I had a pair, and it did not feel like a 2E to me.  Felt just about like a D to be honest, though some folks have felt it to wider I think.

So I will be getting some wax flesh boots in a couple of months.  I have boots in plain roughout, CXL, calf and shell but wax flesh will be a first for me.  What, if any, is the recommended care for this type of leather?  Shoe trees obviously, but I would want the wax to wear off as naturally as possible so brushing them like suede is not a good idea, right?  And if I want them to "distress" naturally, I wouldn't want to put any wax on them, right?  So is it like, light brushing to get off dust and that's about it?

I think you shouldn't don't do anything. It should be fine for any weather, and I think using a suede brush will unnaturally wear them, which doesn't sound like the kind of wear you want. If you do brush them, I'd do it very lightly with horsehair, but I don't think there's too much point until the wax starts to wear off.

Sounds like the copy of a Dr. Scholl's commercial.

Got my first pair of Vibergs which happen to be on the 2030 last. There is some discomfort/pressure in the arch area, like something pushing upwards. Has anyone felt this in their boots and if so, does it break in and go away?

Man I hate to hear that. I have a 2030 and no such problem in the arch

Seconded. My 2030 boots are my most comfortable.

What kind of socks are you wearing with them? Do you have flat feet?

So what's the process for getting a group MTO going?

I am interested in being a part of a group buy of color 8 or brown shell cordovan 2030 last plain toe.

From what I remember, Viberg doesn't like working with shell. But if theyve changed their mind, that'd be great news!
