Viberg Boots - Page 1147

Their GYW offerings are as well built as their SD offerings, to each their own. I prefer SD but I don't fault anyone for wanting their GYW; they have a lot of makeups that I wish were SD.

Nothing fancy really, 'cept for the 1035 Black Pit Tanned Bison Service Boots, w/c were freakin' fabulous , IMO.

Set versus the black leather sofa__ visible complex hues brought out by the afternoon light from the living room window just convinced me they're my new bbf smile.gif 'Fortunate to have handled Bison leather before, but not @same level of quality.

Had a short chat w/GuyFerguson & he said the tanning process is the same as on their famed + sought after shell cordovan. No quarter lining needed__ leather was as thick, if not thicker than the #HorweenCXL they use.

Fantastic pickups brownmetallic! I think I was in the store the same time as you were last Friday. I love the pit tanned bison as well and was hoping there was a brown bison boot in my size but if they had any they were already taken before I made my way in. It's hard to imagine next years sample sale will be as fruitful but one can only hope!

Anyone pick up the tan bison hunter in 7.5 and want to part with it, please let me know!

I would take a 7 if there is an extra around.

I just got my first pair of Vibergs yesterday. Bought these secondhand as I was quite unsure of the sizing. The length and width are great with thinner socks but the unstructured toe makes them feel a bit snug.

These are proper tanks! Definitely different than any Red Wings, Chippewas or British country boots/shoes that I own. The leather feels sturdy and hard wearing, won't probably need much caring. They feel like I can put them through hell without any remorse and they'll take it without flinching. 

The Christy sole is very worn and I'll have to resole these, maybe with Vibram 2021 or Dr.Sole wedges if my cobbler still has them. Might take a while to re-break these to my feet.

sample sale pickup with a little self modification

Maybe a silly question, but does Viberg do the sample sale every year in New York?
post #17198 of 19305
They have had one now 2 years in a row. Assume they will continue to have one, but I don't know for sure.

Akeem, I have those Cabourn collab chukkas also. What modification did you do?

Ah, looks great

A kind gentleman proxy'd these for me from this year's sample sale. Though, from the angle and fuzzy picture I had originally thought these were cap toe service boots.Turns out these are Country Derby boots, but the color is incredible. My first pair of Viberg's. 

 

Tried them on and the 2040 last these are on seems kind of odd? Fairly tight on my midfoot (which I assume will stretch with wear), though i have tons of toe room. Would a 2030 fare better in this instance? I know they're both E widths, but from what I've read the fit on a 2030 is vastly different.

The 2040 last is very different from the 2030. The 2040 has a very snug middle, but is roomy in the toe area. It is very much a workwear shape. I took the same size in the 2040 and the 2030, but prefer the 2040 for aesthetics and fit. It is a very much under utilized last in my opinion.

While it's true that their GYW feels very sturdy, knowing it's cemented construction just makes it inferior to me. I like the idea of the upper being stitched to the sole.
