I've been looking at Viberg for a while. Read a lot of advice on the sizing of the different lasts. When the pics went up I recognized the last & size I wanted. We'll see how it works out.

I also have the 1950 Service Boots with turned up toe (the 310 last), and I find them to be 1/2 sizer larger overall than true-to-size US boots, but slightly narrow.  For me, I am a 10D in most US workboots, but a 9.5E in Viberg.

 

I will say that the 310 last Service Boot is by far the heaviest most well-built 5 or 6 inch boot I have seen.  And the black HH leather that I have is just over the top in quality.  But my experience is that it's not a boot that is super comfortable out of the box -- takes some breaking in. And the higher heel takes getting used to.

Any chance you can compare to Alden Indys?

I wear 8.5D in Alden Indys (as well as White's, Wesco, RW) and have the Viberg 1950 in both the 310 and 2030 lasts in a size 8. The 310 last in a size 8 fits me well and while the 2030 still fits, it's a bit snug for my liking. If I was to get another 2030, I'll go 8.5.

I've been waiting for a reply like this, thanks. But when you refer to taking an 8 in Viberg do you mean UK7?

Nice grab. You were bolder than I...

I really wanted these but i couldnt figure out the sizing myself. Im a 9D too.

 

Please let me know how these fit as im looking to own a pair in the near future.

8 in Viberg sizing = UK8. So to be clear, I wear US8.5 in Alden Indy and UK8 in Viberg.

I think if you're a 8.5D in Alden Indys an 8.5UK in Viberg is going to be extremely long, and the ball of your foot is going to be up past the widest part of the shoe. I'd only look at 7.5UK or 8UK MAX, otherwise I'd say the boot last just doesn't fit your foot.

can anyone make any comparisons between viberg sizing and clarks desert boots and/or red wing moc toe (i.e. 8138) boots sizing?

The second batch of boots is almost done and will be going live on Tuesday around noon (pacific time). It's going to be more like 15 styles this time as 30 was just way to much logistically for us to deal with in a single day. We've also tried to be more descriptive this time and have included the last and any specific flaw that might be present. As for sizing people don't necessarily need to worry so much about the UK thing. It's not like we have two sets of size stamps or anything. The 2030 last is relatively shallow and narrow and i like a full size down from my Brannock size in this. The 110 is wider and rounder with more room in the toe and i can do 1 or 1.5 down from my Brannock size. The 310 has the upturned toe and is at least as roomy as the 110. Besides that there is the hiker last and a few others which are seldom used. Once our new site launches we will have a thorough sizing guide with comparisons as well as visuals for all the lasts. I understand this sale isn't perfect, but we're working with what we have. Some of these boots are years old and don't even have a label.

BTW round 2 is gonna be really good. I'm away this weekend so i won't be prompt with emails. If you are asking about what will be available don't bother, we are not going to release that early. Talk to you all on Tuesday. Enjoy the weekend!

310 Last. Chunkier I would say.
