Viberg Boots - Page 124

post #1846 of 6394

Got the "Boondocker" in the post yesterday (http://viberg.myshopify.com/collections/footwear/products/boondocker). Fit is right on, Morgan was a great help in this. I am in most boots, Indy, Julian Boots, Yuketen etc, a US 9. Morgan suggested Viberg size 8 and he is right.

 

Now just have to "Bang" the new out of them, a little gardening perhaps.....

 

Any thoughts on how to treat rough out leather, am inclined to just wear and brush. Am not a big fan of silicon sprays......

 

Thanks and have fun Y'all

Congrats! I'm waiting for Boondocker boots to be added to the site and going with size 8. I wear size 8.5D in Alden Indy and you are saying that you have sized down one full size from Alden Indy boots?

I have purchased size 8 in 2040 last for Country Derby boots and the fit is spot on.

I'm interested to hear about Natural Aniline Chromexcel leather care as well.

These are the 110 last, and yes I went from a US 9 (boot) to a Viberg size 8. The is fit right on.......

 

Will be treating as to avoid spotting, with what remains to be seen.....

 

Calling them was of great help, they shipped the same day I ordered which was very nice. Hung up in San Fran for 3/4 days but none the less had them in a week. Nice......

 

Good luck and enjoy

Here is this, on "dubbing,"  though I have never done it myself, having never had roughout leather:

What leather is this? Is this Icy Mocha Chromexcel? It looks more orange. 




 

This is actually Whiskey Cavalier, which we only had a sample side of. It's the non Scotch Grain version of the leather used on the two-tone service boot sold out on Viberg.com right now. It's great stuff and we might be bringing more of it in down the road.

This is the Bernhard Boot. The pattern is still being tweaked, but it's nearly there. As far as the pattern and the seams it's probably the most complex boot we have ever made. It's essentially a chukka, but i've never seen anything quite like it available before. It's a fairly accurate reproduction of a vintage boot from the pre-depression era. It should be available on viberg.com and at stockists early Spring. If you look at the Journal on Viberg.com under the Liberty LV post there is a photo of a finished prototype of it.

Awesome thanks Guy! I've never seen a chukka quite like it.

For my Boondockers, I've given them a light covering with Viberg's own leather preservative (rub in a light amount, let it dry, brush), and now I'm just brushing them after every few wears, they really don't need much upkeep at all.
post #1853 of 6394

Thanks, agree that just wear, brush and treat as needed is the way to go.....It is after all a work boot......

 

Now as for "Dubbing", this very interesting and I like it....Have a pair of what I believed were oiled roughout boots (Ralph Lauren) but now think are "dubbed" instead. This may not be the case but at least I now know how to maintain them. Will try and see.

 

Thanks again & enjoy.......

if I am an E width, will sizing up a half from brannock size on the 2030 work or no?
post #1856 of 6394
My Icy Mocha Service boots arrived today, 7 days after ordering (NJ, USA)

They're a sight to behold and to hold. I sized down 1/2 from my TTS Brannock (same as my size on the Barrie last). They're a tad long but I don't think a full size down from TTS would have worked.

Thanks again to Guy @ Viberg for the help.

Here they are:

Thanks Steven. Haven't worn them for a full day yet so hard to say. I'd estimate a bit wider than my Barrie boots (which tend to fit me a bit tighter than Barrie shoes)
