Sure - i can edit (or delete my original post). wasn't sure what etiquette was given the rarity of the shoes. sorry about that!
Sounds like you got screwed. I would say the USPS/Canada Post owes you some money but I cant imagine that will be easy to accomplish.
The only time Ive done it (a couple of months ago) it worked out no issues - I wrote returned goods 20x all over the forms lol. Returned goods should never be hit with fees but who knows what happens in that vortex.
Closest I've seen to that from a stockist is the Palmer Trading Co Creeper seen here
Old run from Inventory. Another shot here - http://vibergboot.tumblr.com/post/63389564358/viberg-for-inventory-black-multi-tone-145-oxford.
It seems the market finally brought this about. No one was interested in GYW CXL boots and for good reason! I'm all for Viberg doing whatever they want in terms of experimenting, but since the whole point (according to them) was to allow for the use of supposedly more delicate leathers, it never made sense to me why they did a run of CXL on stitch down. Maybe for practice? Anyways, it's nice to the sexy classic lineup back on track.
