Viberg Boots - Page 1194

post #17896 of 19284
Looking good! Love the color of the mocha roughout, and the 2040 last is really underrated.

Well, variety is always nice.

 

I think the issue stems from the fact that most folks here have been following Viberg for some time, possibly have several of their boots, and have a sense of saturation perhaps with the 2030.  I get that.  At the same, however, Viberg is expanding its footprint to new vendors and potential customers who have not been overexposed -- so they are addressing/serving those new markets and customers with what they feel they do best -- or prefer to make.  Over time, I suspect, the variety will catch up.

I don't like blind eyelets so my local cobbler/cordwainer tweaked my fatty calf SBs a bit.

Well done! That looks fantastic. Completely agree about blind eyelets. Especially on boots. I usually completely ignore any offerings with that option. If I had a decent local cobbler, that might change.

I haven't see this pattern before, that makeup would definitely be unique!

If I didn't have these Grenson Kudu's I be into that.

The Trench Boot I used for the mock-up has an unstructured toe. Going to the 2040 last would make it less lumpy. The 3Sixteen Mini Ripple Service Boot uses the same leather and is unstructured, but lacks the bump.

It doesn't seem to have been used a lot in the past. End Clothing offered it in Chicago Tan Latigo earlier this year.

 

 

And Google Image Search brought up the awesome looking Pershing boot in the Viberg at Liberty thread.

 

 

It's not a commonly used design, and I think that's a shame, because it's one of my favourite styles. In fact I suggested it simply because there are a lot of Service Boots and Scouts on wedge soles, but a distinct lack of Trench Boots.

C'mon, you can never have too many boots.

Ha...Maybe.

 

If I sell my Mocha Oil Tan Garage boots I'll consider it!

Do they do custom orders?

Viberg? Not for a few years. The Styleforum GMTO program is kind of the last way to do it.

Did anyone pick up the seal brown tumbled horsehide boots?  Any reviews out there?

They will do a very limited number of customizations to their work boots, such as using a different work boot leather, different Vibram sole, deleting a steel toe, or non-standard widths. However, they won't customize their work boots to look more like their fashion/service boots.

I have a custom pair - very similar in make. Same leather, just in a 2045 last and leather bottom. 3-4 years old.
