    Didn't see a thread in SW&D through search (and only a small on in MC) so I wanted to see if people have any experience with these boots, namely, finding a pair. Do you have to order direct from them? I'm interested in getting the Bobcat models that's similar/same to the one in the B&S forum I think they look great, and I'm not sure if I have enough boots. [​IMG] The version of the Bobcat that's on their webpage definitely does not look like this, I think it's a model for the overseas market? [​IMG]

    I actually PM'ed the user about his boots and this is what he said To answer your question, I had them custom built through Baker's back when they still carried Viberg. http://www.bakershoe.com/

    Thanks, I PM'd that guy too. I'm trying to see if I can make them work. I'm a 44 in CP sneakers and usually an 11-11.5 in most shoes, but heard that these run about a full size big.

    I have been interested in Viberg ever since I saw this video: . Their boots appear to be really well made unlike another popular shoe manufacturer located in New England... [​IMG]

    ^Yeah, $595? Does someone have more experience with these to justify such a high price tag?

    those soles are really bad

    +1. Want to know how they wear. It seems they are using a lot of these soles in their models.

    I've checked them out in person a couple of times and they're definitely one of the most solid and attractive boots I've had the pleasure of handling. I'd love to own a pair, but the price tag is a real deterrent to a poor grad student.

    Ah, they are a bit too expensive for my liking at the moment.

    I have had the pleasure of checking them out a couple of times. They seem really sturdy, very well made and SUPER heavy (too heavy maybe). But I also have to ask, why some of their boots includes fabric like denim or a hemp canvas. I don't see either holding up as well as leather.

    I was thinking about getting some White's instead.

    They look good, but I'm sure the quality can't be THAT much greater then Red Wing or a similar brand. The prices are all absurd and I think people are trendhopping b/c Red Wing is so beyond ubiquitous.
