I thought this writeup gave a nice perspective:
"I asked a user here about the value of Viberg boots a few weeks ago. Specifically if the value of Viberg CXL vs Alden Shell. Before handling this pair of service boots I have received and returned 4 pairs of Alden Shell. Indys, Grant Cap Toes, J Crew LWBs, and J Crew Cap Toes. From the little experience I have gained I have no problems saying that I am happy paying more for a pair of Vibergs than Alden Shell."

Guess that's the thing though - most of my shoes/boots serve the same function at this time. Only my LWBs could be used as part of dressier attire, but that is a rare need. Guess more than function, it's aesthetic disparity. A natty cxl moc toe w/ crepe sole vs. sleek(er) a brown cxl dainite soled cap toe, they seem different enough?
