Wow. It's a shit kicker for sure. Hard to believe it will remain the same color throughout time but I guess that's how it might be.

Sorry mixed up the Blue Collar Garage Boot (mocha) with the Blue Collar Shit Kicker (black oil). They're really similar just different leather.

I've got the brown sh*tkickers and they need a cleaning this weekend so I'll snap some pics. I wear them pretty regularly and abuse them hiking sometimes. Not babied at all, they certainly don't need it.

I am looking forward to your pics.

 

I've been using and abusing my fat waxed like you guys are with your Garages.

 

I'm on the fence on whether or not to sell my pair of Garages. I've only worn them once so I haven't given them any workouts.

 

What to do - what to do.

This might go against the trend in the Viberg thread, but if you've already got a "heavy brown workboot" that you're satisfied with in your wardrobe, you probably don't need another. I wouldn't pick up a pair of waxed flesh service boots for precisely that reason, myself.

Yeah...I had ordered the SF GMTO Garage boots and then subsequent to that, I believe that the parameters of the Fat Waxed boot changed from the original outline in the GMTO and I went for those too.

 

Plus someone posted a pair of aged/weathered brown waxed flesh boots and they looked amazing.

 

Have your Garage's changed shade at all?  From what I've read from other posters here, they have not lightened even with a lot of rugged use.

Nope they've stayed essentially the same shade except where they are scuffed and are a tiny bit lighter. I'll try to capture this on camera.

Too many brown boots? NEVER THAT!

The color difference between the F.W.'d and the Garage's is easy to see.

 

They aren't as redundant as I first thought.

Is there a place where you can order the service boots and be able to return based on if sizing isnt right? I have a medium to wide foot and I am really curious to try a pair of these boots

@justinkapur Mr Porter has free returns

You can return/exchange at viberg.com but the return expense is on you. IMO, it's still worth it to get the right fit. I got lucky and sized down .5 from Brannock and 2040 & 110 lasts fit correctly. I have slightly wide feet but still measure a D. I haven't tried the ubiquitous 2030 last as it's narrow compared to the others that fit me well.

I have 10E feet and wear 9.5 in most of their lasts with thick socks well.  I could wear 9 in the 1035, I think, but not with thick socks.  I think 9 for sure for the 110 for even thick socks.  2045 -- 9.5 is fine with thick socks.  The stitchdown 2030 are fine in 9.5 with thick socks.  GYW 2030 are tighter, don't think I could do 9 in that size.
