    ^You'd be hard pressed to find a pair of Vibergs of any style for under $600, unless it's a private sale.

    Just drop one size from your true/actual size.

    For me, I wear US7 in the Barrie. Since the Barrie fits half a size bigger, my true/actual size is US7.5. Thus, my Viberg (145 Oxford) is UK6.5. IMO, I think Viberg fits true to UK size.

    That's weird!!! They were online last week when I was checking them out. Call the SF store cuz they still have some sizes in stock for the Suede boots. Size down from your normal shoes.
    I took size 8 and normally I'm 9D for Aldens (Barrie / TruBalance).

    I left a comment on the Viberg blog noting that there are several members here interested in these boots (there was a discussion about them on the Rancourt thread).

    Brett Viberg responded there that, for now, these would have to be obtained through a direct order, and he suggested that I inquire via private message for further info.

    Mailed him back today about whether this leather is currently available and if it would be possible to do a group order here on SF. Haven't heard back yet, but will post any new info here.

    Sorry, should have mentioned the 2 sources were these boots were discovered: Horween and Viberg blogs.

    http://horween.wordpress.com/2012/09/20/boondockers/

    http://vibergboot.wordpress.com/2012/09/27/horween-boondocker-leather/


    It was historically called "Marine Field", but I do not know if Horween has another name in the works for a potential release? The leather is indeed (natural) CXL "rough-side-out", but where "the back side of the leather is treated to give it a nice, level knap" in order that "the boots could be left unlined while still having a finished, comfortable medium to contact the foot. This was particularly advantageous in North Africa, where the troops could up-end their boots to easily empty them of sand, thus greatly reducing blisters and increasing comfort."

    Not sure, but perhaps the leather on the tongue is iced mocha CXL?

    Sounds like it would be a very interesting make-up.
