    I think it's cool. Adds to the character of the boot. Nice pickup.

    If you grabbed em at the sample sale, then you got to choose.
    My bad for assuming this was something you received from a pre-order.
    Still looks like it hurt the horse. There I go assuming again. I doubt Horween sent s hide to Viberg this way.
    Could the scar have happened in boot construction?

    Wearing the kangaroo zip up service boots from Haven. Man that dye transfers all over your hands. Leather is really soft and a bit stretchy. In fact my big toe pushes up a bit & you can see it. It's not uncomfortable, and that may bother some, but I don't mind. Even with the zipper though, they are a little difficult to put on without a pull tab. Still, I like the clean lines and murdered out colorway. Pant hems fall cleanly.

    I saw a sample of the zippered boots at the sample sale. Wonder if Viberg will continue with that design. I thought the zipper was really awkward.

    Yeah, it's unlike any I've seen. I see what they were trying to do, and it's nice that it follows the lines of the tongue, but it takes some getting used to.

    I had quit the Viberg addiction for 3+ years but those Crust Horsehide boots just wouldn't let me rest. The leather looked too unique to pass up. Looking forward to seeing these in person !
