@IIIrd Icon Nice. On point as always - I have a pair of Chicago Tan Latigo service boots and I can't get enough of the color. I love the way the color varies dependent upon the light.







Awesome stuff. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Those of you who have purchased or seen the current Club Monaco Boondocker:
http://www.clubmonaco.com/product/index.jsp?productId=66437006

What last is that? Looks like either 2040 or 2045.

Is the toe structured?

Is Club Monaco listing actual Viberg sizes, or are they giving some "conversion"?

Thanks!

Those are 972 euros on the cm french web store. That's insane.

I didn't mean to cause anyone confusion. Every pair of Vibergs I've bought didn't list the UK size besides Rivet and Hide.

Just to clarify, only a single size is ever shown on Viberg boots, the "Viberg" size. It is not explicitly called the UK sizing, but it is equivalent, for all practical reasons.

Anyone have feedback on the Viberg Black Camel Service Boot? The hide is unique and seems like it would wear well.
Would you pick it for a good casual boot over black CXL or Black shell?

Thanks,

Steve

Sure, the confusion emerges when UK sizing does not match up with Viberg sizing. I'm consistently a 9.5 UK in most Tricker's lasts and a 10 in Viberg. There is no way I could squeeze into a 9.5 Viberg on the 2030 last, and I may even be TTS to wear anything but the thinnest socks.

The 2030 last, for me, is not that different from that 4497 last in Trickers (I am a 9.5 in both).  There might be a slight volume difference.  However, the real difference seems to be the thickness and rigidity of the leather that Viberg uses.  I have a pair of CXL shoes on the 2030 last, and they feel incredibly comfortable, even a bit loose, but the 9.5 in some of the heavier leathers is pretty stiff and uncomfortable.

Shrug, each person has their own experience. I think a lot of people are going to be buying boots that are too small for them following that convention though, just like I did.

I am a 10.5 C on a Brannock device. I found the 9.5 D in Viberg's 151 X CSA to be a touch short, as work boots are supposed to have a half inch or more length in front of the longest toe...the sizing is okay, but is not ideal. I later got some Viberg 251 X CSA in a 10 B that fit me much better. I do not know the last number for these work boots, or even if it's the same last between the two, as the 10 B doesn't feel much narrower at all than the 9.5 D.

The other thing to bear in mind is that the length should fit the heel-to-ball, not the total length of the foot. Although too short on total length is obviously not going to work, too long, within reason, is okay as long as the heel-to-ball length is okay...remember that many styles of footwear have long pointy toes...

Guessing one's size is very hit or miss. Without trying on the different sizes, it can be hard to know which will feel best for you. Of course, some guys have feet that do well in boots anywhere close to the right size, so the fine details don't matter to them...my feet seem to be sensitive such issues.

As an aside, I think it's sleazy to try on boots in a local shop with no intention of buying them there, if you're just trying to get your size right for ordering online. I also think it's sleazy to order boots from a shop with free shipping and free returns, if you're certain you're going to return them and buy them somewhere else. Of course, if you are genuinely thinking of buying from the local shop or the liberal-return-policy online vendor and then change your mind, that perfectly fine. Only you will know what your intentions are.

Oh you just got here tho!

Just order from .com, if the fit is not to your liking, return them.

There is a review over on Reddit. I ordered the Camel Derby which should arrive soon so can chime in on the leather as well when I get them

Breaking in my Tan horse hides today.

I am a touch sad that my gmto chukka on the 110 may be having to be put away soon...I just don't think I will be comfy with the thicker socks I have to wear to keep the heel from slipping in the warmer days. I have worn in at least 15 times now and for many hours per wear so I don't think any more breaking in will help it.

^ Nice tan Horse Hides.

 

Here are me black HH derbies from.com. They need some breaking in but they are pretty awesome:
