Viberg Boots - Page 1199

post #17971 of 19302
I dont believe that I posted these...I picked these up from the owner who never wore them for a great deal. I probably would have never spent full retail for this style as just didnt think I would like it...wow is all I can say...this is the Leffot Peanut Bull hide from I believe 2010...from what I recall the owner asked for and got this special red interior lining. I dont know if all hikers are eee wide but these are.

I had to watch a video to learn how to tie these and actually have adopted some of those ideas with some of my other boots.

These are amazingly comfortable and will be in the rotation with my AE LongBranches and the Viberg Horse Butts as my go to any weather boots.

I would strongly suggest adding one of these bad boys in the next SF GMTO voting rounds.

I have these tied very loosely in the pic below but when snugged the look a little sleeker...which is relative with this style...lol

Dang, those are funky cool.

The Hikers are cool, and I love the red lining. I'd be up for a GMTO pair.

I was very tempted by the Mr Porter roughout ones, but was unsure how compatible the Thinsulate lining would be with the Aussie climate. Not very was my suspicion...

Anyway, someone bought the sole pair in my size, so the problem resolved itself.

Depends on the rating of Thinsulate used. I learned a little from Danner Boots. They make the same boots with different Thinsulate ratings for different climates. I think it goes 800. 1200, 1600. I believe the 800 is for Hot.

Wanted: size 9 or 9.5 in these oh so cool (and oh so sold out) Iron Heart X Viberg scout boots. Please make more like this, Viberg! Maybe with a black mini ripple. And better yet... with a nice olive or tan duck canvas. (Photo Credit: Iron Heart)

Those roughout hikers are amazing.

I need to see the Chelsea boots in real life before I can decide, some of the photos Ive seen make it look cool, and others do quite the opposite.  They only included that one profile shot, looks good. Something looks off to me on the toe for the Mr. P models where it meets the welt and I dont notice that issue on these.  I like the color 8 CXL fresh out of the box relative to the suede versions on Mr. Porter but Im not a huge CXL fan, and of the CXL I own natural is my preference. Jury is still out for me.

Hard pass. I think they are unnecessary and get caught on your pants, and the Alden ones I have used bend, rip laces, and come undone a surprising amount of the time.  Ive never really understand the need for the "speed", my shoe tying process doesnt benefit from saving the 7 additional seconds to put up with these things.

The Alden speed laces eyelets are not well designed, possible reality when a shoe company chooses to make a dress boot.

 

Where Viberg uses a high quality thick rounded brass component, different strokes for different folks no doubt.

Yes, you've commented before on this.

 

I think in time and possibly with a bit more therapy you can certainly overcome this hurdle :)

 

Cheers,
