From what I've gather these run more TTS. I have yet to buy any personally, but I have been researching and asking a lot of questions. Hopefully those who have both will chime in.

I am a 8D Barrie and Size 8 in Viberg work well for me.  I have 2 pairs of Vibergs (2030 last & 1035 last), and I assume those Mahogany shell service boots are on the 2030 last

I size the same on barrie/tb as vibergs 2030/1035/2045/2040 lasts (7d)

There is a ton of sizing advice on the Viberg thread with different viewpoints that should be considered.

Aren't they going to cost a million dollars?

Isn't Viberg mahogany shell like old cigar? Brown/light in direct light and medium/dark brown in shade?

And would these be like $800 or $1500?

sorry if this is a silly or worn out question, but I can't stop looking at images on the ravello long wing bluchers.  Are these released by certain retailers or is it just a luck of the draw to find them?

Sweet god they look great. Why do they tempt with these things. Anyone want to buy/take my place on Lost & Found's pre order for a pair of Viberg's in 7.5D Natural CXL with a Brogue Captoe on the 2030 due the 2nd week of September?

It s a good deal with the exchange rate. Thought I would ask.

Have you ever seen a unicorn?

Search around the thread, great advice on what retailers to contact and don't forget to be persistent.

best bet is to contact both Alden DC and NYC and ask to be put on a list. They may tell you you are 4-5+ down the list, but you'll be surprised how people can drop off.

 

If you are close to either shop, try and stop in in person. I feel a face to face goes a long way.

 

In my experience, Alden SF doesn't do rare stuff. The couple times I've gone in, I couldn't throw money at them for almost anything in my size, rare or not (talking indys, suede, etc even).

 

The smaller retailers don't seem to get the rare shell nowadays, atleast from what I've seen.

 

The B&S forum here, grailed, and on the goodyearwelt subreddit are all good places to look. I have my best luck selling on goodyearwelt, never bought/sold on grailed.  I try to avoid ebay.

No because you won't actually be able to buy them.  It will go something like this:

 

1)  Pre-order opens!

 

2) 0.000000000000000000088984397 seconds later, site flips out.

 

3) 20 minutes of chaos and confusion.

 

4) Boots be all goneeeeeeeeee.  (Mostly to China/Kazahkbekistan)

Are your EP boots black shell on commando soles? Essentially are they the same as Leffot except commando instead of crepe?
