Viberg Boots - Page 133

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.

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.

16-24 weeks was mentioned earlier in the thread.

I assume that's the time for development, I have yet to pay for my initial deposit.

The adventure continues...

 

Snagged these off the 'Bay a few days ago, they're my ideal boots. They're brand new with no wear whatsoever. Now that I've had both, I think I prefer the Cat's Paw heel with Vibram 269 sole vs. the Dainite soles, too. But they don't fit. It just confirmed I am a size 8 and can't squeeze into a 7.5. So I'll put them back up later.

 

But yeah, this is it. Going to have to go the MTO route and play the waiting game.  ...sigh..

 

Black Oil Tan, y'all

^Beauteous 'berg!

With regard to Cat's Paw Vs. Dainite, it's been my experience that the Dainite sole is more hard-wearing. There are Cat's Paws on my 4 Horsemen Service Boot, and they've worn down much faster than the Dainites on my chukkas. Anyone else care to speak to the comparison?

it is from my experience as well that Dainite is much more durable than cat's paw.

Besides, viberg only uses cat's paw heels, which makes it less tempting to go that route.

What do you mean they only use cat's paw heels? They only offered me Dainite in the MTO route. Said cat's paw wasn't an option.

the only 'cat's paw' part is the heel. the sole is vibram.

Teger is correct on what I meant.

When I ordered my pair a couple months ago, cat's paw heel was still on the table with no extra charge (I went with dainite). Maybe it's temporarily out of stock? I wouldn't be too concerned with outsole choices - they all wear off in a year or so and then you get to make your choice again when resoling :P
