Man, it's way too hot for boots out there today. High of 90 degrees here. As an aside, interesting that you let your laces hang so long like that. I cut the ends of my laces off so that they hang a lot less.

I like to keep the laces the original length.

I have to loosen them substantially to get my feet in the boots, so I like to not have to unlace them as much as I can.

I could double knot them and make them shorter, but I chose not to.

I always find an excuse to wear Viberg boots

Not an ignorant question at all. You see, Brooklyn Clothing likes Viberg's as much as we do and they are afraid that if they post them online, they might sell quicker. They would rather hold into them, I mean...wouldn't you?

I suspected it was something along these lines. Damn. Do they do phone orders?

You mean they want to keep inventory? That's a first. I would imagine it may be some deal with Viberg.

There are plenty of other real nice options out there. So as nice as Vibergs are they aren'lt the end all be all for me. But then again neither is Edward Green or Rancourt. I enjoy being able to chose a boot or shoe that is more appropriate for the wardrobe I've chosen to wear that day.

These shell look to me more like rugged workboots which I like a lot.

Perhaps they know that they will sell out of Vibergs anyway, and bringing people into the store, where they also might be likely to purchase something else, is the strategy?

 

 

Just hypothesizing. 

post #6030 of 7662

Received my pair of cinnamon RO 2040 today (pics possibly later...on vacation so maybe much later) but unfortunately the right boot did not fit well at all. I was wearing loafer liners when I tried the boots on and the instep on the right boot was way too tight and the heel cup felt too tight as well (whereas on the left foot, everything felt snug but not invasive or tight). So I guess I'm going to have to send them back for either an exchange for a size up or full return for a different boot. I'm not sure at this point.

 

FWIW, I thought the color of the boots was much better in person than in any product pictures I've seen. Even in my own photos the color was washing out with natural light. The color was much more red-orange and saturated than online. This was my first in-person interaction with Vibergs and I must say they are built like tanks. I couldn't find any details or imperfections that I found warranted a return, but I did find that one of the stitch-down stitches ended one stitch before the edge of the leather rather than one stitch past it (only one side on one boot). Other than that, I loved the construction from my brief handling and am excited to get a pair that fits and break them in.
