I have ordered a pair of boots from Prof Barnets and I should have them in about 4 weeks. I’ll post a review here.

more so the former. was mainly referring to the more popular brands like onderhoud, benzein, renav, etc. It seems like their stitching is more clean than viberg and I haven't seen anyone post about crooked captoes, poorly punched brogue captoes, and other issues that people have had with vibergIs the statement that the "quality" is better just a subjective statement or are you familiar with the components that they use? If the latter I'd love to be educated as I don't think I've ever bothered to ask. I know Winson for instance you can upgrade to leather toe puffs
I think they are also more willing to fix mistakes. I had a pair made by Renav that were not the correct size and they did remake themmore so the former. was mainly referring to the more popular brands like onderhoud, benzein, renav, etc. It seems like their stitching is more clean than viberg and I haven't seen anyone post about crooked captoes, poorly punched brogue captoes, and other issues that people have had with viberg
I'd agree with the first, but their 'value propoisition' is really not that great. Sure, you might want to pay that money if you like that look, and at sale prices they are definitely worth it, but at full price there are quite a few better bang-for-your-buck bootmakers in North America, even before you start looking at Indonesia.I still like Viberg and I don’t think their value proposition is bad.
If I were you, I'd also include Txture and Junkard on that list, especially if you want winter-compatible boots. They both do Commando and other Vibram soles (of several types) and also Norwegian and Weldtschoen construction with stormwelting. They both have a variable selection of leathers, but currently Txture have some C.F.Stead Kudu in various colours, and Junkard specializes in Shell, but has some Horween Chomexcel, for tougher conditions.Hello everyone, this is my first post on this site! I am currently looking into buying a pair of Indonesian service boots for use during Illinois wintertime as I will be going there (UIUC) for my undergraduate studies this coming semester. I am currently deciding between Santalum, Monroe Heritage, Imperium, Renav, and Benzein.
