Is there an overview, how any of the (through viberg used) lasts is shaped?

Can I measure my feet and judge it from there?

 

I would love to take part in the next sample sale round, but need to know more about that.

 

Thanks a lot!

 

Zola

 

Jumping off this - can someone here re-post that link to the Viberg lasts? Thanks...

I believe that you can make a tracing of your feet and send it to Viberg and they will advise you on sizing. However, I have never done that myself. I just think I remember reading that stated somewhere (but I may be imaging it).

Although I am sure that the sizing advice on the board is overall close, It does seem like there might be some significant variance based on foot shape or something. Based on advice comparing to Alden and Red Wing sizing, I would have thought I was a 8.5 or maybe a 9.0 in the 2030, but I took a chance on the #8 cordovan service boot in 9.5 from the sample sale and it fits me really well (I might be able to make 9.0 work, too, but I seriously doubt 8.5 would have). Btw, it is just about the most amazing boot ever. Viberg hooked me with this sale.

So you're the lucky guy! As much as I like my ice mocha service boots, I really think the 2 shell boots were the highlights of this sample sale.

 Great stuff, it looks like the 110 last is the fullest. Which I need.

Those pictures are of different widths though...Not sure you can tell 110 is the widest.

Yes, it kind of looks it though. I also just spoke to Morgan at Viberg on my special order - it seems that the 110 is the fullest/widest in the toe box.

160 is pretty wide too

Thanks for posting those pics. Firms up the 2030 being the right choice for me

Thanks a lot Finn! Do you or anyone know which last this one is:

http://www.manufactum.de/viberg-shell-cordovan-boot-p1457173/

 

I  guess it is the 1940 service boot shape.

I tried this one in the shop and it fit perfectly in 8.5, but the price of 800€ was too much..

 

looking for something similar in calfskin or suede.

 

Thanks for all the replies, fantastic thread and really exciting to follow..!

fantastic boot, iotan! Thanks for your reply. exactly what I´m looking for as well! Is it this one?:

http://www.manufactum.de/viberg-shell-cordovan-boot-p1457173/ ???

 

My feet are not that wide, so I guess the 110 last would fit me well.

I´m a 8.5 in all my Red Wing and 8.5 in my Wolverine Boots and 9.0 in Yuketen Maine Guide and Country Chukka, 8.5 in the Yuketen Country Ranger.

When I tried the cordovan service boot at our local store here in munich, it fit me well in 8.5 (not sure which last it is)

http://www.manufactum.de/viberg-shell-cordovan-boot-p1457173/

 

Does that mean, that 8.5 should be good for all other models too?

 

Thanks a lot!

Viberg hooked me a s well with this sale, looking forward to what´s coming up next week, although with the time difference to europe I will probably miss the start again..

not to a 100%...if you can fit the 2030 last in a 8.5, then you could size down a half size in the other lasts, such as 160, 2040 and 310, since the toebox of these lasts is pretty roomy imo!

i´ve owned the collab boot 4HorsemenxViberg 1940 service boot (2030 last) in UK8.5 and couldn´t really enjoy wearing them since the toebox was just too narrow/flat for my feet! sold them after only a few days/weeks of wear...

the IHxViberg collab boot (160 last) and the 1950 service boot (310 last) i own are a both UK9 and the fit on those is pretty much perfect, so imo one should go true to size or even 0.5 up when chosing the 2030 last (well that´s at least what i´m going to do when ordering a boot in that last the next time!)...so UK9 or even UK9.5 for me when going with the 2030 last!

Thanks, Finn I really appreciate it!
Just two more questions:
- the shell cordovan service boot is the only viberg boot I tried so far. The leather was very soft and the shoe very comfortable. Do I have to expect the "normal" cowhide boots to be very stiff and hard to break in? My RW Beckmans almost killed me...
- is the viberg sizing here (in the sample sale) uk sizing? That would mean my US 8.5 is a UK 7.5?

I would think shell would be stiffer?

PhiPsi32,

I think you have a few different custom Vibergs on order, is that right? If so, I would love to know what makeups you went with
