I'm looking for a little advice on this... I want to get in on this order, but I'm a little concerned about the sizing and last. I own a pair of Vibergs:

Mine are a six eyelet boot, but otherwise the same as the photo. I sent in tracings for these, and was told a size 12 would fit me best. My current boots are comfortable, but I've noticed a little "buckling" of the leather around the eyelets when I tie my boots. That is, after I tie them an walk around, the leather around some of the eyelets tends to pop up or form little...hills? Please see the photos below for an example.I don't know if this is normal, I noticed this after wearing my boots a few times. Makes me wonder if I ordered boots that are too small...

 

I never thought to ask what last these boots were on (my first mto, newbie mistake) and now don't have a frame of reference for comparison. I emailed Viberg at info@viberg.com, to see if they still have my info, and have yet to hear back.

 

FYI: I wear a 13D in OSB trenches and rough outs, a 13D in Chippewas, and a UK12 in a Tricker's Eaton on 4497 last. 

 

I don't know if I should buy this latest mto in a 12 or 12 1/2? 

 

Any and all advice would be sincerely appreciated. 

The buckling that you notice is due to there being a bit too much room between eyelets.  This is why the standard service boot now has seven eyelets, rather than six.  I think that you should go with the size 12 that fits you otherwise.  Viberg has been "nudging" their models to make them better.

Thanks very much! I appreciate the advice.

Fok,

 

are we still doing the contest where someone gets the boots at half price or was that only for the inaugural run?

Hi, 

Still about sizing. I tried on Alden boots on the TruBalance last and fit well in size 8. However, there was a bit extra room in the toes. The store didn't have a smaller size, so I couldn't check if a 7.5 would fit better. What do you guys say? Go for size 8 or size a half down?

That was just for the inaugural run.  So, you are lucky.  When we have some really big runs, we might do it again.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

Depends on how much extra room.  imo, if you were comfortable with the amount of space, I'd go with the same size.  If not, take that as a learning experience and size down a bit.

Also depends on what type of sock you were wearing. For a heavier boot like Viberg I prefer something thicker like a Danner or Smart Wool compared to a dress sock. That thicker sock takes up the bit of extra room that I have

What type of socks do you typically wear with your boots? Wearing light weight vs medium weight socks can make a difference in how boots fit.

Thanks for letting me know! I consider myself quite lucky and think about it each time I put them on. Very much looking forward to this pair as well; i think its going to be a very cool makeup

Those were actually quite (medium) thick socks, not dress socks.

Will be placing my order tomorrow night...still debating the size in my silly head
