    History is one thing but my main question is, dollars for donuts how do they really compare? I know the Lasts are different as well as the aesthetics. So my main concerns would be construction, quality of leather and components being used, and the quality of the product exiting the shop.

    I went WF because that seemed to be what he worked most with, and I liked how his boots looked with that leather. Everything I've read says quality of craftsmanship is comparable. He's just lacking a variety of lasts and access to some more exotic leathers at the moment.

    Based on what I have seen on the internet this was my assumption, but its good to hear from someone who is able to do a physical comparison. I do wonder how the quality of leather they use from that other tannery stacks up as well however.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    With the increased demand he certainly is going to get tested a bit for at least a little while anyway.

    Agreed. Glad I got in before it got too crazy for him.

    If they're comfortable for standing/walking for extended periods, I say go for it. My jobsite boots are WF Vibergs, and they've performed admirably. WF is extremely resilient, and it's easy to re-wax them.

    I have multiple side by side shots on my blog if you're interested. Vince's quality is superb.

    I did have a look around, thanks. I found the information you had on the Seidel Madone very interesting.

    Got my WF today and they're awesome. Specs are brown WF, black WF tongue gusseted, antique brass eyelets, no hooks, pull tab, commando sole, straight cap. Here's a pic I took today for my IG account. I'll post more pics tomorrow of the boot on and if anyone wants comparisons to Vibergs or something let me know and I'll try to make it happen.

    Out of curiosity, did people get a shoe box? I didn't, just a tote.

    I don't know if this is against the forum "rules", but if anyone regularly posts pics of their boots on IG, I'd love to check them out. Put up your account names if anyone's down with it.
