It would be awesome to receive my boots on the 2030 before ordering a second pair. Plus that is awesome news they should be in soon!!!!!!!

I guess you're holding off on the swatches too, definitely in the market for a chukka.

Whilst we ruminate on designs gents, for your consideration, service boot in guidi horsehide; I'd be well up for this:

Yeah, I know who those boots are going to.  If he wants to reveal himself, he will.  We'll probably use Guidi future makeups, but Viberg is still experimenting with that leather, same as with the French calf, and we don't want to jump the gun before they are 100% confident in their ability to execute.  I'm going to try to get the grey swatches up, so that you guys can see those as well.  

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

If the mystery buyer is reading this, would he mind letting us know the details of the boot makeup? Also, what's an approximate cost for this MTO?
post #156 of 251
I think other than the exact name of the leather (guidi HH), the specs are

1950 service boots
10 brass eyelets
2030 last
straight cap toe
natural midsole
dainite sole
brown threads

Was told by Brett they are not taking guidi leather MTO yet...

I know who Fok is talking about, but these actually don't belong to anyone. They are a true sample. Not only the leather, but the last as well. It's a new shape we are experimenting with based off of a vintage orthopaedic shoe we purchased. If you saw it from directly above or below you could see that the entire thing curves inwards. It looks quite extreme actually, but apparently (it's too small for me to try on) it's really comfortable and matches the natural contours of a foot more closely. No idea if it's something we will put into production, but i'll take some more detailed photos soon regardless.

With the Guidi leather all we have so far is sample sides, so not enough to actually make a run of boots. We've had a chance to make sample boots out of just about all of them at this point and have placed an order with Guidi for production runs of all of it. Should be here before the year is over.

On a side note, anyone looking to keep up to date on some of the newer stuff we are offering and experimenting with the VIberg Instagram account is probably the best place, followed by our Tumblr which will be getting a lot more original content starting now.

Hey Guy,

 

Thanks for all the info on that.

 

Also I saw the tate+yoko collab, are there going to be more things of that nature ongoing with Viberg (things like moose leather, ex. water buffalo, bison etc)? Are they going to release any production bison boots?

Fok,

 

I know you said recently that round 1 boots should be almost complete. Do you have an updated sense of the timing? I would love to know when these might be ready!

Hey Rydenfan,

 

I haven't heard from Morgan yet, so I assume that they are not yet ready to be shipped.  Soon... soon...

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

What type of calf was being used before the French calf?

post #162 of 251

Did we lose some steam here.  Are we getting a peek at the grey swatches only after people get their boots?

With the first round pretty much wrapped up, I will open this up again.  I am going to post the grey swatches once I get the greenlight from Guy.  How about we try for 3 styles this time around?  I'll send at least the favorite two to the store.

 
Take a look at the main Viberg thread for inspiration: http://www.styleforum.net/t/224463/viberg-boots/  Think about how awesome a boondocker like boot would look like in Tan Bison.
 
Cheers,
 
Fok.

Grey service boot w/ black stitching, plain toe, double leather midsole on a black wedge crepe sole. Gunmetal eyelets.

Any possibility of kangaroo leather on a service boot on 2030? Maybe black or a brown color like this kangaroo leather boot (http://lo30tks8mxa0t26z.zippykid.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/visvim-Folk-Kangaroo-Leather-Virgil-Boots-1.jpeg), but with a Dainite or leather sole. Maybe plain-toed, but a straight-cap-toe might work, too. 

 

Also, maybe a black service boot on 2030 in reverse horsehide (like this http://25.media.tumblr.com/ca2cb1a9e6a1bf7f647c23f59178fd81/tumblr_mkoxz41lzJ1qgvi7no1_1280.jpg), with black edge dressing.
