Thanks! Those derbys are calling my name.
People who've got both Viberg 2030 lasted boots and Red Wing/RMW:
How did sizing/fit compare between the brands? I wanna get a pair of service boots in the 2030 last, but pairs to try on are hard to come by in Australia and I don't wanna risk the wrong size and paying for shipping to return/exchange
I am a 9G in RM Williams Craftsman last. I've only ever tried on the 8.5 in the 2030, and it was too tight on me. Too tight on the midfoot and the heel cup felt too narrow. I suspect 9 would have been a good enough fit for me, but I never got to try on any other sizes.
I'm assuming 9G was in UK/RMW sizing? If so (I'm gonna take some wild guesses here, based on sizing advice for shoe brands), your brannock sizing is 10 (US)?
Viberg recommends the full size down, so if you reckon an Viberg 9 would fit you well, that is very comforting! Thanks
9G is RMW sizing, as in what's printed on the sole of the shoe. My brannock is a 9.5E. I wouldn't go more than 0.5 down on the 2030 if your foot is any wider than a D.
