This is how I feel. Don't think I can get with the 310.

Make it in some kind of brown leather with a rugged sole and I'd probably be interested.

Don't care so much about the other details, I can do cap toe or no cap toe.

Wondering that too -- I always thought it was just the same as stitched-down, but maybe there is something more to it..?

 

  Nailed down is where the heel and vamp are all wrapped around the insole and nailed down, then the mid-sole is applied.  Usually its just the heel thats nailed then the vamp (leather) is stitched-down to the midsole. 

 

  Nailed down is the traditional work boot method.

Nailed it.

Anyone else interested in these for the rugged category?

 

Key specs are 110 scout boot with unstructured toe, black roughout on a black gloxi cut sole.

^ Those look more streetwear than rugged to me personally.

post #18187 of 19294

I haven't seen many suggestions for the Chelsea/Sidezip category, so here's one:

 

Side-zip Boot

2050 last

Natural roughout CXL

Natural split welt

Natural leather midsole/Vibram 700 outsole

Partial structured toe

Brass zipper (if possible, otherwise nickel)

6" height (again, if that's a variable we can play with)

 

Rationale: This is basically a modern cowboy boot for guys who ride motorcycles instead of horses. Three different natural leathers (upper, welt and midsole) will age differently and create beautiful contrast with the brass hardware over time. Roughout/split welt is a more rugged version of the suede/flat welt Viberg seems to favor for the 2050 last; personally I don't think the 2050 is sleek enough for such refined builds and going with a heavier leather and more substantial welt would balance the boot nicely. 

 

For anyone who rides this would be a great alternative to the 2005 Engineer - those are beautiful boots but super rugged for an urban setting. No laces to snag, easier to put on than a pull-on, and more secure than a chelsea that might come flying off under duress.

I just want to check in on the folks interested in a scout book makeup. Can we narrow down some specs and do some kind of rough roll call as to who would be in for that?

Why not do this stitch down? Is that possible on this last? I'd be seriously interested if it would be possible. If it must be GYW then I'll pass.

I have several of Viberg's "nailed construction" boots...They are extremely sturdy, to put it mildly....Here are my favorites again:

Hey guys I'm new around here to posting but I lurk quite often. I'm active over on /r/goodyearwelt on Reddit and wanted to expand my horizons. Here are my week old color 8s from Blue Button Shop.



All the GMTO talk has me excited.

If Viberg can do a 2050 boot with stitchdown construction that would be my first choice - I only proposed GYW because so far all the 2050 makeups have been welted and I somehow got the impression it was the only option.

     And your right about that, the Chelsea/2050 last will not be constructed as a stitch-down boot anytime in the near future if at all.

I think folks who want this boot want just this boot with no alterations.  So I don't think it will get made.


Its easier to post a boot one specific way (as pictured) then to try and cater to everyone's demands. We would get significantly less votes by having a boot with a cap toe, one without, one with brogue-ing, one without, natural cxl, black, etc... you get my point.

 

If people are willing to back a 310 boot it should happen as the millwright that we have lusted over. If not its just not meant to be.
