Thanks guys!

And I'm with b-ewing on this one, I'd wax them evenly for the same reason.

I like it. I think I would have done the reverse. However, I still think it looks great as-is or would look great if you finish waxing the whole thing.

This looks great, I might have done the reverse but it looks good.

Can you walk us through how you did it? Thinking of doing similar to my own boon dockers.

It was very easy to do. Morgan mailed me the wax (the smallest container was all that was needed), and I applied a light coat using my finger. I hadn't stained these boots at all, but always seem to get the toes of my other boots dirty, etc... So the waxing started as a way to protect them and darken them (and why I didn't do the reverse). Got the idea from a pair pictured on the viberg blog.

No, just a finger. The middle one works fine.

Am I only one who has difficulty in breaking in a pair of roughout oxford? I've been wearing mine for months & my feet still get blisters here & there once a while.

Same here. I got blisters on my heels with my 110 last oxfords, almost every time when I walked more than a couple miles in them. I think the problem for me is the weight of the shoe together with its height.

I then ordered another pair half size bigger and used insoles - these have worked far better.

Hi Guys! If you or know of anyone that are letting go any Viberg service boots size US8-8.5 kindly PM me on the details. Thanks in advance!

In my experience chaps, if the boot is causing that much pain/discomfort, it's either not the right last, or the right size for your foot.

The boots I'm selling were just half a size too small, and caused pain (nothing like blisters though). They just didn't feel comfortable on my foot.

The boon dockers I'm wearing now, in the correct size, were just comfortable from day 1.

The right last, the right boot, you won't even feel like you're breaking them in hardly.
