Good GOD those boots are beautiful.

Those shells were the pick of the litter on the sample sale.

Could you post a pic of the saddle shoe in a little better light? I would like to see the welt and edge trim color a little more clearly.

Anyone have shots of either the black horsehide or black Scotch-grain cordovan service boots from the new website?  I'd like to see them in the wild, and maybe with a little wear...

For the 2030 last, how does width compare to Alden Barrie?

Here you go:






If anyone is interested I can post shots of the shell boots in natural light as well. Anyone interested?

From my personal experience it depends.

For the saddles shoes an 8 in the 2030 last works perfect.

However, for boots I go with an 8.5 and the fit is spot on.

For reference, I do pretty much the same thing with Alden shoes. 8D in Alden barrie lasted shoes and 8.5D in Alden barrie lasted boots. I think this is because with my barrie lasted shoes I wear thin dress socks, whereas with the boots I wear medium weight socks (usually anonymous ism socks). For reference, I measure a true size 9D on the brannock.

Hope that helps.

My pleasure! I really like them as well. My wife usually HATES saddle shoes, but she actually likes these ones. I think they are a good mix of prep and rugged.

Thanks, can't decide if I should go 10 or 10.5UK

Normally 10.5 or 10E Barrie
10E Trubalance

This hinges upon whether you wear thick or thin socks in your 10 Trubalance, since you will need to wear thick socks with your Vibergs, dress socks won't cut it.

If you wear thick socks in your 10, then order the same in Viberg.

Basically Trubalance and Viberg's 2030 last fit very similar to me (in terms of sizing, both have differences in shape).

For reference: I'm 10 in Trubalance, 10 in 2030 and 110 Viberg.

10E works with thicker socks, but seems like a lot of people feel 2030 is pretty narrow?

I think the narrowness may be a bit overstated. To add on my earlier post, I wear size 8.5D in my trubalance lasted Alden Indy boots, which I feel fit the same as my size 8.5 Viberg 2030 lasted boots.

Are you looking to do a mto, or order something from the web shop?

"Narrow" is relative, in this instance to Viberg's other lasts.

It's not narrow when compared to Alden lasts at all.
