3sixteen so so close to a homerun with this navy latigo roughout scout boot except for it being on the 2030. The storm welt is cool, but stichdown dope too.

@stickydonk Are you just not a fan of the fit of the 2030 last? And I agree, I usually associate Viberg with stitchdown construction, but the natural welt looks great on that design.

With regards to the derby, what about something more classic, like a "semi-dressy" 1035 derby version of the 316 stealth boot.

@LA Guy wants to use the Vibram Mini Lug sole, and also do a more dressy Derby boot. So why not combine the two?

 

If you look at a Commando sole, the lugs are set back from the edge, which means that they're hidden from view at normal angles. The Mini Lug will be the same, and unless you get down on the ground, would appear similar to something like a Dainite sole.

 

 

I think that a build along the lines of the Box Calf Derby, could work. For example:

 

  • Country Derby Boot.
  • Italian Horsehide, Box Calf, or other dress leather. Maybe even Kangaroo.
  • 1035 or 2030 last.
  • Vibram Mini Lug sole.
  • Blind eyelets.

 

It'd be a slightly more rugged dress boot, but that'd be a fun twist on the idea.

How about the Trench Boot? (Apologies for the bad Photoshop job.) There are a lot of Service and Scout boots with a wedge sole, but no-one has done it on that pattern yet. Something like the 1035 last might soften the toe a bit.

Since people are talking about a black boot on a wedge sole, how about the Pachena Bay? Just working through my hiking boot fixation in public...

 

Created with GIMP

 

The other thing that might be interesting is the Vibram EcoStep sole. It's made of recycled rubber. It'd look good paired with a natural leather.

These are looking great! If i'm remembering right, you re-dubbed these or what that someone else?

 

Its the first cool day here in NYC that actually warrants wearing boots. Pretty pumped to get all of my neglected bergs out of the closet.

I'm all about this sole since I first saw it a while back on a re-sole job over on GYW. Is it called Vibram mini lug or the 430? Looks the same as the resole job linked below.

Yep, something on that sole would be sweet.

The 2030 is way overdone. Just about every boot they produce is on the 2030. Sprinkle in a 2045 like twice per year and a 1035 every few months but that's all. People seem to like that 2030 but it's not for me when I think of a boot. Regardless, the 2030 3sixteen scout boot with that storm welt looks great, and the storm welt beefs it up a bit more.

Looks good. Leaving the 2045 toe unstructured makes the toe bump less pronounced.

That's correct, I dubbed them to gain water resistance. It worked like a charm and the nap even came back over time. For reference, this was out of the box:

 

 

 

I love the all (brass) eyelets. Most of my Aldens have a combo of eyes/speedhooks. I much prefer the look of all eyes.
