A little fancy but the bullhide looks dreamy.

The Vibergs are at least 2x the thickness compared to my scarpas...the first boot is a SL' that has the horrible kobgnobler type leather,the second boot is a SL2 that was a good boot with nice leather
but in no way anywhere near a Viberg.

Hi Bootcan,

 

Nice set of shoes you've got there. Obviously you have tried a pair or two, and you seem to prefer the heavier, full grain leather versions, with the classic roccia block sole from Vibram. Both solid and robust options. Diemme Roccia Vet is a lightweight boot, made primarily for city use. The boots are of first class quality, made of mostly italian components (except a few leather qualities from the UK and Switzerland). As some say, it is like putting on a sneaker. Not bad compared to an unlined Red Wing, for instance. 

 

Anyway, comparing the quality of Viberg and Diemme is useless if you do not compare the product's purpose. For instance, I doubt that you can affirm that any Viberg boot is of better quality than this Siberia boot from Diemme: http://diemmefootwear.com/product/Tibet%20Brown . The boots gets expensive though, as the leather is 30-40% more expensive than the Horwean's you are quoting. Thus, quality is a matter of purpose, and the producers preferred retail price. In between you've got vanity, style, shapes and colours. 

 

It's as simple as that. 

 

Hike or die!

Well these Diemme are nice mountain boots, but if i was looking at "mountain" boots then i would order from Gronell.

Very into those Vibergs. Diemme seems fun, but in this case sometimes it's better to get the real deal.

Diemme are comfortable like sneakers, have proper Vibam soles, well made. As I have around 200 pairs of shoes (proud disciple of aportnoy:)), obviously I will only wear these 3 or 4 times per year. I'll change the electric blue laces. Not sure I picked the best color, I would have preffered them in military green.

These Roccias are not bad looking...change the laces and i'd wear them..
but what were they thinking with these?-http://diemmefootwear.com/collections/New%20Tirol%20Wing

If they were going for the ugliest looking boot of all time..then they hit it perfectly with this one.
