Great boots on a great last I say.

Regardless, thanks for putting all this together........it's a unique opportunity for the SF community! After a bit longer, you wonder if Viberg will have the capacity to handle bespoke group orders..........

They have, in the past, but as with many makers, they found that it's not a great business, unless they have a special production line just for that.  Some companies, like Edward Green, have that, and St. Crispin, is pretty much all bespoke, but the prices for Edward Green Top Shelf starts at something like $1600 for the base model.

any chance there are spots open for that group order?

Plenty of time and spots. The pre-order process likely won't begin until mid-September or so and then you will have 3 weeks to order. Process is payment in full and delivery time seems to be 12 weeks or longer.

How do you size the 2030? 7.5 or 8?

And do you wear an insole or thicker socks?

The 110 last looks super generous. I would have to go down to a size 7 I think.

Size 8 in boots with a thicker sock like Danner, no insole. I also went 8 in 2045 and while a bit roomy I don't think sizing down would have worked.

 

That being said, I went 7.5 on the Natty CXL Derby as with a thin sock the 8 is very roomy and I wanted to mitigate heel slip on the shoe.

Scotchgrain shell is a grail for me (which Tif knows).

Whether it is Viberg or another manufacturer.

When I saw @stevent post them on Instagram, I commented immediately.

Finally made it down to Brooklyn Clothing to check out Viberg in person and see about sizing. From the pairs they had I was told all were on the 2030 last except for one which I believe was on the 2045. They do not carry any half sizes, which was unfortunate because it seems like 7.5 could be the magic size on the 2030 for me. The 8 was just too big overall and the 7 was debatable, the last felt pretty good all around and was a snug fit. Without some carpet time it would be tough to tell how the 7 would feel on my toes after some walking. 

 

 

 

 

Size 8 snuff suede: This boot was seriously amazing in person, the suede was buttery soft and felt super comfortable right away when tried them on. I think this would be my fav of the bunch, but I am not sure now if I would prefer the Boondocker on the 2030 or these. Plus I think I would be best in a 7.5

 

 

 

 

Size 7 #8 CXL: I prefer the brown CXL but they only had size 9+ available so this was more to see if the size worked. The boot was stiff and kind of tough to get in but once it they fit prettywell, again it is tough to tell without some walking time how it would feel on my toes. 7 might be perfect once it stretches a bit but without having the 7.5 to try it would be hard to make a decision.

These seemed pointer compared to the other two pairs I tried on even though he said they were all on the 2030.

 

 

 

Size 7 mystery leather (I think someone here mentioned what it was): This leather was pretty stiff but I think it would break in quite nice over time. Seemed a bit dryer compared to CXL but the color was a nice true brown compared to the CXL brown which leans a bit red. This make-up with exposed eyelets would be unreal imo, not sure I liked the blind eyelets.
