The shoes or the post office? :rolleyes:

Trust me, USPS looks awesome in comparison to Auspost. Parcels can take a week to get across a city, and then there's a good chance that delivery won't happen because the postie couldn't be bothered.

I can confirm. Auspost is the worst postal service on the planet. They make Canada Post and USPS look like wizards. 

 

I get delivery cards 5 days after attempted deliveries, also if you work a normal job you wont be able to pick any items up at the post office (open from 9am-5pm) until the weekend (if your store has weekend pickup) on saturday between 930am-12pm.  "Your item is awaiting collection" 50% of the time the parcel is unavailable for pickup because they have been too "busy" to unload and organise what the posties have dropped off. 

 

I must say that the delivery lady in my neighbourhood is the sweetest lady

Well, wonders never cease...package delivered (even though the above site still shows the same thing).  These chukkas are great - exceeded my expectations.  They are very similar to the Route 10's in color, but the leather is much softer/more supple and the sole is not as thick.  They have a bit more of a dressy feel than the Route 10's, which feel more rugged.  The Viberg box lists the leather as Ebony Essex - not really sure what that is, but I like it a lot!  Here they are:

 

 

And compared to the Route 10's (bottom pair in photo):

 

 

Notice how the Route 10's look much more substantial and the Ebony Essex chukkas look a bit more refined.  I can't think of a better description for both than simply, "perfection".

 

Thank you Viberg and thank you 14oz.!

Is this/does this look like a normal amount of loose grain creasing? Just curious if anyone else had some on their mocha oil tan GMTO's. Probably a bit too late to do anything, but its started to bother me.

 

Also, has anyone had any pairs of shoes that are larger in one shoe than the other? I feel like i'm crazy but I've run into two pairs where one shoe is significantly larger than the other. It's definitely a shoe issue as the larger shoe coincides with my larger foot. I usually have a problem with tightness with the larger foot except for the two most recent pairs of vibergs.

Dude. Fuck. Yes! Those are amazing. Pretty much the chukka I've always wanted. Is that a partially structured toe?? From some angles it looks like the 2030. Can't wait till mine arrive today!

No offense to others here- but in my opinion those 14 oz chukkas render the MTO unnecessary...

Can you post more pics of those being worn? I am always concerned about the vamp and the way it looks...is that structured toe?

No, the toe is not partially structured.  And yes, it does look like the 2030 from some angles because the profile is more stealthy than the bulkier profile on the GMTO.  But it's all 110 baby!  

 

I don't think that these render the MTO unnecessary because they feel very different to me.  But I can definitely see how you might think so from the photos.  I would say that they complement the MTO though!

It's definitely a shoe issue as the larger shoe coincides with my larger foot. I usually have a problem with tightness with the larger foot except for the two most recent pairs of vibergs.

 

It's natural for leather to do that, most definitely.  I find that I get much more creasing like that when I'm kneeling down and bending my foot forward and from side to side, etc.  I remember wearing boots while I was cleaning out an office and by the end of the day, I had lots of creasing just from the way I was bending and moving all day long.  Yet on other pairs where I haven't put them through the paces like that, there is less.  It really just depends on how you wear them.  Some leather is a little more prone to creasing depending on the skin/cut.  But I wouldn't say those look bad, not by any means.  I think those look great actually!  

 

As to one shoe being larger than the other...I have never experienced a difference in length.  I have one pair where the width feels a little bit roomier on one boot, but nothing significant.  I attribute that to the handmade factor.  I think it would be odd for one length to be different, but slight variations in width don't seem all that odd to me.  Consider yourself lucky that the larger shoe coincides with your larger foot!  Sounds like it worked out perfectly!  I would also guess that your larger foot might be stretching it out a little more, which also wouldn't be all that unusual.

 

Enjoy those boots and wear the hell out of 'em!  They are just going to get better and better the more thrashed they get!

These both look really nice.   My 14oz shipment has been in customs for 9 days.   Looking forward to getting these, if it ever actually happens.   Anyone feeling like their GMTO Route 10s are redundant or want to trade for a pair of 14oz size 10 chukkas, I'm game.   I really like the chunkier look of the Route 10s better than the 14oz pair that I have coming.

So got my chukkas from 14oz! They must be an older style right? I assume they had them sitting around because they didn't even come in the usual grey box. They also had the orange Viberg tag that they don't use on "fashion" boots anymore.

Leather is very supple and tough. They REALLY look like icy mocha or even natural Cxl to me. Also- they come with a horween Cxl tag attached- though the box says ebony Essex. Maybe it's just another cxl color they don't use anymore?

Also, for the record, I never could have sized down .5 from my 2030 to these. I love the fit of the 110 - probably the most comfortable yet.

Have a look:
