Are you saying you don't have enough Understatesman rants in your life?

These Viberg 251 X CSA boots are so damn solid...truly wonderful. Note how many layers constitute the sole.

Also, note the beauty of that Viberg stitching. Plus, where else will you find 8 oz. water buffalo uppers. It has an almost nubuck quality.

Edited for typo.

In my opinion some of the members in this thread are not being fair to Brett.  I would certainly became frustrated if I see some other companies trying to "copy" my design, especially Brett has put in a lot of effort developing new makeup.  Viberg boots is innovative in terms of material, color, style and the combination of all the above.  You will be impressed to see the amount of work and samples/experiments to get to this point.  

 

I enjoyed getting his instagram updates to see what the company direction is.  I like Viberg boots because their innovation and creativity are based on decades of practical boot making experience.  To me they defined the casual boot industry with style and quality.  I understand Truman is a start-up company and to me they post no threats to Viberg because they're just starting to catch up on how to make a proper "Viberg" boot at a right price point.  It will take them a long long time (or never) to get to a leading role in boot industry.  Brett just stay focused and keep refining your product.

I wouldn't really care if Brett is a d-ck or not as long as the product is well made and priced fairly.

But if Viberg comes at me and demands to know why I tried to sell off my boots, then we have a problem.

Who are they to ask for a reason for why I decide to sell my things?

There seems to be some douchebaggery that comes with the product.

You are either ok with it or not.

So Viberg "came at you" and demanded to know why you sold your boots? Do tell more.

Yeah that is really odd. What's the story?

They weren't happy that I listed my boots on ebay for more than I paid after they replaced my defective pair. Asked me if I had anything to say in my defense. I explained why I listed and that I decided to keep them after all. I also told them I don't appreciate being questioned on what I do with my things after I paid good money for them.

To be clear, I think Viberg did me a favor by offering a replacement and I appreciate that. I never said their customer service was bad. I just think it's a bit d--kish to question me about it.

Ah these were shell boots, right? I agree with you that it's none of their business what you do, but on the other hand, by trying to cash in after they made it right you're inviting criticism. They are still a family owned company after all, I can see why they'd take it personally.

Why not just list them at what you paid?

if they don't fit perfect and you got a baby coming, why not cash in?

Oh, that's a little different, considering shell is difficult to work with and they re-made them for you. I can see that being a spirit of the game foul to a family-owned company.

His replacement wasn't an exact replacement either. He begged them to make it using natural shell instead of mahogany.
