Viberg Boots - Page 30
Styleforum Top Picks
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?
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.
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!
