Viberg Boots - Page 184

Quick sizing question:

 

If I'm 8.5E on the TruBalance, but could probably go down to 8E/8.5D, what would I be in the 2030?

I would stick with 8.5 in the 2030. I am a 9.5E in Barrie/Trubalance, and the 9.5 in Viberg fits me great. Also, my pair (Chromepak CXL) is made of tougher leather than most Alden boots, so I don't mind a little extra room in the boot.

Thanks, Michael.  Truth be told, I was going to post about this scary, increasing attraction to and interest in Viberg, since I read about them over a year ago.  I own no Viberg boots but I am resigned to the fact that I probably will sometime this year. I own a couple of OSB boots and it might be a natural transition to want to own a Viberg pair.

 

But I was complaining on a C&J thread about not being able to wear my boots enough because I feel the need to rotate through my collection evenly. That led to the conclusion that I need to trim the collection and that I really shouldn't be buying any more footwear.  But I am very weak and submissive to these urges when I read the postings and pictures of these enablers on SF.  I just didn't want to seem like a hypocrite at that moment.  But what the hell...

Quit bumping. This isn't superfuture.

Are these questions out of line or just below everyone's notice?

This isn't the ask a question thread its a thread specifically dedicated to Viberg Boots. 

post #2752 of 6317

Both questions concern Viberg boots.

 

The first question is self-explanatory.

 

The second one is about Dr Sole, a new-ish sole maker who's work seems to lend itself to the type of boots that are discussed here.

Since I'm considering a pair I'd like to explore all the options.

Just email viberg and they'll tell you what lasts the foreman and bobcat use.

 

As for Dr Sole that's a very obscure question and as far as I can tell Dr Sole is not a qualified doctor nor does he exist on the internet.

Hey!  Had a sizing question for the Service Boots (2030 last).  I wear a 10D in Wolverine 1,000-Miles and a 9.5D on Alden's Barrie last.  Would 9 or 9.5 on the 2030 work better for me?  Thanks!

post #2755 of 6317
2030 = Alden Barrie size. I would suggest using the search function in this thread as it will yield you a lot of great info
post #2756 of 6317

Alright, one last reference to these questions of mine and then I'll move aside.

As for the lasts, 'just email Viberg' is advice that could apply to a large percentage of the questions asked on this forum.

 

I will do that, and thank you.

 

Concerning Dr Sole, that was a live link as it is now. If you bother to click on it all will be revealed.

Your google fu needs some work if a reference to Dr Sole brings up nothing.

Would it be possible to remove the arrow stitching on the Cabourn x Viberg chukka? Would I be left with holes in the boot? Probably a stupid question but the arrow is a deal breaker.

post #2758 of 6317
Unfortunately, you would be left with holes. To create the stitches the leather has to be punctured.
post #2759 of 6317
I'm still not sure why they decided to go with the arrow design
post #2760 of 6317

Yeah, that's what I thought. The arrow is Cabourn's symbol. Good way to ruin a nice boot.
