Quick pic as I'm wearing them today; as I am... Most days now to be honest, even sold my Alden Indys last week as they get zero wear now I've got these and more Vibergs incoming.


Fantastic looking boot. A bit more rugged than the 2030 last. I bet they'll get/look better with every wear.........thumbs-up.gif

Thanks chaps, loving these boots even more as they get some wear and tear.

Arizor, are the vamps lined, or is the whole upper unlined?
post #1744 of 7527
rough-outs are usually single layer.
smooth inside, so no need for lining.
however, suede/nubuck in another matter.
post #1745 of 7527
I'm assuming its totally unlined, which would be consistent with original service shoes/boondockers. However, wanted to check. Few boots look as badass as a well-worn pair of boondockers! Hopefully someday ill get a pair...

These are looking great!

The vamp is always lined. It's an integral part of the construction actually. The rest of the boot only gets lined if the leather is soft/thin enough to need the extra support, though some people custom order it for aesthetic reasons too.

Thanks Guy, and yes he beat me to it b-ewing, lined vamp, they feel beautiful on, even from day 1 it was like a pair of slippers.

edit: asides from the tongue, being CXL, needs a few days to break in and soften up!

Arizor, how did you size the 110? I believe you have both the 2030 and Aldens. I would love to know how you sized relative to each. The boots look great!

Arizor - which last (110 or 2030) fits better & more comfy for u? I have an Oxford in the 2030 last & is eyeing another pair, but it's on the 110 last. Hence, a little on the fence. I do not like it too roomy & I heard the 110 fits like EE in Alden. I have narrow feet.

Hey guys,

Rydenfan - The 9.5 Vibergs I'm selling are on the 2030 last. They are half a size too small. In fact my left foot is half a size bigger than my right (10.5vs10), so they're really a size too small for my left foot, but with a bit of stretching a 10 in 2030 would fit me fine.

My 110s are size 10. Fit like a glove from day 1, my left foot is definitely filling the boot lengthwise, maybe a tad much, but absolutely no discomfort.

Dino19 - I have narrow feet (as a size 10.5 Viberg my left foot is still only 10.8cm in width).

The 2030 fit lovely, the 110 are roomier but a beautiful fit too; no slippage at all.

To summarise: I would take the same size in both 2030 and 110. The 2030 are longer, but the 110 are wider. If you're comfortable in a particular size on one of the lasts, choose the same size for the other last, you should be fine.*

*disclaimer - no two feet (even on the same person) are alike, so take this for what it's worth.

Arizor what is your brannock sizing?

Any other boots and their sizes?
post #1755 of 7527
I would like to add that, from my personal experience, for some people with high arch feet (myself included), the major problem with the 110 last is not that its too wide, but that the front part is a bit too low.

After seeing these lovely boots on the official website, I am becoming quite interested in the (new?) 2045 last. If people could share some experience that would be great. Thanks
