I'm going to see if Viberg would allow me to do a preorder starting at our Trunk Show.  I'd lobby for 2-3 makeups.  Not sure, other than that, what should be on the drawing board.  I was thinking one more rugged boot in a stitchdown, and another in something a bit more in line with their more "city" boots.  Maybe even another derby.  Thoughts, gentlemen?

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

 

Dig it.


Would love to see another derby.   

 

Rugged boot - maybe something that would go well with a mini-lug, or a sole not commonly seen on makeups.

How would you feel about a back zip a la Guidi?

Yeah. You is right.

Dudes the goat side zip is dope. Must be rocked with tight stacks though, so don't get into this if you can't follow through will the necessary degree of dandy-ism.

Seriously GMTO with a sexy smooth leather. Bourbon colored. I'll pay today!

Hmmm... I could see the side zip in that tan horse that I had from a while ago. That, IMO, was an incredibly beautiful leather, if they still have it in. A beautiful lustre (horse is like that)

I like Guidi, and wear it all the time, but IMO, Viberg's strength lies elsewhere.

Side zip is natty cxl roughout would be incredible or maybe that flesh side kudu we used a few years back

Never really been much into side zip boots myself.

Would prefer another derby or workboot, or even just a Chelsea.

Chelsea in non-black Camel hide👍🏼

I've got a couple of suggestions for a rugged boot.

 

The first would be something along the lines of the 4 Horsemen x Viberg City Hiker from 2011. It doesn't mention it in the link, but I recall it being an unstructured toe.

 

So maybe a Hiker on the 2040 or 1035 last, unstructured toe, no Thinsulate. I'd like a wedge sole, but a walking boot without cleats feels wrong. Perhaps something like Vibram Jankuat or New Boulder on a 3Sixteen-style stacked leather midsole, if Viberg allow it.

 

The second would be a Trench Boot. Fok suggested one in the last GMTO, but it didn't gain traction. I think that going with a wedge sole again (sorry, it's a fixation tonight), but something like a Gloxi Cut or Christy, could make for an interesting boot / trainer hybrid.

 

Lastly, if the GMTO programme happens again, then we really need to step up our sole game. The European and US Vibram Sole Factor catalogues have all sorts of weird and wonderful goodies in them. My favourite has to be the Christy in camouflage...

What sort of derby did you have in mind?

 

Would be nice to see something black, even CXL, with a brogue cap-toe, something we don't see a lot of.

Unfortunately a non-starter, since I think that that kudu ran out yeeaaaaars ago.  But I'll see what there is in stock.

A grey suede would be very fitting for the side zip. If we are going in that direction might as well go all out!

Don't get ahead of yourselves, guys.  Assuming I can get this to go through, I will present you with some leather options, and then you'll be able to discuss and debate among those.  The reason is that the leather inventory at Viberg is changing constantly, and I will not do a GMTO where we have to use leather that may or may not be available.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

I've got the derby in black horsehide(awesome!) & the reverse smoke kudu boot(thanks rydenfan for the inspiration), both on the 1035. Along with the half Japanese oxford Ebony Latigo on the 110 I dare y'all to come up with something way out there.
