    I've been discussing a "Boondocker" boot in the "Marine Field Shoe" reverse CXL leather with Viberg. They've indicated that we could receive around a 10% discount for a group order of 10 or more pairs. Each boot would need to be built to the exact same specs. If it's not possible to get ten guys together, the leather is still available for individual custom orders (price around $665).

    Would you put a commando sole on it or leave as is?

    We could do a commando sole. We could do a totally different boot. The catch is, whatever we do: any changes would have to be agreed upon by 10 guys.

    Personally, I would love to see a commando sole on this boot (i.e. Viberg 1950's service boot).

    Start a thread dedicated to pulling together a group purchase. Link it here, rancourt, and wherever else would be relevant. Depending on when you need the money and final configuration, I'd be in :slayer:

    i've been trading emails with them also, just haven't had the time to measure my feet for my pair.. will wait a bit to see if a possible group buy comes to fruition. I'm in for a pair that looks like the pic posted, possibly still in if commando sole is incorporated instead.

    I might be interested in that boondocker special order Kashiwa, depending on timing/funds.
    Need to take a ferry up to Victoria some time and check out the shop.

    Well we've had at least 7 guys express interest in the boot, so I think I'll start up a separate thread. Feel free to broadcast it around.

    You guys are killing me. I may have to sell some Aldens and get in on this. How does sizing run on Viberg?

    I wear a 7.5 in the Alden Plaza last and a 7 with the Viberg service boots (with thick socks and no insole). I've also tried a 6.5 and they were tight.

    i see most shops advising to size down a whole size from your actual shoe size (same as your UK size).
    for example i'm a size 8.5US, i wear size 8 in Alden barrie but will probably need size 7.5 in Viberg

    hi all. new to the forum. I would really love a pair of Viberg hiker 66. i am size 12US in most shoes, nikes etc. i believe i actually wear an 11.5 in alden. it seems the recomendation is that they fit true to size, so i would need the 11UK. Is this indeed true or should i size a half size down to the 10.5UK? thanks for all the help, Dave

    Dave, I would check in with the folks at Viberg to be sure, but it's my guess that 10.5 would likely suit you better...depending on the last, of course.
