Not sure, since they do not actually offer horsehide as an option. They did a special make up for the Swiss store VMC in black horsehide, which apparently sold for $1000 US. See link here for a pair of those reselling for $875:
Viberg will currently do a custom 1950 Service Boot, same build as the brown ones but on the cheaper cowhide leathers, for between $650 and $700. But again, the horsehide is always more, and the wait for a custom build is 4 to 5 months.
I actually have a pair of the black horsehides which fit me better, and they are indeed a very fine boot. But honestly, I like these brown ones better. The leather is just so rich and gorgeous, and the Dainite soles very cool.
After this, I will post a pic of my black Vibergs, which are NOT for sale..
thanks man, 1950 service boots is on which last?
Which last is the most formal? The 2030?
I checked the Viberg Blog and they mentioned that they are going to begin doing Goodyear welts. I thought that Goodyear welts were the standard. What does Viberg currently use? Has anybody ever gotten a Viberg boot resolved. I always thought that Viberg boots were famous for the guaranty that the company put on them.
I have only one pair of Vibergs and was thinking about maybe getting another. How long do custom boots take? Can somebody with some experience fill be in on how long it will take and what do I have to do to get started?
Also, has anybody ever bought a cordovan boot from them? What's the difference between cordovan and horsehide?
One last question: has anybody ever gotten leather soles shoe from Viberg. I've seen a ton of Dainite, but never a traditional leather sole.
Thanks. Sorry again for all the questions
