Yeah, I had actually thought about it, but from what I understand Viberg makes really good boots, and the boots that I have aren't that good. Actually they are a bit disappointing. Does Dayton make anything similar? Just trying to sum up every know boot manufacturer in Canada. If anybody knows anything feel free to chip in.
Just picked up these from The Bureau. http://www.thebureaubelfast.com/shop...ne-guide-boot/ Very nice. Don't like the e uk width though. are there any options for having Yuketen or someone taking some of the width out? anyone have a customer service number for yuketen? Can't get on their site with my phone.

I got a pair of the Yuketen chukkas earlier this year and was told (by Meg Co.) they were made with a "C-width last." For me they fit perfectly. They fit much better than my Quoddy bluchers, which have stretched out (it's okay for now, though -- I just keep pulling those laces tighter & tighter). I was also told (by Meg Co.) that Yuketen was switching to a wider last for their shoes & boots.
You could certainly try asking Meg Co. or a shoe repairman if there is a way to make your shoes narrower. But that seems unlikely. Personally, it seems to me you have a couple of options if they don't fit properly: try adding a foam footbed to your boots so they feel less wide, or RETURN THEM and find a pair of shoes that fit you. The premise of Yuketen is that they are small production & individually made, and they charge accordingly. Why put up with a shoe or boot that clearly doesn't feel like it's actually made for your foot? Those are great-looking boots you picked up, but Yuketens are simply too expensive to settle for anything less than a great fit.
Any more information on the pair to the right their? I'm really interest in that or in a shoe version of it. Love the laces/color/sole pretty much everything. Didn't see that on the OC site though. e: NVM found it.
I've got a pair, also got them from ebay. Not sure what the model name is, but the tongues are stamped: "23172♦7 0797". They're great shoes and a steal for the price. Not much of anything wrong with the pair i bought save for al ittle extra glue at the cap toe.
No known US stockists then? I've tried emailing them again to no avail. Maybe i'll have to give them a call.

This might have been answered already, but better twice than not at all.
