    Ah I see.

    Well at least one of my feet will fit snugly (my right foot is almost a full size larger than the left).

    Thanks for the response in a week old thread.

    hey guys, i'm thinking about taking the plunge on these:

    http://www.superdenim.co.uk/prodpage.asp?productid=2616

    the thing is, i'm a little bit hesitant about spending so much on a pair of suede shoes. i know vibergs are extremely well made, but i'm concerned about their longevity with regard to things like rain (i live in london so it's often wet). obviously, i'd like to keep them in shape for as long as possible -- can any of you recommend a good product for protecting the suede from water?

    sorry if this has been covered before. i did some googling and have a pretty good idea what to do, but i was wondering if any of you viberg owners could offer up some special advice for caring for the shoes. thanks for the help.

    Roughout is an extremely durable leather. Look at how thick it is in the pictures. I don't treat mine and it holds up just fine in the rain.

    Roughout is tough, but not for those who will be bugged by a scrape or mark here or there.

    for the money why not just get a custom job direct from viberg? I placed my order with Debby last month and she said it would take like ten weeks. I dunno, imo suede like material takes babysitting and it still stains, just too much hassle, but to each their own leather i guess.

    I saw the prototype Brett made for Nike. Seriously cool and odd. The project did not get a green light sadly...

    apparently several pairs exist, will be displays for very large stores with viberg accounts, and will be made to order to the tune of ~$2000
