    Got a response. They told me to mail them back and they’d refund my original shipping charge

    Am I wrong in thinking they should pay for return shipping? It cost me 45 bucks to return a pair of boots to viberg in the past, and I didn’t do anything wrong here. I got a pair of boots that were mismatched colors...

    I've tried arguing that in the past, they don't budge. I've resorted to eating the loss and using paypal return (up to $30 back) through PayPal

    Dainite isn’t my favorite either, but I have a few pairs on Dainite. After break in, it gets better but it doesn’t change drastically. For me, the wider lasts help the pressure points. Stitch down feels stiffer vs GYW. If you are patient there are other sole choices out there such as double leather, commando, or half comp. Vibram soles. I’ve heard the raw cord sole is even stiffer than Dainite, so I’d stay away from that sole if I were you.

    I had to argue for the original shipping on a pair with defects

    Great looking pair of boots. Is that natural shell?

    Just got the honey tanned horsehide in. No issues with the colour match on both boots. Leather feels quite thin. Quite a few scuffs from the get go. This will age well. Sorry for the lousy pictures. Couldn't wait till the sun comes up for photos.

    Does Viberg make boots on any other last besides the 2030?

    I’ll post some non 2030 pics next week. Just got a shipping notice for my MTO on the 2045.

    Better photos in the sun. So much texture going on, I can’t capture all of the details on camera. Sizing wise, I went down half a size to 7.5 because I anticipated the leather to be slightly thinner than my navy latigo roughouts. They fit well due to the more malleable leather. Am I weird to say that these smell good? Is it because of all the honey? Hahaha

    Shipping from Viberg. Viberg or Freeman didn’t send me an email. I received a text alert from DHL since I had signed up for other deliveries in the past. I’m guessing they stopped using Canada Post or something.
