    Seriously, order them both. I find that Barneys has the worst (i.e. inconsistent) sizing protocols of all time. It's essentially a toss up. When you get the boots, look at the Viberg sizing, and go according to that.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Seconding Fok's advice, Barneys are really confusing the issue. Order both, figure out your size, send back.

    $1770-1930 is a ton of money for people to be dropping just to try on shoes

    Christ, I only just clicked the link! Barneys are charging a hefty premium for Viberg…!

    Still, unless something goes horribly wrong you'll be getting your money back no?

    It costs you nothing really, mis-sizing your vibergs...now that costs you $$

    I mean it's little risk as barneys is a big store and you shouldn't have issues

    But still some risk like what if package lost / damaged and you get a stingy SA at barneys

    Also depends on your available credit limit on you cc

    I always assumed the lasts were made in-house. Who's making the lasts?

    Are the boots that are posted up on Viberg.com available to be shipped now if purchased? Or is there still a, like, 5 year wait time?

    I just sent my tracings off to Morgan. I am really curious what he will recommend compared to what I am thinking

    Re: 2030 last,

    I found it to be pretty shallow in the toe box as has been described here. The breaking in process was a bit uncomfortable, I'm used to getting heel blisters on new footwear I walk too much in but a blister on top of the big toe was new to me. Now that they're broken in the toe box is extremely supple and the boot now conforms to everything from the ball of my foot to the tip of my toes. I'm not used to the leather of a toe box resting on top of my toes, but now it is extremely comfortable. It's so damn comfortable I want to call it a slipper boot.

    I think they might be selling them at super denim in the UK? I'm also selling that but with a toecap.

    Ended up picking these up blindly for under $300. I absolutely love everything about them but they were 8.5d and I'm normally a 9d in red wings.

    Lets hope I didn't blow it.

    Good show. I was eyeing those for weeks. Other than the marks on the counters they looked brand new
