I have Quoddy and Yuketen suede shoes that are 4-5 years old, get tons of wear but haven't developed dark spots that I've seen in several Viberg boot pics.

 

 

Thanks and sorry for the late response.  I only check this thread once in a while.

 

The dark spots are from my jeans.  I wear Iron Heart so it's the natural indigo rubbing off.  I haven't tried to clean it much and don't think it really will.  I don't mind it.  Actually kind of like it.  I did clean the rest of the shoes with a brush and some mild detergent with warm water though.  That seems to get most dirt and grime out easily.

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. 

 

I don't see any problem with these questions.  (And in fact, I was very interested to see that Dr Sole site; many of us here end up resoling boots and it is relevant info).   What I've always liked about the Viberg and the White's boot boards is that the folks on them tend to err on the side of friendliness and informativeness, unlike some other boards.  No need to change that...

Didn't we come to a conclusion that we need to send back to Vibergs to resole?

It's always the best idea to send back to the manufacturer for a resole anyway

Actually, Dr Sole has an almost [dedicated] thread @SuFu if one really needs to know about the resoling part.
It's just that asking it here, kinda out of topic [with the link], seems like spamming wink.gif

Not off topic in my view, since I was asking about the application of the product on Viberg boots specifically.
post #2767 of 6519
I will also ask Viberg via email if they would consider using a Dr Sole product on a new order, since my major concern is traction without unnecessary lug-age.

If my concern is traction or longevity, I go Dainite or Commando sole. Otherwise, JR leather soles.

From what I've read Dainite soles' durometer is too high and becomes hard as rock at low temps (eg -30) and the commando is a little too aggressive looks-wise. I may have to compromise and get a warm and cold season pair.

I don't go outside when its -30, but that's just me.

-30 celsius or fahrenheit? Are the Itshide club commando soles any better at lower temperatures? 

post #2772 of 6519
-30 C, though that is before windchill is factored in. Itshide are the older uk ones? If so, I doubt they would be able to deal withcold temps. The compromise is between durability and traction.

At -30 get a pair of snowpacs and be done with it, no need to look good at those temperatures.

There's a vibram ice and oil sole.
post #2774 of 6519

I know about that sole, I just want it all in one tidy SB package.

post #2775 of 6519
I don't go outside in -22 F, either. Agree with Finn that style is not a concern in extreme temps. That's like worrying about your tweed sport coat when it is 100 (F) outside. Horses for shit and such.
