like most of our boots.  We have AA, B, D, EE and 4E widths available to make, EE is our standard width.
 
This information I had received on May 25 2013
 

The latest information that you can use for making a decision could be this one either. (I was looking in the Viberg's webstore and I would like to know the width of each last they are using on Viberg boondocker, Service boot black horsebutt, Service boot black scotch grain and Harness oxford. and this info are from Guy).

 
 The 2030 is the narrowest and is a single E width.  The 2045 is about a double E and has a munson style shape.  The 110 is the widest of the three and the roundest.
 
sorry for my english guys, hope this help :)

Thanks for the very useful info all.

Me length is 29cm and width is 11cm. So I think my length is good for size 10 on the 110 last but the width will be too much...

They should arrive tomorrow so I'll let you all know.

I've been thinking about this 1950s service boot make since I saw it. Any interest?

More of a work boot look, dress cap toe, brass eyelets.

post #1597 of 7230
As mentioned in the other thread Meso, great looking boot.

I'm also very partial to the Burg & Schild collab with Viberg, which I'd love to see available for Styleforum x Viberg Round 2!

Anyone know what last these boots are on?

post #1598 of 7230
I think that these are on the 110 last. It's a little difficult to tell from this angle, but it really looks like the 110 last.
post #1599 of 7230
Thanks Fok, here's a better angle:

post #1600 of 7230
Those look like 110s, but they look more bulbous in the toe than do mine. Could just be the angle, or maybe the difference is because they have construction in the toe?
post #1601 of 7230
Yes I think it's a partially constructed toe giving them that slightly bulbous profile, which I quite like.
post #1602 of 7230
I'm thinking about a service boot on the 2040 last for next time preferably in a dark brown leather (something like the smooth brown oil tan); something to kick ass and chew bubblegum

Jumped on the cinnamon roughout makeup - I think we need 1 more if anyone is on the fence.

For next round, I was thinking a service boot in a burgundy French calf. Anyone else interested? I think it would look stellar.

We need to see what French calf is available before we make any possibilities. I think that I will ask Guy for a list of in stock or easily obtainable leathers, and we'll take it from there, for the next round.

We need just one more order for the Cinnamon roughout boots to get those into production for you guys. The next person to order them will also get the additional $25 incentive as one of the "early adopters", so if you are interested, you should order now rather than later.

Cheers,

Fok.
