From what I have heard you will want to size true to Alden boots.

It's a sample sale, meaning nothing is guaranteed. If everyone thinks they are going to open that thread and find the exact boot they would have made for themselves in their size and half price i promise you will be disappointed. There are; however, a ton of great boots in a pretty wide range of sizes. I'm confident that over the course of the month most people who are serious about buying will have a chance to get something assuming the size works out. If everyone could please have a little patience and wait for the actual sale to start i'm sure all will be clear.


Amen!

My only question is: Does a Viberg's UK sizing equal a half a size or full size up in the US conversion (i.e. does Viberg UK7 = US 7.5 or US 8)?

I wear a 10D in Chippewas, and a 10D or 9.5E in Alden, and in the Viberg 310 last the size 9E I tried on was clearly tight in the toebox.  A 10D was slightly long, but still just a bit tight in the toe area.  So in my experience they run slightly narrow, and about a half size long rather than a full....

I'm usually a 10.5D in the Barrie last for Alden, and with my only Viberg boot - the chukka (in the 1001 last I believe), the UK9.5 fit great.

I have two pair of Vibergs. One is a 9 the other a 9.5. They are on different lasts and fit very differently. I won't buy anything in this sale that wasn't on one of those lasts since this is a no return situation. If you don't know your sizing on various lasts this could be as difficult as buying Aldens (which can be challenging).

I had a pair of vibergs before on the 2030 last and size marked on the boots was uk 6.5 but fit the same as 6.5 Barrie

damit you guys are making sizing vibergs seem very confusing...
post #340 of 6411
So some talk about Viberg versus Alden...but for those without Aldens, any sizing advice against more common shoes? I.e. Clark's desert boots, Converse chucks, Common Projects, Allen Edmonds, etc? TIA
post #341 of 6411
I wear a size 43 (US10) in all Common Projects shoes - essentially, any sneaker built on the Serena sole - and I take a size 9.5 in the Viberg 2030, etc... I like a sight bit of give in all of my footwear.

The 2030 last is much more shallow than most lasts, and is a bit elongated.

I take a 10 in both Clark's Desert Boots and Chuck Taylors, and a 42 in CP Achilles (mind you, they fit me pretty narrow but length is good), and I take a size 9 in the 2030 last (I have a pair of service boots, saddle oxfords, and hikers). I also have a pair of Viberg chukkas with the 110 last in 9.5, and although they're roomier, they still work.

Meaning you like to be able to stretch the leather as per your use? Therefore, you like your footwear a bit snug?

No, I like my footwear to be on the loose, rather than the snug, side. My toes get claustrophobia. I like them to be able to wiggle around when I put them on, from the first time.

Looking at the list, looks like the guys with smaller feet are in luck...
