Ooo good call. Looks like they have/had Navy Latigo, Black French Calf and #8 CXL service boots.

 

 

But damn these Snuff Suede Service boots look pretty sweet. I hope I get to meet these ones in person.

Will do, I will be happy just getting the sizing down even if I don't come away with anything.

Do you know your brannock size?  Fingers crossed they fit!

 

 

Yeah, I've heard similar comments about IRs being narrow.  Mine feel snug in the heel and regular width in the toe.  I bought IRs in 8.5 and 8, and the 8.5 felt too roomy around the ankle.  Either way, I hope you're wrong, too!  :colgate: 

 

The sole is a Vibram Gloxi Cut.  You don't see it around all that often.  I like it a lot - super comfortable and looks pretty cool too.

Does anyone know if I should expect customs fees from the recent sample sale, and if so, how much? Boots were $500.

After reading your post, I did some reading and found this:  http://www.styleforum.net/t/224463/viberg-boots/5160#post_7170351

 

I got my shipping confirmation today - should be here next Friday.

Ditto on shipping confirmation. I saw someone in another thread talking about import duties, but maybe they weren't in the US. 

 

Regardless, these will be my first vibergs. Excited to see if they live up to the hype. 

 

Which pair did you get?

I got the Chukka in nappa suede, size 8, 110 last.  How about you?

nice choice. i saw there were a handful of chukkas that weren't selling, would have considered a pair if they had one in my size. I was torn between a couple pairs, but grabbed the tan calfskin service boots because they were the least like anything else I already own.

^^Those are nice!  I really like the shape of the service boots.  If those pop up in my size during another sample sale, I might spring for a pair.  Post some fit pics when you get them.  :)

Anyone have the Carolina CXL service boot from 3Sixteen or the Chicago Tan Latigo from Super Denim?

If the latter was on 2030 with unstructured toe, it'd be perfect. I think any toe structure will make the boot look goofy on my small feet and frame (7.5/5'7)

I remember seeing the black calf boots from Brooklyn Clothing on Brett Viberg's instagram or somewhere and they looked very cool..

Those will be sweet once you ditch those laces for waxed cotton or leather laces.

Ha... I'm 5'5". I actually think my unstructured 7.5 CXLs look fairly dainty (at least from the profile shot) so I'm not terribly concerned about an 8 Brandy visually... but I wasn't factoring in the partially structured toe. My new Indys, while significantly more narrow, seem slightly longer and more bulbous in the toe in the profile shot and are at my personal limit of what I'd think gets into clownish territory for my frame.

Could anyone with both partially structured and unstructured Vibergs weight in on the visual difference on foot?

My thoughts exactly. Have been trying to decide what I plan to do instead. The stock brown french calf vibergs use waxed round laces

 

 

But I think those work better with the 10 eyelets. Was thinking about either natural or black rawhide, but not sure, am still waiting to get the boots in my hand until I decide.

Here are pics of what's available at Brooklyn here in Calgary. Hoping to stop by this week and check them out in person.
