1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    For sale, Viberg Walnut Cordvan Service Boots - Brand NeW

    One of a kind - This is the exact boot that Viberg uses for their Facebook profile picture. It was made as a sample for trade shows and has never been worn.

    2030 last. daintiest Sole. 10 eyelet plain toe 1950 Service Boot. UK size 8. US size 8.5

    These run small and although they say size 8 (9 US), they are more like a 7.5 (8.5 US)

    I had been trying to buy these boots for a very long time and when they arrived, they were too small. It broke my soul...to have one of a kind Viberg Boots in the rarest Horween Shell Cordovan. The boots will last forever and are quite unique. You can see the a Horween stamp inside of each boot are unlined.

    Pictures of this boot can be seen on the Viberg Blog as in my pictures below ( I am a horrible photographer)

    Viberg Service Boots, or any Viberg Boot for that matter, have only ever been made in cordovan for two retailers in the World in quantities of 25 and 25, 50 total.There was a Black Cordovan Service boot made for Manufactum in Germany and, just recently, a run of #8 Cordovan 1950 Service Boots.

    Viberg will not be making any more Cordovan until they settle sourcing issues. Leffot sold out in preorders and Manufactum is sold out as well.

    These boots were made before what appears to be a very inconsistent time recently for Horween in the colors and quality of their shells. Additionally, demand for Horween cordovan has spiked and production has not increased, so it's a tough time for companies that use and customers that want Cordovan items.

    Horween has always made the best cordovan, but Viberg will not use anything less than the absolute most pristine shells. In order to get Walnut, Whiskey or Ravello shells, Horween has to start with the highest quality shell. Any lower quality shells with inconsistencies can be dyed dark to #8 or Black.


    The sizing is between an 8/8.5 US AND A 7/7.5 UK

    THIS IS THE ONLY WALNUT CORDOVAN SERVICE BOOT EVER MADE:
    Walnut ws a color crated recently by Horween for another company and is somewhere betwween Whiskey and Ravello.

    Brand New and never worn. Only used as a display at trade shows by Viberg.

    $815 plus $35 shipping. If it is international additional rates my apply.

    "These run small and although they say size 8 (9 US), they are more like a 7.5 (8.5 US)"... so close
