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!
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.
