Cobbling together one's shit can be a formidable challenge. We all wish you our best in this endeavor. 

Paypal locked and loaded.

There was just one boot, a remake of the Hopper in Aged Bark with partially structured toe.

When it was announced that the chamois leather was no longer available natural waxed flesh was offered as an option as well.

Hi guys,

 
I have good news and a question.  The first is that our boots are slated for production.  However, Viberg no longer has the tobacco chamois in stock. After discussion with Viberg, we've decided to change the leather to the aged bark, which is in the same area in the color spectrum, and same weight and feel.  On a pantone chart, it would be several spaces over towards the red part of the spectrum, but it has the same dark low tones.  Here is a picture of the aged bark chukkas we did, which is a little dark, but shows the tone of the leather.

I really like this change, but I can also understand if this is not what you signed up for, and can issue a refund for your deposit if you wish.
 
I am going to finalize the order at the EBD (Pacific time) August 3, 2016, so as to not delay production.  Please tell me if you wish for a refund by that time, and I can issue it immediately.  
 
Otherwise, I will assume that you wish to continue with the project to get a kick ass pair of boots (I didn't order a pair for myself the first time, and am kicking myself still.  This is my second chance).  
 
You may also write to this email with any questions or concerns.
 
Cheers,
 
Fok.
 
Please PM me if you are interested in getting in on the preorder.

I do not recall any mention of a Waxed Flesh hopper, I just reread the email as well. The instagram photo only showed Aged Bark, I think you might be mistaken.  If I am wrong, my apologies, I was trying to be helpful.

Huh, maybe not everyone got the amended email? Just checked my order status and it indeed says Waxed Flesh. Guess we'll find out soon enough anyway.

Interesting, I obviously went Aged Bark lol.  Not sure what I would have done if given a choice.

There was a literal last hour possible change in plans.  Some really wanted the aged bark, and a few people had expressed concerns, so I threw a Hail Mary not expecting any results.  Got the news that we could change part of our order, and with about an hour to go to send in the amended order, I called an audible.  Not perfect communications, and only those who had expressed grave reservations about aged bark got the second email, since I'd already split up the email lists.  probably not that 100% best call, but hopefully everyone will be happy with the results.

Mystery solved. Still dont know what I would have done with the choice between those two, a waxed flesh engineer sounds pretty cool.

I agree, would've been a tough decision.

I think the aged bark will be very nice though.

Yeah, sorry.  I was just trying to get the numbers to work and to not have any more hold ups.

No worries, we'll end up with boots that we really enjoy regardless I'm sure of it. 

Just thankful that you're able to organize GMTO's for us!
