Where did you get them resoled? I may try that with a pay of Alden's.

If he lives in the US, I suspect he went with Brian the Bootmaker

If he's a truth-teller, my guess is Baker's.

Yep. 

 

Baker's does resoles.

I love that resole job (x post from Alden thread) but he didn't tell me what that black sole is. It doesn't look like raw cord because its all black.

I'm thinking of sending in my Roys for this. Looks better than stock.

Such boot angst!  I'm on the waiting list for the Leffot Cordovan #8, and the much more affordable CXL #8 could come up for sale (and subsequently sell out) any day. Shell is definitely worth it, right? I've been shopping for two months and feel like it will be two years before I score a pair...  Pissed I didn't jump on the #8 cordovans sooner, but I had no idea a pre-sale would go that fast.

 

I don't see too many pictures of the CXL # 8 after a year or so of wear. That might save me 400 bucks... anyone?

If you want the shell, hold out for it. If you get the CXL you will only end up buying the shell later as that is what you really want. Of course you'll end up with two awesome pairs of boots, but like $2,000 in the hole....

CXL restocks are coming to viberg.com

Shell vs. CXL -- got to know what you want in terms of looks, durability, etc. Maybe shell is not what you need in a casual workboot. Maybe it is...

I saw the CXL's coming back -- hence the angst.   This won't be a work boot, but it will be a boot I wear every other day in every condition possible.  I intend to be hard on them.  I guess cordovan is more durable, but I'm going to have to wait....

 

I don't want Brandy, I want black or # 8... (or something very dark) So I guess I could be waiting half a year or more if I don't jump on the CXL now?

If you wear them hard the CXL will definitely get scuffed up and probably stretch pretty quickly. In my experience it is not a workboot leather.

My black CXL has been a great boot. Always get compliments on them.

Curious what the matte black calf will look like and if it scuffs as easily as CXL. Wish they did a run of black French calf with 10 eyelets for Viberg.com, or at least another run of black shell.

Still digging this bal:

But I'm cool with the derby we discussed earlier.

I'm fine with scuffs.... excited even.  But stretching? I thought VIberg used really thick CXL. Thicker than Alden.  Stretching like they won't fit after a year of hard wear, or stretching like they'll look worn in and bad-ass?

Worn-in and bad ass. In my experience, the plasticity is minimal but there is a subtle expansion while wearing the boot, which I attribute to heat. I can feel the boot barely loosen up by mid day, after some walking. We are talking about skin, after all.

Get the boots. You won't be disappointed.
