3 weeks old and LOVING them! :)
The Boondockers are nice looking shoes - the Nigel Cabourn service boot even nicer - however I am really having a problem with the price of these. $665 plus shipping puts them at $700. Trickers cost me $500 - Red Wings are half price. Sorry just my opinion - and what is keeping me from pulling the trigger. Nice shoes though.
As most of you know, only the finest shells can be used by Horween to make Walnut. Any shell can be tanned into. Black, # 8 and, as more imperfections appear, it becomes impossible for Horween to turn them into #4, Cigar, Ravello, Walnut and Whiskey.
The boots have been tried on, but have never been worn. If you want to see pictures of them, you can look at the Viberg Blog under walnut or you can look at the Viberg Boot page on Facebook where I have posted pictures. Viberg currently is very constructed in terms of the Cordovan Shells that they can get from Horween. I don't want to speak for Brett because, as I'm sure you all know, he is capable of miracles; but there will not be another boot like this for a long time. Leffot is selling there # 8 for $980. The price for these will be commensurate with what they are. A one of a kind Cordovan Service Boot made using the rarest Horween Cordovan and they are a size 8.
Thanks. For the 2030, should I be sizing down only half a size from my Brannock-measured size if I'm usually a wide (TTS) in Alden's Tru-balance and Barrie or standard width at half-a-size up? If it helps at all, I also go down half a size from my Brannock for the English-sizing on the C&J 325 last.
