    Hey everyone,

    The boots are now for sale. As far as sizing advice goes, they are pretty typical of boots. I'd recommend a half to whole size down from what you usually wear. For reference i'm wearing a 10.5 in them right now, and i wear a 10.5 in Chucks and Desert Boots, a 44 in Common Projects, an 11.5 in most Nikes or Vans, a 10.5 in Red Wing Moc Toes, and an 11 in most dress shoes. I could get into a 10 in these Vibergs, but i just didn't envision them stretching enough to be comfortable. After about a week of wear i definitely think i made the right choice. If anyone has any other questions though, feel free to post them here.

    Thanks! Victoria has relatively mild weather compared to most of Canada, but i'll definitely be wearing mine all through Winter. If you wanted to be extra careful you could use a bit of silicone spray and some Snoseal on the seams. They should be able to handle just about any weather though. The worst thing i could think of happening would be some staining from salted streets, but even that would come right off with a suede brush or sandpaper.

    These sort of made me wish I really needed a black boot. Alas, the W+H Service boots are too similar to these to justify. Swanky beards for the feet, regardless.

    They're similar enough for someone like me, who has enough gaps in his wardrobe to be unable to justify owning two black leather boots with a similar shape, heights and general look.

    Almost all the pairs from the initial run went to locals, so i actually end up seeing them pretty frequently around town and in the shop. The next 5 or so orders when though right around the same time and should be ready to go within the next week. Hopefully most of those people will have them right around Xmas and we'll start to see some pictures of them surface.

    Love these boots from Viberg. I also liked the collab. they did with Norse Projects but I personally wouldn't buy that particular pair. However, the Japanese version of the Viberg "Service Boot" (pictured below) with the Vibram/Christy 4014 sole looks superior to the one they're selling in Canada, IMO.

    I think there were only 8 pairs of those Superdenim ones made. I've handled them in person and they are definitely cool, but the cap toe and christy sole give them a definite work vibe, which is precisely what we were trying to avoid. It's cool to see how different two boots built on the same last/pattern can look just by tweaking a couple details.
