Incidentally, the tally:
$4875 + 1200 = $6075. We're making that crawl towards our goal of $15K, gentlemen. Let's see if can't make it $8K with the next auction, yes?
Auction 9: MTO Viberg Shell Cordovan Service boots.
Ends Friday, Dec 11, 2015, 12 p.m. PST (aka noon)
Let's start the bidding... now.
This is a special auction for a pair of special Made to order (MTO) Viberg boots. Thanks to Brett for offering this Incredibly generous, and really, a chance that will not come around again, as many of you know, Viberg does not do any MTOs any more.
Here are the parameters:
Available leathers: Navy. Natural and color 8 shell cordovan are all available.
Last: 2030 last.
Construction: Flat welt or split welt
Eyelets: 7 AA (regular, large sized, not recommended) or 8 small (#2 or hidden eyelets)
Edging: Choice Natural edge. Antique edge or Black edge.
Sole: Leather or dainite
Toe: Choice of plain toe, straight cap toe or brogued capttoe.
Brett Viberg: "Basically custom one off boot".
Retail: priceless. As in, Viberg will not do this for any individual customer nor even for stockists (trust me, we've asked.)
The bidding will start at $800 when this starts. Please bid in increments of $50.
Here are some pictures of boots in the different leathers.
