Viberg Boots - Page 336

Never mind. Saw that that they use Canada Post. Which then I assume would be transferred to the USPS. So I'd hope no brokerage fees then.

No brokerage fees when buying directly from Viberg.

Purchased the Natural Shell Cordavan service boots from 14 oz. Berlin, they do not ship directly to the US.

 

14 oz ship to a proxy that lives in the EU proxy then shipped to me.

I dont remember all the fees and such it wasnt a big deal to me but again expect to pay 20% when dealing with overseas retailers.

Always do your own brokerage; it takes a little longer and involves a bit of travel between the courier and government tariff offices, but you can save serious dollars this way.

I've never had a courier company refuse to do this, even after there has been a delivery attempt when I wasn't at home.

As for the darkening, that's what I love about light shell (or any leather) . It's unpredictable, and not for everyone, but it just makes the boots so personalized over time. Brandy should do that too. I agree with Joona, though, that plain toe would be awesome.

Not my favorite thing when it comes to light shell, as I really prefer the lighter color. But then again it is what it is.

So should these bad boys: 

 

 

 

and that's why I will be going broke

Are these the cordovan release after the brandy?  Is that natural?

Not for Viberg.com

 

I think Bread and Butter will restock; they sold out of the natural shell pretty quickly.

 

I wish Viberg would restock their black shell. Eager to get a pair and unload my (badass) black CXL.

Well if by really quickly you mean 8 months and then 2 days.

Bread and butter is a trade show, so I doubt they will stock anything
post #5034 of 6523
Bread and Butter GmbH (the German version of incorporated) is the parent company of 14oz, as well as the organizer of a trade show. So 14oz may very well get them in stock. However, except recently with these natural shells, they decline to ship to the US, so future pairs may not be available.

I knew if I got CXL first I'd regret it.

Looked through the thread, but wasn't really able to find much of a consensus. What's the general conversion from Allen Edmonds 5 last to the 2030 last?

Depends on your width. I wear a 7.5 in the 2030 and even so need a very thin foam insert for my forefoot. Perfect fit after that. I think a 7 be too small.

I measure an 8E with a high instep, so I'm technically a little wider than that.

In the 5 last, I could get away with a 7.5EE but feel most comfortable with the 7.5EEE.

I wear an 8D in Barrie shoe, 8E in boot; the 7.5E (boot) fits but I can tell itd be uncomfortable after a few hours.

If you're a 7.5D-EE (on the 5 last) with a low instep, I bet a 7 in the 2030 could work. If high instep, err on the other side of larger and use an insert with the 7.5.

That's my best guess.

Thanks so much, this is pretty much exactly what I wanted to know!

 

I wear a 7.5D with a low instep (could probably also wear a 7.5E). Read some advice that I could probably go with 6.5 or 7 in the 2030 last. Do you think 6.5 would definitely be too small?

What is it with people trying to squeeze into the smallest possible shoes?
post #5040 of 6523
FWIW, I'm a pretty reliable 9D, and was advised by Andrew at 3sixteen to take an 8 in their Viberg service boots. They came and fit perfectly. Those were built on the 2030.
