Viberg Boots - Page 261

post #3901 of 6350

Okay, I find myself still in the market for a good pair of slightly-more-than-basic black boots, after a recent order from White's came out mistaken.  I may just reorder from White's, but figured I'd float it here to see if anyone else would be on board for a group order of black service boots, more or less as follows:

 

-- Black, either oil tan, or perhaps CXL (if the latter definitely lined), assuming HH or some better leather is not available.

-- Eight silver silver eyes.

-- Plain cap toe.

-- 2045 last.

-- Dainite or other sole (open to options).

-- Maybe a pull tab.

 

Not a fancy boot, but a true classic and actually hard to find a good version of it out there.  I will include here a pic of my old Viberg HH boots, which I had to sell, and which will give an idea of the final product (though they are on the 110 last, rather than 2045).

I like that, lina. I'd love to see a sleek, straight tip black boot.

Why the lining preference? Weather?

I'd want the lining on CXL to prevent stretching and give it a bit more structure...

Wish I could see the 110 next to the 2030 with unstructured to. I think 2030 with partial structure is my fave. Wish they would do custom orders again.

Would be down for a black service boot if we changed the leather to what this is here in the pic below. Also, either the 2030 last or preferably the 110 last. Dainite soles. NO TOECAP. 7 silver eyelets. Would get on that ASAP.

Mine have arrived. Just tried them on. The blue is gorgeous - really dark except under direct light. Boots were way heavier than I expected as well, definitely a really solid shoe. I'll try to post some photos tomorrow.

My only grip with the 2030 is that they taper too much when viewed top down. I'd like something rounder but still sleek-ish.

Would that be the 2045? Or the new 1035?

Preorders go on for one more week.

So Guy. I need a refresher on the lasts. If I'm a 9 on the 110 and a 9.5 on the 2030, what am I on the 2040 and the 1030? The 2030 is the best fitting boot I've ever worn from any company. It's better than my 9.5e Barrie last boots from Alden which had long been my favorite fit.
post #3914 of 6350
And the 1035 last as well?
post #3915 of 6350
Someone should make a spreadsheet of size equivalency across the lasts.
