I couldn't find any, but looking at the side view it seems to be leather. The Dainite sole on the FSC and Superdenim boots looks distinctly different to me from the boondocker picture.

So I am all for either being authentic to what would have been on the original WW2 version or the Danite sole from the FSC boot. Leaning a little toward the original since I have the FSC boot on the way.

Exciting News to Relay from Brett Viberg.

Just heard back from B. Viberg on most of the questions we've had. And there's good news to report.

1) First, although all other specs for the group order will need to be the same, Viberg is willing to allow for individual customization on the soles. So, feel free to choose your heart's delight: Vibram 430 (i.e. commando), Dainite, leather, Vibram 700 etc. (FYI, the boot as pictured is indeed on leather outsoles.)

2) Price will be $665 with a 10% discount, bringing the total to around: $600.

3) Payment for this MTO will be a 50% upfront deposit, followed later by full payment.

4) Viberg lead times are at about 4.5 - 5 months from the time the order is placed so, if ordered reasonably soon, we can expect a late Feb or early March delivery.

If you are in on the order, please confirm again and select your preferred soles.

And please note any other q's or issues......

In with the most historically accurate sole (leather?). Is this their UK or US sizing?

I'm still in. I will stick with the dainite sole please (it rains constantly here even in summer).

Hmm... a question for danite vs Mini commando soles. I personally have no problem wearing the latter soles in light snow & rain. But is danite sole better in terms of traction?

Many people think Dainite is better in ice and snow, but this seems to be pure illusion. I've seen on other threads (Carmina shoe p0rn thread) where people who actually have the Dainite soles say they are terrible for traction on ice and snow.

I am definitely interested, anyone have any viberg sizing tips? I'm TTS 12D but take an 11E comfortably on Alden's Truebalance.

I'm interested, but also need to figure out sizing. Would I need to specify a size or can I send the measurements form posted earlier?

It appears based on some quick research that the original boondockers were on composite soles, very similar in look to dainite.

Are the Viberg x SF basically the same boots described here in Viberg's blog?
