I'll wait for this to drop in the sale. Kind of a polarizing piece so I bet it'll be around for a bit.

Let me know when you get these, I am in love with LeU.

What about Viberg scout boot or OSB trench with vibram sole? I'm not sure about having a cap toe on thick soles but those are the only two other alternatives I've found. OSB have a cap toe, scout boot does not (or some do i think). I'd need something I can actually step in snow and slush with too. Roughout seems the best choice? Don't know about the visvim kangaroo leather.

Viberg is a good alternative. I have quite liked what I've seen and tried on from them. No experience with OSB since I've no interest in it.

I wouldn't wear Virgils in snow. The soles can get pretty slippery once they wear in, especially on slushy/icy surfaces.

I own a pair of roughout Vibergs. Doesn't make me want Virgils any less.
post #38015 of 39280
I bought a pair of roughout bobcats (but they didn't fit) after owning a pair of virgils for a really long time, so honestly everyone should just buy both.

What do you think about virgil low? 

post #38017 of 39280
I really like them. I want a pair so bad but haven't been successful in finding a pair in my size at a reasonable price. They are a good choice if you like chunky-ish derbies and like to wear rolled pants a lot. Otherwise I think virgil boots are more robust

i usually save an item i am interested in and if I still want it after a week or two I will buy it.

Can Virgils or roughout Vibergs be resoled? Also is there a difference between the Kangaroo Virgils with the completely flat soles and the ones I posted?

Visvim footwear is nice, I normally don't like fashion brand shoes but almost bought a few pairs last time I was in Japan, just couldn't get size + colors I wanted

Viberg is equally nice, lots of hype and I was a bit hesitant paying $800+ for luxury calfskin workwear but quite satisfied

For a tougher boot I would probably go viberg.

A few trickers boots on sale at the bureau might be worth a look too

All are resoleable though viberg is a little trickier

Will wear them casually with pieces from Peir Wu, Yang Li, COS, Cons and Vans.

Might taper them.

I dig. Plus, now you have a place to store your tots

I was looking at those too, scared to order "big" pants without trying them on first though
Anyway if you get them (which you should :nodding:) I really really don't think you should taper them, silhouette and drape is already superb

never taper
