Might be the unstructured toe.

Plus, there are so many interesting new shapes and styles that I'd rather do.

Let me start by saying that I agree there is plenty of cool stuff and I'd love to learn more about side zips.

Honestly though, considering the huge amount of business and presence SF must bring Viberg, it sounds pretty ridiculous to hear you say that they'll punish you by ending the MTO program here just for asking for this or that spec. Sounds like a pretty unpleasant dialogue you must have with Brett or Guy or whomever.

I know you've said in the past that they don't need the MTO business and it's more a favor to this community than anything else. Well, I'm just being honest by stating that such a self-important condescending attitude makes me not want to wear their boots at all. And I've been at this for almost 5 years.

Why would people not like the toe? Is it not as round and traditional as a boot normally is?

I'm a pretty realistic, practical guy, and I am a decent negotiator.  Probably the most important thing I've learned is that negotiations are about relationships, not about a specific transaction, and also how to neither push too hard, nor get pushed around.  Different people have different ways of doing things.  That's a trite statement, but it also happens to be true and useful.

Fair enough. Do you have any preferences as of now for a style for the next round?

I'd ideally like to do 3 different styles with different tones.  

 

1) A Chelsea or side-zip in a grain side leather

2) A casual derby

3) A more rugged boot, maybe a hiker, a country derby, something like that.  Think of a Viberg take on an English country boot.

Not saying that. From what I've read here from some posters, their preference is a partially structured toe vs. an unstructured toe.

 

I think the boots look great and the 1035 is my favorite last and fits me better than the 110 (although I like the 110 too). But the 110 is the more traditional boot shape from what I understand.

 

Most folks that compliment my boots couldn't tell the difference between a 1035 and a 110.

I just picked myself up some Vibergs for 25% from Brooklyn Clothing...it's not the deal of the century, but it ain't bad...they didn't put all their Vibergs on sale, and now most of the sale boots are gone...

Although I think they have been offering their more recent Vibergs in half sizes, some of their older models, as included in the sale, were only stocked in whole sizes. It is frustrating when stores do this, but it is fairly common.

That Brooklyn sale is/was insane. What did everybody pick up?

First wear. The soles are definitely thick and heavy. These bad boys will take a while to break in I'm guessing

Had been wanting a boondocker for awhile but never pulled the trigger so at US$417 felt it was the right time to get one. First 2045 so will see how it works out for me.
