Viberg Boots - Page 157

post #2341 of 6352
Gents, a lot of size comparisons to Alden/truebalance and barrie lasts... but does anyone in this thread wear Wolverines 1000 Mile boots or Redwings Iron Rangers or Beckmans?
I'd be interested to know what you guys think of how the size compares?

Im typically a 9.5 in both boots, and Im not sure what the proper size would be in Vibergs (likely looking at the 2040 or 110 lasts)

I don't really know what to say about them. Maybe I'm being neurotic, but given the price point, I'm a bit disappointed honestly (by the right boot in case it's not clear from pictures). I guess I'll know better when I can see them in person...

I have been a big Viberg supporter, but I have to agree. Something looks off. I would be unhappy with these as well if they were mine.

yeah man, for the price point, I wouldn't accept those. Maybe I'm picky as well
post #2344 of 6352

I would be very disappointed if I were you. What can you do now? Are you able to return them to fix the issue?

post #2345 of 6352
I don't know really. I'm holding final judgment until I have a chance to see them in person, but then I will likely have to contact viberg and see what they are willing to do.

Forgive me if I am missing something obvious but what is the exact issue with the right boot?

It's easier to see if you go back and blow up the original images to full size.

Are those gunmetal eyelets?  You know the more I look at the leather, the more I like it.  :nodding:

Antique brass. Followed Fok's advice on that. The color is growing on me as well. Looks even better on this monitor than it did on my other one lol8[1].gif

Outside of the distinctive welt the first thing I thought well I opened the box was these are quite similar to Yuketens at double the price point

I agree. I've had some issues with my Vibergs as well (ie. uneven welt stitching). Not asking for perfection but at their prices I expected better. I found fit and finish to be as good if not better with Yuketen and OSB at 2/3 the price.

You should be fine in 9.5. For 2030 take a 10. IMHO

post #2352 of 6352

I agree that doesn't look right for expensive boots.

 

Any update VLSI if you can see my post?

post #2353 of 6352
I've unblocked you. I also looked through your old posts, and while your humor is often lacking, I don't really understand the huge outcry. Anyhow, no updates until I get home and have a chance to see them in person, so Thursday most likely.

Dayam, he was right, does looks good...i was skeptical and went with the gunmetal...we'll see.

 

As for the instep, maybe that's just what it looks like?  I know the majority of people have the service boots...i rarely see the scout boots, but I found another picture of one showing the instep.

I doubt gun metal will look bad either, just different. Antique brass probably goes with the beige color of my sole better as well.

To some extent, it does seem to be the nature of the boot, but it appears much smoother on the left boot without the prominent creating seen on the right boot.

Anyways, let's talk about other viberg products for now smile.gif I don't want to derail the thread and cause any undue ill feelings until I've had a chance to see the boots and contact viberg.
