Nice.  One of the the original members is also in.  Very cool.

I'll be placing my order tomorrow.... so we'll be up to at least 18 :)

I would be in but plan to visit in person this year to get the sizing right :) Nice makeup!

Thinking about jumping on this train too, as I've been eyeing Vibergs for some time now.

For me its NOT a question of size...it's either this or the Snuff Kudu Service Boots that ought to be released in the fall.

I am not sure what all the confusion is about sizing on this??? Even though I don't own any Vibers, I feel super confident of how I would need to size these, thanks to the prior posts from Diabolical, Ambulance Chaser, misterjuiceman, and LA Guy.

I think that for such a large purchase (in terms of boots), some people want to be completely confident. Different lasts fit differently on everyone's unique feet, too. Nothing wrong with trying to dial it in so that you're not going to get something you have to turn around and sell immediately without having the recourse to exchange for a better size.

I can understand this sentiment...and I guess that I might feel similarly if I didn't own a pair of Indy's, but so goes it with ordering clothes over the internet. You're (probably) not gonna buy two or three pairs and keep the one that fits best. You'll have to rely on the knowledge of fellow posters...and this is usually very good. We've all struck out a couple times, but in the end its worth it. If for some reason these don't fit, I'd doubt that you'd have a hard time selling close to what you paid on the marketplace. A hassle? yes, but worth the reward? i'm sure.

I don't think you can be confident in sizing based off other recommendations. I agree with Fok's UK size assessment (same as Tricker's 4497) for the 2030 last but with a snugger toe box. The 2030 is very similar to my Barrie in a 1/2 size larger. I think going Barrie size would probably be too long for me. I don't wear thick socks either. But most people here are going Barrie/TB size in regards to the 2030. For those people, I am curious how they size their UK shoes/boots.

I've found that the 2030 with hiking socks fits similarly to the Barrie in dress socks in the same size. The 2030 most certainly feels like a wider last, though this could be due to the instep of the 2030.

Arrrgh now im unsure again :rotflmao:

Still not sure either if I should go with 7.5 or 8. I tried Alden TruBalance size 8 with medium thick socks and had some room left in the toes.

Depends on how much room. I prefer boots a bit loose instead of snug
post #222 of 404
Viberg can stretch boots a half size. Maybe go 7.5 and if you find them snug send them back to be stretched

I'd love to get my order in before Fri. Before I take the plunge can you guys help clarify what the boot and paneling will look like? How will it differ from the worn-in boot and mock-up pics on the SF product page? Also, I own the Viberg x 3Sixteen collab, so feel free to compare/contrast with that boot as well, and/or this boot (http://cdn.styleforum.net/b/b3/b33e6c02_image.jpeg) that's on the 2045 last.

The boondocker uses the same pattern as the service boot except its a plain toe. The mock up pic uses the 110 last and this make will be on the 2045 last. Take a look at this link for the comparison in Viberg lasts. http://vibergboot.wordpress.com/2012/12/11/lasts/. I believe the 2040 is pretty similar in shape to the 2045.

Also there won't be any speed hooks on this make up.

Wait, which boondocker has a cap toe? All the pics in the product images have plain toes, and they are all on the 110 last, correct? The pair with a captoe I linked aren't boondockers. They're waxed flesh service boots on the 2045 last. Boondockers are roughouts on 110 (or 2030). Or am I missing something..?

 

Thanks for the last comparisons. It looks like the 2040 has a pretty significant upturn in the toe. Isn't the 2045 going to have an unstructured toe?

 

Also, when you say it uses the same pattern are you referring to paneling? The service boot with a pull-up tab looks to different dovetail paneling than a service boot without a pull-up tab..

 

Alternatively, if someone wants to show off their MS Paint skills and use the white mock-up pic (110 last) on the product page as a canvas to show me how the boot we are ordering (2045 last) will differ then I would be very grateful.
