heheh Fok, I was very close to pull the trigger on these but already have Viberg derby boots in the same leather.

Pics? I've never seen a Viberg derby for sale.

Hey Steel:

 

What size did you order the Viberg wax flesh country derby compared to your Alden sizing?  How are they breaking in so far?

 

thanks

I think he's talking about the derby boot, they have three up on the site now... Two country derby boots and one service derby.

I got size 8 in 2040 last and the fit is better than perfect. I'm size 9D TTS (Brannock) and for Alden here my breakdown:

Barrie - 8.5D (perfect fit)

Trubalance - 8.5D (perfect fit)

After lengthy discussions with Morgan and Guy from Viberg, I decided to get size 8 in 2030 for the future makeups.
Be aware though, some members wear same size as their Alden Trubalance/Barrie.

As for breaking in, these became extremely comfortable after 6-8 wears.

cheers

Thanks Steel for sharing your experience. Have a great weekend

@Duck__ Steel gets away w/the size down cuz he's got medium-narrow width, but if you walk on the wide-side [E's], like i do, it's Trubalance = 2040/2005 ... & 2030 is out.

Thanks lllrd. I really hope to try some on one day before buying another blind purchase and have to ship back. The shipping back to LS in HI was a expensive lesson But I really like that waxy flesh. And those rough outs being built now look awesome smile.gif

Have a great weekend all

I wouldn't mind trying a pair of Viberg's however at $800 and on the blind without being able to try on a pair to determine my size - no thanks.

I see that Viberg has been stocking items on their website and offer a return policy for full refund.  It could be a good way to determine size however it appears that most of the styles are very broken with few sizes remaining.  Will they be restocking?

 

The 3sixteen makeup looks great however - same problem.  A $1000 boot - and no returns.  How can anyone pull the trigger without knowing exactly what size they will be.

Most of us know what size we are in other similarly shaped/sized lasts, so it's not that difficult to do.  If you have a question about what size to get, you could always just post here or e-mail viberg and somebody can help you figure that out.

Which 3sixteen boot is $1000?

And anyone find Viberg laces a bit short? Have barely any laces left to tie shoe

Corrected - $720

at that price does it really make a difference - one needs to be 100% sure about fit

Not quite.  I spent close to 30 years designing and manufacturing mens shoes.  Ten different styles (or patterns) on the same exact last will each fit differently.  I know that I take a 81/2 on a Trickers Stow 4997 - that does not mean I can be sure that a 81/2 Viberg will fit me.  I am simply saying that it is a big stretch buying a pair of any brands shoes at these price points without being able to try them on - and return them if necessary in case they do not fit.

I seem to see quite a few postings on this forum from people selling shoes and clothes which ended up not fitting once they arrived in the mail.  Its one thing if it is a $100 pair of jeans - another for a $800 pair of shoes (or sportcoat or anything for that matter)

It's definitely an issue. But one thing that helps is that Viberg is very re-sellable.

^ uhhhhh…unless you bought them on steep discount, you'll never get your money back.
