Guy was supposed to do this, but the man is busy.  I posted a description of the differences between the most popular lasts (110, 2030, 2040) in a post in the Viberg thread, though, that was taken from the Viberg blog).

Pictures only if I remember correctly, right.

So, just had a little email exchange with Guy, and the Ebony Essex, well, there is not a lot of it.  I've reserved it, and there maybe enough to squeeze out 4 chukkas, and that would be it.  That would be all the Vibergs done in that leather, period.  Price would be $670 shipped within in the CONUS, and $695 shipped worldwide.  I think that it would be a cool chukka.  Sorta thinking that maybe I'll get a pair for myself, if this make goes forward.  Between this and the bison scout boot, right now.  But the take home is that the chukka in Ebony Essex, if it goes forward, is going to go to the first 3, maybe first 4, movers, and then it would be done.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

details? what kind of sole?
post #229 of 251

Sound great man!  I am definitely in for the chukka (2030 last amirite?).  I'm cool with whatever eyelets you guys choose and I dig the 2060 beige vibram sole. 

 

I'm envisioning that the ebony essex is something that would go well with a wardrobe full of greys, blues and browns.  :nodding:

Hmmm... there might not be enough for a full run, so we are looking into alternatives of grey-browns and brown greys.  

 

My wardrobe is exactly the same - full of greys and blues, and some browns, so I'm looking at leather swatches with the same criteria in mind.  I don't mind doing the chukka on a 2030 last, since it's not a service boot.  

 

On further consideration, and since people really seem to want it, the Loden boot will probably be on the 2030 last as well.

 

But the scout boot, the tan bison bookdocker, that would be on the 110 last, most likely, just like the boondocker, or the 2040 last.  I feel that the some bison leather and the double sole calls for something more casual looking than the 2030.

 

Thoughts?

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

I think so.  I've not heard any restrictions.  Many chukkas use blind eyelets, which is probably the reason for the previous choices.  But I've seen a lot with metal eyelets as well, and I think that subtly contrasting eyelets that bring out the colors in a leather is a really nice detail.

 

Cheers,

Something like the sole on ben2t's would be perfect if you ask me.

Trying to figure out what this is referring to?

Ebony Essex rough out.

I also think if the chukka has to be on 2030 last, that single leather sole / dainite combo would look better than 2060. Here is another photo that I found on twitter of the chukka (nubuck) on 2030 last:

The chukka in which I am really very interested remains ebony essex roughout + 110 or 2045 last + 2060 beige sole though.

The very casual roughout leather + dressy 2030 last + Sporty wedge sole is really not a good combo imho. Viberg has some light gray 2030 last boots on their website, and for some reason these are just not appealing to me (hope I am not alone). Would have been a different story if it had a more round shaped toe.

I would love to see that Bison in the moccasin form you mentioned earlier or as a chukka!

I'm totally in if we use the 110 last. Anybody have anything to say about the durability and water resistance of Viberg's leather boondocker sole?

It's definitely durable and water resistant, but it is slippery on certain surfaces, even after months of wear.

I always recommend a topy, for any leather sole, of any type.  

 

So, I want to start a poll very early next week.  Get your ducks in order, and we'll get this thing going.  We are going to do a short, 1 week poll and feedback, and then get the boots ready for presale.  The rules are going to be a little different this time, in order to avoid confusion and to streamline things, but I expect that for most people, this won't be a problem at all.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.
