Viberg Boots - Page 48

post #706 of 6458

Wish I did, but no.  I will be correcting that in a few weeks.  If all goes according to plan, I'll get fitted for the Viberg lasts and order a couple of pairs.  For me, sizing is always tricky.  I don't feel comfortable ordering footwear if I haven't tried on something in the same last.

Be aware that B. Nelson cannot replicate the double row of stitching that Viberg does. I found this out after the fact when they came back with the new stitching done more or less over the top of the decorative 2nd row. See below. You can even see where the original row of stitching was much closer to the edge.







Totally ruined the look of my boots in my opinion. I haven't worn them since getting them back from B. Nelson.

Also, if you ship them in a box you want back, like the original box from the manufacturer, be sure to specify that on your order. My box was tossed and they were returned in USPS packaging that is useless for storing the boots.

Send them to Viberg for a resole and be willing to wait longer to get it done right.

B. Nelson will not do a better job than sending your boots directly back to the factory(Viberg/Whites/Alden). I had a pair of Alden Indys that I took to B. Nelson in the city. Ended up costing like $145 I think and it looked awful.

That resole is depressing. Thanks for ruining my night, jerks.

Alright guys, next round is going up at noon (Pacific) today, so in about 2 and a half hours. A pretty good range of styles going up, including a couple of handcut samples and some more rare leathers.

The Juniper service boot is pretty much exactly what I wanted in one of these boots...if only it were US sizing instead of UK frown.gif. Sent an email about 72 though.

we seem to have the same taste; I just emailed them about a custom built like that with the juniper leather.

almost pulled the trigger on #72 as well but I decided I'd better spend more to get exactly what I want
