The eternal conundrum, leather or waxed laces?

For my 2 cents, I'd go waxed laces on these, until they're all beaten up, then switch to leather.

yeah, having a hard time deciding. Viberg shows them with the rawhide on their website as well.

I may be in the minority,but I prefer flat waxed laces on these dressier lasted work boots (whites SDs, viberg 2030, Alden's, OSB trench boots).

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: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Fantastic looking boots my friend! Thanks for sizing advice and I'm now confident getting 1/2 down from my TTS for 2030 last.

if I wear a 9.5 on the 310 last, what size should I go for on the 2030 last?

Thanks so much for the insight! I would rtaher be a bit big and use a thicker sock and insole than be too tight. Sounds like Barrie sizing will be right for me

I like the leather laces on these. Brings out the latent Viberg workboot in them. Though like others I prefer waxed on Aldens etc.

That's a good point, but I feel that the overall look depends on more than just the shape of the last. For instance, I wear flat waxed laces on my black shell cordovan 1940 service boots (2030 last) but leather laces on 1950 service boots in black buffalo/buffalo roughout (2030 last). So, even tho they are both on a same last, I feel that the leather of the boot is actually something that can be considered as well. Either way, I feel that often both laces would work just fine, just a different look.

Bold, underline and colour, too! Oh, SHIT!

I think leather laces work best with vibergs... Feel like waxed laces might be too dressy looking on a tough boot like vibergs but that's just me. Prefer the wax laces on boots like the 1k and indys. I guess either way, you have a pair of awesome boots with good laces.

Just got word yesterday from Morgan that my new MTO service boots, black horsehide on the 110 last, are shipping out -- several weeks earlier than I expected!  Nothing like waiting for a new pair of Vibergs to get one's blood going.  I will post pictures upon arrival. Really excited about these..

 

That also means that getting rid of the pair of 310s I am selling, also black horsehide service boots (10D), is more of a priority.  If you're interested in them, feel free to make a reasonable offer.

I sent an email to the MTO email today, is there a better email to reach them at or am I just being impatient? :embar:

I would say impatient
