A few pics of my tan derby boots from the 2016 sample sale, along with some side-by-side pics with my waxed flesh country derby boots.
























I normally don't go for two-tone shoes of any kind, but occasionally I see a pair that just gets it so right. Those are very excellent looking boots! I imagine you can dress them up and down (to a certain point). And stitch down to boot! Well done and congrats on the find!

Had to pick these up from Meadow after seeing some tantalizing shots on IG. I've been looking for the right pull on option from Viberg and this is finally it. Excuse the dumb iPhone selfie:

any other photos of the chelseas?

2030 last?

Yes they were, from 2011 i believe, i picked them up from ebay for $250.

I have the same Superdenim / Viberg oxfords in Black CXL and Vintage Tan roughout too, great shoes and with the 110 last and vibram sole they are a good casual option.

Hi all,
I'm trying to determine my size in Viberg 2030. I tried the same boot in sizes 10 and 11.
In size 10, the left foot feels tight around the ball of the foot. When I take a step, the toe knuckles feel some clicking from sliding against each other, similar to someone shaking your hand too hard. I'm guessing it's too narrow. The right foot feels snug but no pain; it feels like a good fit.
In size 11, the left foot doesn't feel the clicking anymore, but both feet feel a slight slip that's slightly annoying.
I could not find a 10.5 to try.
The boots are chromexcel, which I've heard does stretch. I've had boots in the past that stretched out way too much, so I'm trying to find the smallest size that will stretch out to a good fit (which is understandably really hard to get right). My question is: has anyone else started with a pair of boots that were too tight across the ball, but had it stretch out to a good fit?
Thanks!
