I couldn't find any info in terms of recrafting viberg boot on their website. Any ideas on where I should send it to? the address maybe? It will be nice to know the cost and detail of how to specifying the resole order.

Pay the shipping and be willing to wait to have Viberg do it right.

 

B. Nelson/VIP Shoe Restorers?

I think he is trying to tactfully avoid naming names.

Nothing against Bnelson, but I don't think you can get original quality resoles unless you go back to the original factory. Even then, we have seen plenty of botched jobs.

I'd sell whatever Aldens I had to get a pair of Vibergs in brown shell, a la Johnny Rich ! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I suggest that you contact Guy Ferguson. You can find his info in this thread.

I have a pair of pre-Katahdin Chippewa engineer boots, which I think probably fit the same as the Katahdins (pic of them here with Oak Street and Vibergs).  The closest Viberg last is the 2045, which they call a "modified Munson last."  It has the same shape more or less. Fitwise, I found that last to be proportionally longer and slightly more narrow than the Chippewa Munson last.  A size 10 Chippewa fits me perfectly, with a bit of extra room for an insole; but the size 10 Viberg was longer and, with an insole, too tight in the vamp.  I've also worn the 310 and the 110 in Viberg.  Those are very different overall than the chippewa Munson.  The 310 feels a half size longer to me, but right on in width; the 110 is a bit wider in the vamp, and very wide in the heel.

Ok thanks for you input ! I guess I'll just order the same size as my LL Katahdin and hope for the best?!

Ive been checking those out they look great, but I have a question for the group - please excuse the naivety, but what do you guys typically wear with navy boots?

post #2534 of 4452

I would wear the hell out of those with denim or chinos.

post #2535 of 4452

My wife would leave me if I bought these cordovan boots.
