    Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

    Fantastic, so I should check back in around September to get in on the next pre-order? And was there a final production mockup for what this boot would look like?

    I'm afraid so, yeah. I was hoping that we'd make it under the wire, but that was wasn't possible. Sorry about the inconvenience, guys. I really thought that they would be here by now. I'm waiting, same as everyone else.

    It will look like a service boot! It will actually look a lot like the Cabourn boot, but without the rivet, which is proprietary. Unfortunately, getting a production mockup just tacks on double time, and I am not aware of any retailer who does this with Viberg.

    ^^ that's a bummer but I really appreciate the heads up. I have some August travel planned and had thought I would be utilizing them for it so good to know now.

    New to this site and sorry if this has been previously asked and answered. Is there a way to be notified on the next preorder or does one have to keep checking the posts? Thanks.

    If you subscribe to this page: http://www.styleforum.net/tag/viberg/threads

    You will be notified when there is a new preorder thread. Actually, I would recommend anyone interested in viberg subscribe to that thread. You can see the tags in the tag section on the right hand column. Just click on a tag and you'll go to the main page of the subject. Click on threads, and you get taken to the thread page. Then, just use the subscribe function.

    Pass the word (it's pretty useful).

    This is a great feature!

    Looking at that page, I'm wondering if there was ever a part 3 after that lasting and soling thread.

    If you tag a thread, it shows up there. There are some threads missing. Feel free to tag them. I will too if I spot them first. You can tag any thread with brand names and categories. I encourage you to do so. It helps everyone, from brand new noobs to members who have been here for the last 12 years (raises hand).

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I have a question about visiting the Viberg location in Victoria:

    From reading this thread, I've gathered that I would be able to do a custom boot order in Victoria at the warehouse if I do it in person-true? If so, would I also be able to size for a last and do it all within one day?

    Yup (and it's kind of amazing how many shoe-enthusiasts book trips to Victoria just to do that). If by sizing for a last you mean try on boots to determine your size on that last, then yeah I've heard they'll help you out with that. And then you can pick from any of their stock leathers and stock soles, of which they have a fairly decent number.

    Yes. By size for a last you mean try on what they have and see if it fits then decide what to go with. If you are a funky size maybe they would do a tracing?

    Haha I have been hitting up free Stampede (local festival & rodeo) lunches all week from my suppliers so have not had time to stop by.

    I actually think I head over there tomorrow afternoon or Monday on my day off. Need me to pick up a size 8 black french calf boot for you?

    Wish there are stores in Toronto that carry such large selections of Viberg.

    No kidding. Toronto has some great stores, but is by and large lacking in fashion options for a city its size.

    Hey I got a door prize at one of the lunches that I ended up selling for $320 (though that might go to Epaulet pants now instead of shoes... or maybe some MTM shirts from Proper Cloth) so I would have to say it worked out pretty well, plus saving on the cost of lunch all week.


    Haha I wish I could buy a round of Vibergs for the whole thread.

    Oh...you didn't know we all take turns buying rounds??? Ryden was last, then I think it was me before that and I think maybe bkotsko before that.
