I might be interested in scout boots, as long as they are stitch down, not black, and not on the 2030.

In a similar vein to the picture posted above, I wouldn't mind some badass looking, dark colored, oiled "chamois" roughout leather.

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.

 

Yeah, I hear ya'.   What you described happened a few GMTOs back.  I think if there are enough of you who want this boot, then it will happen.  But as Fok said, it hasn't been pushed through before.  Which is why I asked if things like the 1/8 lowered heel (etc.) were deal breakers.  

 

The nailed down boot sounds pretty killer -- and I'd be more interested in a different build.

 

Wish you guys luck.

Can I ask how you know this? Are you affiliated with Viberg in anyway?

While still hoping a 310 survives I would like to make a suggestion, gauge interest in the side zip boot.  I saw the suggestion above and while I think it works, I suspect we will see many like it available from a retail store and I want to aim for something a little more unique to having a broader range of options.

 

I am thinking all black.  Black leather NOT CXL(TBD)

Flat welt - This and the Chelsea are the only style that in my mind look good in GYW(and Im running off the assumption this is the only way it will be done)

Black midsole

Black outsole/Vibram 700 or Leather - yes leather, old school

 

I realize almost everyone wants some kind of brown boot, and there are many options for that, but imagine something non-brown for a moment.  Looks good on a motorcycle, appeals to the goth ninja or just a guy on a date in a pair of jeans at dinner. It would have the profile of the black boot below in the picture:

 

 

 and Im thinking in a unique leather like horsehide, goatskin or camel.  Something that gives it a bit more unusual texture but maintains the sleekness of the boot.

I'm in for a black side zip in horse or something cool. Leather sole all the way.

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

 


Put that on a 2045 with unstructured toe box so it's not bulbous and I'd be down. I've yet to see a scout boot on a 2045 so that would be different IMO. That contrast stitching is dope too. Not sure if it's red stitching, white, or what?

 

It appears to be an oiled rough out leather just like fyi...looks pretty sick

That bottom pic is a nice black boot. 1035's?

 

They look great with the black midsole with dark cherry? and leather sole. Like it...Very nice.

 

Viberg had nothing like that which is why I bought the black HH derbies. All black with brown peeking through the sides of the leather on leather sole.... On the 1035 meatloaf last. :slayer:

Ooooo cherry! Cool idea. Hopefully there will be enough street ninjas and fancy boys to get some momentum behind this one.

Yeah boyee.

 

I'm tired of seeing so many black boots with natural midsoles. No interest in those at all. Go gangsta or go home.

 

Was the midsole on those pictured black boots cherry or dark brown. Couldn't tell.

I don't recall ever seeing Viberg use cherry. Do you have a pic?

No I haven't. Sorry Aviv.

 

That was my impression of the color.

 

That is why I asked if it was a dark brown. It does look reddish.

 

What would be close to cherry. Antique?

 

Whatever color it is, it is different than every Viberg I've got. Or seen.

Do a 310 in olive no captoe, black tongue.

Agreed. It is just a cult last. I will throw my hat in but if it's not meant to be, life goes on.
