    Yes, I'm the same size across the board. Not sure why, but I seem to be in the minority in that regard. Most seem to size up or down 1/2 based on various lasts. But I am consistently a 9.5 and it just works for me. Having said that, I can wear a half size down on the 110 and it's fine, but my toe is right at the tip and it's not as good even though it works.

    Thanks again for the input. Just wanting to be prepared in case something interesting comes up. Always need to be ready to act quickly!

    Ditto here. I'm a 10 barrie and bought a 9.5 in the 110 last... I think I'd go up to 10 if I bought it again, even though after breaking in it's a decent fit. A little tight on the vamp and like you said a little short. I am really more of an E width so tend to size for width and come up a little short in length so I can get away with it.

    So the left is 110 last and right is 1035 last, right?

    And would someone tell me the difference between 110 and 1035 last, seems like these two lasts are pretty similar in pics, thx.

    Correct...left side is 110, right side is 1035. The differences between them are much more apparent in real life than in the photos. Shape is similar, though slightly different. Toe box height is very different. The 110 last is higher, the 1035 more of a low profile. The analogy I gave of the 1035 being more like a Clark's desert boot in profile and the 110 being more like a chunky work boot pretty much describes it. I will try to post some more pics to better illustrate later.

    What I think is that I should have bought these from Viberg instead of my OSB roughouts.... great looking boots!

    I can't imagine that ever being the case. I'm notorious for buying doubles of things that I love. Especially if the chances of getting another pair down the road is scarce. Anyone else ever buy doubles of things?

    i guess i could see myself doing the same thing. atleast the two boots arent identical. atleast not to viberg peeps in the know.

    do you plan on spraying the boots with water repellant. that might also darken them

    It looks like the 110's have already been treated at the factory. I will definitely be treating the 1035's though.

    I would have bought 4 pairs of them knowing that it could never happen again.
