    Went down one full size (edit) From US to Viberg...US 9 to UK 8 /Viberg 8.....In CJ UK sizing I go down one in the boots. Talked with Morgan and he was helpful and also stated that the boots could be exchanged for another size if I was not happy with sizing....

    As for the lasting on the boot I can not really speak to that till I try them on, did do some measuring on my own and he felt that I would be good with what I ordered....
    Sorry about the .5 misprint.
    Would suggest giving them a call, very helpful and they shipped the same day I ordered..

    Good luck and have fun.

    I really think viberg needs a custom order page like the bakers do. Just imagine how much a pain it is to figure out all the details of a custom order the way it is now, not just for the customers but much more for them (poor Morgan). It would be nice to see what regular options are up there so one can get a much better idea before contacting them about an order.

    I went for the captoe service boot in Icy Mocha. Looks to be an awesome color.

    I have too many color 8 boots, and the black boot didn't have a captoe, so it was the Icy Mocha out of the 3.

    Got the "Boondocker" in the post yesterday (http://viberg.myshopify.com/collections/footwear/products/boondocker). Fit is right on, Morgan was a great help in this. I am in most boots, Indy, Julian Boots, Yuketen etc, a US 9. Morgan suggested Viberg size 8 and he is right.

    Now just have to "Bang" the new out of them, a little gardening perhaps.....

    Any thoughts on how to treat rough out leather, am inclined to just wear and brush. Am not a big fan of silicon sprays......

    Thanks and have fun Y'all

    Congrats! I'm waiting for Boondocker boots to be added to the site and going with size 8. I wear size 8.5D in Alden Indy and you are saying that you have sized down one full size from Alden Indy boots?

    I have purchased size 8 in 2040 last for Country Derby boots and the fit is spot on.

    I'm interested to hear about Natural Aniline Chromexcel leather care as well.

    These are the 110 last, and yes I went from a US 9 (boot) to a Viberg size 8. The is fit right on.......

    Will be treating as to avoid spotting, with what remains to be seen.....

    Calling them was of great help, they shipped the same day I ordered which was very nice. Hung up in San Fran for 3/4 days but none the less had them in a week. Nice......

    Good luck and enjoy

    Here is this, on "dubbing," though I have never done it myself, having never had roughout leather:

    This is actually Whiskey Cavalier, which we only had a sample side of. It's the non Scotch Grain version of the leather used on the two-tone service boot sold out on Viberg.com right now. It's great stuff and we might be bringing more of it in down the road.
    This is the Bernhard Boot. The pattern is still being tweaked, but it's nearly there. As far as the pattern and the seams it's probably the most complex boot we have ever made. It's essentially a chukka, but i've never seen anything quite like it available before. It's a fairly accurate reproduction of a vintage boot from the pre-depression era. It should be available on viberg.com and at stockists early Spring. If you look at the Journal on Viberg.com under the Liberty LV post there is a photo of a finished prototype of it.

    Awesome thanks Guy! I've never seen a chukka quite like it.

    For my Boondockers, I've given them a light covering with Viberg's own leather preservative (rub in a light amount, let it dry, brush), and now I'm just brushing them after every few wears, they really don't need much upkeep at all.

    Thanks, agree that just wear, brush and treat as needed is the way to go.....It is after all a work boot......

    Now as for "Dubbing", this very interesting and I like it....Have a pair of what I believed were oiled roughout boots (Ralph Lauren) but now think are "dubbed" instead. This may not be the case but at least I now know how to maintain them. Will try and see.

    Thanks again & enjoy.......
