    If we're talking about Understatesman's boots, they should be almost a year old now (first batch of stealth boots came out last Nov)

    For returns, Viberg advises to ship all packages via USPS to avoid brokerage fees on their end. I assume the same would be for resoling.

    That sucks. I checked the box and my return was processed in 2 weeks.

    OP, to be clear, the postal service policy is on Viberg's website.

    I thought I remembered an earlier post which showed those boots with all that heel counter wear after just a few weeks, but I may be wrong...

    Some quick snaps of what the cat dragged in, the new Viberg for Styleforum makeups. And they will ship on Monday and Tuesday.

    Natural cxl Derby on the 2030 last. The leather color variations are remarkable.

    Reverse smoke grey kudu service boots on the 2030 last. The nap is amazing, and gives the boots a lot of depth. Plus, the leather is so supple, it feels like wearing a super tough slipper.

    Plus, my customized natural cxl derbies:

    Those makeups are both hugely awesome and congrats to the new owners. Too bad I am late to the Viberg party or would have been all over them.

    If anyone wants to part with a 7 or 7.5 in either, please let me know!

    Safe to assume the color/finish Natural Derbys is indicative of the GMTO Natural CXL boots?

    Yes, that is the color and finish, with the natural variations between batches and hides.

    Also, don't sleep!

    They turned out great. Can't wait.

    I was thinking about adding a Vibram topy to these guys, for better traction in wet weather and general protection. Thoughts?

    Are these my two pairs? They look awesome! I cannot wait

    Ripple looks really, really nice on your pair. Not as thick or obtrusive as I expected it to be

    Well, we are going some new MTOs soon. But I am thinking of making a few styles as our signature models, including these two, that will be regularly redone, or even stocked.

    I'd be down for the natty cxl derby next round.

    Quick question: What are the chances I could have the eyelets removed from my new Vibergs? I imagine there'd be some circular impressions left behind on the outside leather once they're taken off, or am I wrong about this?

    Could a cobbler turn them into blind eyelets? What the heck are blind eyelets, anyway?

    Don't know the cobbler answer but blind eyelets like in the GSK example:
