Barring viberg custom, could always get white's semi-dress w/brown horsehide and dress toe cap on the 461 last.
Should be pretty similar and comes to about $555.

is there another email to send a foot tracing to? sent one to morgan but havent heard back
post #1624 of 4402
I just realized that Fok had said to send tracings to morgan@viberg.com, but that address does not exist. Morgan can be reached at either mto@viberg.com or morgan@workboot.com. Sorry for the confusion.

Wow. Fail on my end.

Sorry all.
post #1626 of 4402

That would get you pretty close...  I like White's a lot, but I have to say, I got a sample of their brown HH and have seen pics as well and it just does not come across nearly as nice as the brown HH Viberg used on these boots (which I've seen in person).  But then Viberg doesn't seem to have any more of it, so what can you do...

Isn't the answer obvious?
COMPLAIN LOUDLY ON THE INTERNET.

Loud complaints are one of the pillars of the internet, along with pr0n. The main difference is that no one looks for the complaints.

Found this video on Viberg.  Hope you enjoy

post #1631 of 4402

I enjoyed the video. It is interesting to know that brass nails make leather last 10 times as long. Thanks for sharing.

post #1632 of 4402
I think that's a bit of hyperbole, though well-intended. As brass doesn't rust it definitely means you've got a great chance of your boots lasting longer, but there are many other factors that feed into longevity; issues of sourcing and construction etc. Luckily Viberg seems to have those covered too.
post #1633 of 4402

Agreed.

post #1634 of 4402
Nice video, really need to get a pair soon
post #1635 of 4402
Just thought I would share some more shots of my pick-ups from the the sample sale.

Here are the hand-cut mahogany shell service boots on a danite sole and 2030 last. Really happy with these. Haven't worn them out yet, just waiting for some cooler weather to arrive:








And here are the calico grey and waxed flesh saddle shoes on a danite sole and 2030 last. I took these to my cobbler and had the brass eyelets added. I think it adds a nice pop to the shoes. These have gotten decent wear over the summer:
