wink.gif cool shoes man! You and I are the same size. Maybe we can help each other out.


Ha...At first I was saying, huh? It's inate in the leather...Ya got me.

 

Yeah, they are really cool shoes. They should prove very versatile.

I was obsessing a little over sizing on some MTO Vibergs I ordered a couple weeks ago. I hope they fit because they have already been cut. On the other hand, they seem to be moving through production quickly. I also hope they look good, as it is a leather I have never seen in real life. I can't wait to get them...I will definitely be posting some pics here!

I like Viberg work boots, which they will still make-to-order. I ordered a version of their 6" Foreman in Red Dog wih a non-safety toe, with a Vibram lug sole, in a B width.

Damn! B width! I would have to shave off s few toes. Sounds good. Red dog is thick, no?

Red Dog is thick, as are all the work boot leathers. As I mentioned I have never seen Red Dog IRL, but the smooth black cowhide and water buffalo have been very appealing...After the Red Dog, I will have to try exciting options such as "brown, "black pebbled," and "black rough-out."

I have only gotten nailed construction boots from Viberg, which are super solid...I am sure the stitch-down ones are solid too.

Work boots can be purchased in widths AA, B, D, E, EE, and 4E.

Of course, the work boots are also more affordable than the fashion-oriented line. Sometimes, they sell out of various models, but www.workboot.com (Viberg's original website) currently has a pretty good selection available. When I ordered in-stock boots, they arrived in Philadelphia from Victoria in about a week.

Red dog is a pretty boring leather, IMHO. It's dyed through, takes forever to break in, and doesn't have a whole lot of character.

I see where you're coming from, but I don't think red leather is boring at all just based on the fact it's...red. I love my Red Dog Roughout Vibergs. They probably won't age in as awesome of a way as the waxed flesh, but they'll always be special just based on the unique color. Whenever I wear them, they're the least boring part of the outfit.

I appreciate your sharing your view of the leather. I like the thicker leather for its practicality. Also, for whatever reason, I never have difficulty breaking in even very heavy boots.

As for the aesthetics of the Red Dog leather, I guess I will find out. I actually think I have simpler tastes in leather than many people. Leather that looks old before I have even worn the boots doesn't always appeal to me.

One thing that is clear is that very few people on this thread find the Viberg work boots very interesting. This is, of course, fine, but I find it a little surprising as so many people are interested in concepts like "but it for life" and "authenticity," which the nailed construction boots have in large quantities.

Hmm, well I didn't write that I thought it was boring because it's red.

Red dog doesn't have the characteristics I prefer in leather: pull-up type, more supple, and takes on character easily. Hence "IMHO" smile.gif

In any case, I would recommend handling red dog in person so OP can decide for himself if it's what he's looking for. Unlike a lot of leathers talked about here it's easy to find in a store.

Well, the boots are already getting made, so I can't change my mind now, but I will let people know what I think of the Red Dog leather.

@meso May I ask what some of your favorite leathers from Viberg are? Which ones do you feel they do the best job with? Which are most "special?"

X post from Zuriick thread. I also dig the thicker leather, and heavier work boots.

I have always viewed dyed through leather in a positive light...like latigo. Curious what about dyed through you don't like as I had not heard that mentioned before.
