Im assuming the partially structured vote is on top at this point ;)
Viberg for Styleforum HoF GMTO - The Hopper Boot ORDER NOW - Page 2
unstructured means that there is no "sappa" or harder leather part that keeps the toe shaped. The partially structured toe that Viberg uses has a harder part in the toe that is called, endearingly, "Ping Pong". The partially strutured toe will have a slightly higher toebox.
I don't own any Alden, but I think that people typically get the same on Viberg 2005 as in their Barrie size.
Yeah. I stupidly passed on my own GMTO, but won't do that this time round. I Was tempted to steal someone's pair... "Sorry, they shortshipped us..." Didn't, but was tempted, for real.
@LA Guy I know you got the business model figured out Fok but I would love to have 50% preorder model reintroduced. I bet it will double, if not triple the orders.
We did this the first 2x time around, and we didn't see a drop off when we went to this model, just much less hassle - despite our putting 50% deposit, some people thought that the 1/2 amount was the full amount, which led to considerable handwrining in a few cases - and much easier to get the boots out the door. I think that the typical Viberg customer is able to buy the boots outright. I am willing to consider the deposit model though, especially with the longer lead times with Viberg these days.
Just curious since I haven't ordered a pair of Viberg boots in a GMTO format before, what's the average lead time?
Need to figure out sizing too, been doing some research and I think I'll likely be an 11 since I take an 11.5 in my Alden Indy boots on the Truebalance last.
I was quoted a lead time of 4 months this time. We have had some delays in the recent past. but with just the one makeup this time, I see a loss less of an issue this time.
