^ There's something "off" about those chukkas. Maybe it's me, but I'm seeing wooden clogs. How's the fit?

I think it's just the angle of the photo. They look great in standing pics on the other board...

Are these service boots? If yes, whicj last? They look like Bobcats to me. I'm asking because I like their look and would like to order some similar.  Thanks.

What I love:  the Horsehide is just my favorite boot leather, and is both thick and tough but also has some richness to it.  The Dainite sole is cool, and the natural midsole works well I think.  Plain cap toe and slightly contrasting brown stitching, also nice.

 

What I don't quite love:  I really prefer the more substantial, rounded toe of the 2045 or 310 lasts, the toe on these 110s is just a bit too dressy for me.  I had intended to get silver eyelets, but I think because I wrote "silver/gunmetal" thinking they were the same I got gunmetal which is not silver, oh well.  The boots have a slight built in "pronation" (leaning inward), which I've noticed on other Vibergs.

 

This gets me close to my perfect black boot, but alas is not quite there.  Unfortunately the 310 and 2045 did not quite work fitwise, whereas I think these will, so in the end that's what wins out.

 

[Sorry for the bad pics; they were all done last night with a flash. I'll get some natural light pics soon that will show off the horsehide better.]

 

 

 

 

 

How would you compare horsehide to chromexcel? More pliable/flexible? Not as thick? Heavier/lighter? Tougher? More/less glossy?

Definitely less glossy than CXL (but more than Oil Tan), and definitely less stretchy and less susceptible to nicks and marks.  It seems about as thick to me, and probably slightly heavier.  Less pliable than CXL, but neither is it stiff. 

 

Honestly, I love the HH; it's by far my favorite boot leather.  I have never owned pair over a course of years however, so we'll see how tough it is in the long run.  I have always heard that it wears like iron, but we'll see.

After a lot of wear, gave my boondockers some dubbin treatment. Only the vamp and counter for now.

Hrmmm some heel slippage with my new Vibergs based on a couple minutes of indoor try-on. Insoles maybe? Rest of the boot fits comfortably though.
post #1992 of 6061
Heel slippage generally goes away after a period of wear, after that time (around 2 weeks) it's still slipping, then maybe inserts.

Is it 110 last?  These seem to be wide at the heels...

How long is the process to order custom boots? I emailed Morgan (through mto@viberg.com) about a week ago, exchanged some emails about what I wanted, told him I was ready to drop the deposit then no reply for about 5 days now.
