    Yes because it's always better to trust a website rather than the guy that's worked there.

    I had regret also of letting the chance passed for a pair of Black Oil with plain toe.

    ^^^Wearing these right now and couldn't be happier, even got each boot sized differently due to Fok's hard work, so they fit each foot perfectly.

    We have one extra pair in a size 9.5, in the store, if anyone is interested: http://www.styleforummarket.com/viberg-standard-black-service-boots-exclusively-for-styleforum/

    We also have a single pair of the cinnamon roughout in a size 10 as well.

    Incidentally, you probably don't want to miss out on this next round. We have enough for the Loden Service Boot on the 2030 last to go forward. The last day for preorders was extended to Dec 15, but I would not sit too long on this round: http://www.styleforummarket.com/viberg/

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Glad I could help. I was sweating bullets making sure that the sizing was right on this pair, though.

    The long standing Viberg website and Brett Viberg both say UK, so I'm going to take my chances with that.

    Either way, and I know Guy has promised that it's coming, a size guide needs to appear sharpish.

    Personally I went through all the opinions on the pages and pages of this blog and others to work out my size. I'm honestly a very patient individual! But if I read another comment along the lines of 'if I'm a 8.5US in Red Wing...' All this information and opinion has been covered so many times, you could get that answer by scanning through the most recent 10 pages of this thread, or the first ten, or any ten! Any way, rant over.

    Just to add to my earlier comments. Here's a pic of my brother's new (2 weeks of wear by me) 3sixteen/Viberg black CXL boots. The finish will rub away in time. I wonder how people are going to respond to it once it happens on a more visible part of the shoe.

    The more I read about chromexcel, the more I'm wondering if it is a good idea to use it for boots.

    It's not dyed through and the finish rubs off around the ankle after two weeks of routine wear?

    What are the advantages to chromexcel, besides a cool name and the much hipster-venerated "Horween" name?

    I've worn my Icy Mocha Vibergs 3-4x a week since getting them, and nothing has worn through.

    I've worn my color 8 chromexcel wolverines every day since I got them a month ago, and they show scuffs, gashes, and scratches like crazy. But there are no spots that have rubbed down to a non-colored layer yet either.

    I don't think that the mocha color would show that it's worn down past the pigment like the black ones seem to... with the contrast between uncolored leather and black being so drastic, right?

    I have black and brown CXL boots, including ones from Viberg, and none have rubbed off like that from regular wear. If done properly, it can be a great leather for boots.
