Viberg for Styleforummarket.com MTO - Copper task roughout service boot on the 110 last - Page 3

post #31 of 56

Is there any way to guarantee that the sole will be Dainite and NOT Itshide?

 

Not so keen on Itshide after seeing so many examples of Viberg's with damaged soles after only a few wears...

Nope, no limit.  I suppose that if we got 100 orders, then there might be an issue with with amount of leather needed, but we've ordered close to 30 pairs of one makeup before, and we've had no problem.

I think that we won't have a choice on this.  Obviously, we can ask for dainite, but Viberg has the option of using an Itshide sole if needed.  From what I understand, though, I am sure that Viberg will stand by its product, not matter what.  If worst comes to worst, and an Itshide sole breaks (normal wear and tear excepted, obviously), Styleforummarket will issue a credit for a replacement sole to be put on at your local cobbler.

I am not in on this particular makeup either but I still see he appeal of it and why others would be.

 

 

Not at all.  You obviously have misunderstood my posts.  

I have had no problems participating in a Trickers makeup on this forum - and buying an additional 6 pairs of Trickers/1 pair of Church's from Richard during 2013 alone (in reply to your price comment posted above).

 

Based upon your post I will refrain from further comments on this thread.

 

When the final specifications are determined by the majority I will make my decision on whether or not I wish to participate.  My comments regarding lasts, leather and ornamentation stand as already posted.

 

Best wishes

Buzzlulu

 

PS - as previously posted on this thread (or on the Trickers thread - I do not remember which) - my comments and opinions as to specifications come from the experience of a 30 year career designing and manufacturing Mens shoes in Italy.  Richard can comment further on this (if he reads this thread)

I'm not one to baby my boots (especially a work boot), but can anyone comment on how roughout holds up in wet conditions? Moving to Portland has made me much more careful about which shoes I acquire (unfortunately)...

 

That being said, Dainite soles are now my best friend.

I don't baby my boots either.  Roughout holds up well, in general.  Of course, it depends specifically on the type of leather being used, but in my experience, something like the copper task is up to the task, pun slightly intended.  That said, the boots aren't waterproof.  If not treated, and you step ankle deep in a puddle, your feet will get wet.  The water can leak through the seams, and then into the boots.  But if you are just walking around the city, and you are not in a typhoon, you'll be fine.

 

fwiw, I grew up by Lake Ontario, and we had freeze/thaw winters, and I can tell you, from first hand experience of many winters slogging through ankle deep slush, that only multi-ply goretex boots are actually watertight.

Does anyone have any pictures of the Viberg x Cabourn on feet or with an outfit? Can't seem to find anything.

Fok, thanks for your answer. I think you may have just convinced me. I suppose my concerns were more in the water damage camp and less in the area of waterproofing or wet feet - to me that comes with the territory. I think I'll take my chances, considering Portland tends to be an always on drizzle rather than severe storms (for now...).

 

Looking forward to the make-up. Thanks!

I was under the impression the 2040 only really had that noticeable bump with a box toe? I'm sure I've seen a roughout, unstructured 2040 service boot on here somewhere. Flat as a 2030 unstructured IIRC, but perhaps they had been significantly worn in.

Check the new cinnamon and mocha service boots on viberg.com, they're both on 2040 and unstructured. It seems kind of redundant to make this copper task on the 2040 when 2 rough out service boots were just released on the 2040 in rough out.

I think that we will use the 110, if only because we haven't yet.

This might be my first group order on this site.  Any chance of an estimate of the price? Thanks!

post #43 of 56

Any chance of a copper task smooth in the future? I prefer that over the roughout ATM

Actually, this project is on hold while we find a replacement leather.  There was a ton of copper task, and then... it was all used up.  Probably won't be stocked again, but Viberg is looking into a very similar replacement leather from Horween (as opposed to Seidel, which is where the copper task came from.)

 

Hold on though.  We should have a solution within the month.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

The price will be just around $750, shipped anywhere in the world (some exceptions obviously apply.)

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.
