Haha thanks guys. I guess I'll stick with the 7D for now and work from there.

Thanks! Beautiful boots. The pair to the right... is that the 110 last? Looks fantastic. I may need a pair like that.

 

The 2030 fits me fine, but I feel visually the taper on the toe is too sharp. I wish it looked more like my Alden Roy boots. Fantastic boots, otherwise. They'll likely outlast me.

 

I'd like a 2045 or 2040 but don't want too much of a structured toe; the unstructured 2030 looks nice, just wish the tip was more rounded. I think 110 last I'd have to size down half a size from the 2030; the toe box seems that wide.

I'm the same size in Barrie, trubalance and 2030.

Thanks! They are also on a 2030 last, that picture probably makes the toe look a bit rounder than it actually is. 

 

They are from 4HS but unfortunately sold out already: http://www.fourhorsemen.ca/products/service-boot-black-buffalo-suede-smooth

Picked up the natty CXL rough out Boondockers from Leffot. 2030 Last. Here some pics, including comparisons to Alden.






Viberg 2030 last, size 10.5 v. Alden Barrie last, size 10.5D:

Prominent heel on the Viberg




Viberg 2030 last, size 10.5 v.. Alden Trubalance last, size 10.5D:



Viberg 2030 last, size 10.5 v Alden Plaza last, size 11D:





The Viberg has a thick leather sole & the CXL leather is quite thick too. It's a stiff-fitting boot so far. There is approxiately .75" of space at the end of the toe, but, given the verticle taper of the toe box, I'm not sure how much is actually useable. I feel like it's the correct fit for my Brannock size 11C feet.

Many thanks for these comparison photographs. For me, this just confirms I would order 2030 same size as Barrie, and I would definitely want the 2030 last, as it seems that as narrow as it is compared to other Viberg offerings, it is still a comfortable toe box.

How sleek is the Plaza last? Is that boot dressier to your eyes than the Barrie?

 

How ya liken that Color 8 Indy? I have the same one. Wearing them today...my favorite pair of footwear!

 

I was going to spring for a cap toe color 8 on the Grant last, but I figured it's too close to the color 8 Indy...might as well hold out for a whiskey or ravello pair of something.

Your 2030 last will fit longer than your equivalent Barrie size, but the 2030 has a very narrow toe so you need the extra room. Also Viberg boots mold to your feet infinitely better than Aldens - they have a very thick leather insole and heelpad, and once they shape, they really cushion/hug the foot. Steel shank too.

The excellent Viberg vs Alden photos really put talk of the 2030 last being sleek into perspective. My 9.5 2030 are comparable to my 9.5E in Barrie. Comparing the Viberg and Aldens to boots like EG, Rider or G&G would make the point even more apparent

sleakness is relative though - part of the reason the viberg looks chunkier in birds eye views is because it has as much thicker welt and double norwegian stitching
