Viberg Boots - Page 1062

post #15916 of 19320

Viberg hit it out of the park with these Chukkas!  Here they are side by side, Aged Bark on left and Route 10 (natural CXL grain side) on right:

 

 

My first impression is that they feel a lot like mini boots, which I guess a chukka is, but these are especially heavy duty/chunky and I suspect people will think you're wearing boots under those jeans...which is a good thing!  They look amazing, feel rugged and you are definitely not seeing anyone else wearing anything like these, that's for sure!

 

Some more of the Route 10:

 

 

And the Aged Bark:

 

 

When comparing them to my original pair of aged bark chukkas with the dainite sole, this version definitely feels chunkier.  The sole is actually about a millimeter deeper and the heel is significantly deeper by about a quarter inch!  Definitely more boot like...

 

GMTO on right, original on left:

 

GMTO on top, original on bottom:

 

This is a reminder of why I love Viberg so damn much (not that I ever need a reminder of that!).  No one makes 'em like this!

I'd bet money they are 110.  That's exactly what all my 110 chukkas look like.  No way it's 2030 or 1035.  Leather is Copper Task according to the site.

I'll take your word for it on the last- but copper task? I've never seen it look like that. A quick Google search shows it to be a lot more orange. Who knows! 14 oz pretty much imagined every detail they list so maybe I'll end up with purple boots.

Yes, it is a warmer brown.  I'm guessing their photos aren't accurately reflecting the tone.

Black CXL horsehide engineers would be dope

One note on the 110...so far I can see why some drop a half size. I wouldn't change size though as I prefer a thicker sock. I think being unlined also gives them a touch looser feel.

On the 110, my Chukka's feel looser than any 2030's or 110 Oxfords or Service Boots, with a little heel slippage. I think its related to fewer lace holes and their positioning. Very thick socks help.

I would not be able to size down due to the shorter length of the 110 compared to 2030.

The black bison Engineers on the Viberg site are probably more interesting.

To those with narrow feet, does the heel slippage tone down as the boot breaks in? I have C width feet and the heel slips even when i fully tighten the laces at the top few eyelets.

What last are you wearing?

 

I have C's and have yet to order a pair.

 

A separate fit thread would be welcome.

No desire for a leather with creases/wrinkles embedded all over it. Interesting leathers like bison/ostrich/gator/snake/unicorn not my cup of tea. BUT! I'm down for another engineer in Tobacco Chamois w/ partial toe

Those look great Raneleigh.

Looking at the colors, and I haven't gotten my Route 10's yet, I'm sorta wishing I got the Aged bark instead. As the Route 10's,and correct me if I'm wrong, look to be a color match to the brown latigo half Japanese and garage boots.

Is that so?

This is the reason I am trying to sell my coffee chromepaks.  The heel slips and rubs the skin raw if I walk around too much on them.

I've had discussions with Guy about this specifically. Also, I've worn the same pair long enough and frequently enough to know:

The heel starts to heat up and mold to your foot the more you walk on it. With time slippage reduces significantly. I have very narrow heels and skinny ankles, so I know what you're going through. I would get some good socks (smart wool, darn tough, etc) and keep at it. Definitely don't wear thin cotton socks.

Would it help to place heel pads? Maybe even tongue pads?

Amazon sells em.
