Viberg for Styleforummarket makeup: Wax flesh Service Boot - Page 25

post #361 of 404

Finally got these today...These waxed flesh boots are serious sh$t kickers! I am super psyched with them. The toe box is certainly more rounded than the 2030 but I think it works perfectly for this makeup. Fok, thanks for another super makeup!

Good evening Gents - received mine over the weekend and wanted to post a few comparison shots.

Viberg Boondocker, 2030 last in Horween natural chromexcel rough out (Leffot) v. Viberg Service Boot, 2045 last in Horween waxed flesh for styleforum (both are size 10.5):




2030 and 2045 curve in slightly different places but the main difference I see is the taller, slightly rounder toe box on the 2045 (which I've started pressing down a bit since this was taken):


Alden Barrie last boot v. 2045 last (both size 10.5):




The 2045 Service Boot appears very solid and heavy duty. Check out the nails on the Commando sole heel:


I've had the 2030 Boondockers for about four months and they are still quite stiff. They don't rub or pinch or anything like that - in fact they are quite comfortable - but the thick leather sole doesn't bend much at all. I had two near nasty falls walking down my old rickity basement stairs. The 2045s have the Commando sole (and hopefully more grip) but they feel quite stiff too - much more so than an Alden double sole boot. Expect a longer break-in period for Vibergs. That said, the Service Boots look and feel great. Sizing is perfect. Love the leather, stitching and general feel of the boot.

Thanks for putting this special run together, Fok.

Yeah, for sure, these 2045 wax flesh boots are the meanest bear-stomping boots I own. I agree that my two new Vibergs will surely take more time to break in than the other brands I have.

Any other international buyers stuck at this stage?


Also, looking at the pictures it seems that they come with both leather and waxed cotton(?) laces - is that right?

You might want to check your own national post office site as well.  Sometimes, there is a loss of communication between the postal services when it crosses borders.

 

Yes, the boots come with 2 sets of laces, leather and waxed cotton.  That way, you have choices!

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

Fok shipped these boots from Moscow, ID so I didn't have to go through that for these.  But on the boots I ordered directly from Viberg, they lingered with that status for three days.  So I'd guess that they'll be released today or tomorrow.

 

And yes, the wax flesh boots come with both leather and waxed cotton laces.

 

Edit: Fok beat me to it.

I'm okay with no treatment. I'm usually too lazy to condition and shine my shoes that require that treatment.

Thanks guys. Not sure I'm sold on the leather laces yet but I definitely like the waxed ones - good to have the choice.

Yup, checking local post too (somewhat obsessively) but still in SF as far as they are concerned. I must try to be patient!

My pair were processed through customs and they left RICHMOND, BC. The estimated date is for Monday but I'm hoping they'll be here by Friday. If you're in Canada, you can go to the canada post website and punch the same tracking number there.

I generally liked the waxed laces but I am going with the leather ones on these

post #371 of 404

I am going with the leather laces initially. After a while, when they're worn in and as distressing appears, I think I'll switch to olive waxed laces as shown in O.G post :p

Got mine! A bit bigger than i expected...but no heel slippage, so I think I'm good. Beautiful!!!!!!!! BOOTS!!!!!! Thanks LA guy

post #373 of 404

I also got mine last week and been wearing them around the house a little.  I think they might be slightly too big :(.  I ordered a 9.0 which is the same as my Alden Barrie/Trubalance size... but it looks like my foot would be better off in an 8.5.

 

Anyone interested in a trade?

post #374 of 404
Got mine in Paris on Wednesday. Half size down, I.e. Barrie's, is perfect. Wore them for five hours on Friday, no breakin required, including 3hour drive in hoilidays traffic. Then I played soccer with my son. I felt like Tom Dempsey kicking a field goal.

These are seriously great boots. The few scuff marks I have are a little furry already.

Have anyone had issues when you take the boot off, your sock rubs against the bottom of the boot, and sort of peels a layer off? like if the glue was not strong enough?
