As somebody just catching up/educating myself on Viberg, I need to find myself some examples of the 2040 last, knowing only the 2030.  Also will need to figure out sizing, but that's not such a concern.  Is the brogued cap toe similar to that on the nattys that Rydenfan just posted?  (Btw, those look tremendous.)  I can go either way on that --- brogue on just a normal captoe.  The dainite sounds good.

 

EDIT: 2040 looks great to me.  Sizing figured out.  Can't wait to do this - been looking for a loden boot for a while but color has never been dark enough for my liking.  This is perfect.

Here are the grey swatches, both the smooth side out, and the roughout.

 

1) Heather grey (not available, but put there for comparison)

2) Latigo Grey

3) Ebony Essex (beautiful dark brown smooth side, and a grey brown roughout)

4) White

Ebony essex 2030 scout boot plain unstructured toe Vibram sole..... pullleaaasse!
post #188 of 251

Thanks Fok for the swatches.

 

I think going for a chukka would be a good alternative to all the service boots.

 

How about the Ebony Essex Roughout chukka on a 2030 last with a 2060 beige vibram sole?  Would def be 100% in for that one.  I think it would look like this with the above leather...would slay...

I'm REALLY not a fan of that sole, but I want the chukka.

I will have to fiddle with settings on my camera--I took pictures but they came out looking like black.

But there is a pair on ebay of the exact boots I have -in the loden green--that looks ok on my monitor in terms of the color, so worth checking out:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Viberg-Loden-Green-Dainite-Sole-Leather-Chukka-Boots-UK9-US-10-/161138597332?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item25849bddd4

thanks cpress, that color looks very appealing; very different from the service boot posted earlier which was a lot more pronounced in the green color range

It's a super dark color.  Under some lighting conditions, it looks nearly black.  I like those pictures from Ebay, which show the deep, mossy, character of the color.  I can't for the life of me get the color on camera, but those Ebay pictures are pretty close.  

 

Okay, so, tan bison boot (scout or service? I sorta like the Scout for a plain toe - it's a little more special) on the 110 last, loden green service boot, maybe a brogued captoe, on the 2040 last, and an ebony essex roughout chukka, maybe on the 2030 last, maybe on a wedge sole?  Oh man, all those sound really good.  I want a pair too, but it's hard to choose.  Probably tan bison, but the other choices are enticing...

If it was with the wedge sole I would put money down for it right now

Wish I could get behind a chukka frown.gif Looks like I may have to give in and go direct, roughout of that ebony essex is quite awesome.
post #195 of 251

Any interest in the ebony essex roughout in the 145 oxford instead of chukka?
