This pair of stichdown Viberg Service Boots was purchased as a sample. They are made on a beautiful Olive calf leather with 10 eyelets, which is not available anymore. There is no heel pad but this does not affect wear and the eyelets were added. Flaws include small tearing in the leather on the bottom of the left toe (from lasting, I think) and normal sole wear (both pictured). Sizing: The 2045 last is a little more lenient than the 2030 last. I am a size 8D brannock, and these fit me perfectly with medium weight socks, but very snug with heavyweight socks. I was going to keep them, but I actually prefer the roominess of a 7.5 as opposed to most people.
