    I agree. I've had some issues with my Vibergs as well (ie. uneven welt stitching). Not asking for perfection but at their prices I expected better. I found fit and finish to be as good if not better with Yuketen and OSB at 2/3 the price.

    You should be fine in 9.5. For 2030 take a 10. IMHO

    I agree that doesn't look right for expensive boots.

    Any update VLSI if you can see my post?

    I've unblocked you. I also looked through your old posts, and while your humor is often lacking, I don't really understand the huge outcry. Anyhow, no updates until I get home and have a chance to see them in person, so Thursday most likely.

    Dayam, he was right, does looks good...i was skeptical and went with the gunmetal...we'll see.

    As for the instep, maybe that's just what it looks like? I know the majority of people have the service boots...i rarely see the scout boots, but I found another picture of one showing the instep.

    I doubt gun metal will look bad either, just different. Antique brass probably goes with the beige color of my sole better as well.

    To some extent, it does seem to be the nature of the boot, but it appears much smoother on the left boot without the prominent creating seen on the right boot.

    Anyways, let's talk about other viberg products for now :) I don't want to derail the thread and cause any undue ill feelings until I've had a chance to see the boots and contact viberg.

    Hi, I'm so glad I found this forum, it's so good! I have a pair of the black service boots with a dainite sole (like the ones in the store) but mine have a toe cap and I have to say they are the best boots I have ever bought.
    Although I do have a pair of chukka/desert horsehide boots with a dainite sole that I believe were a sample pair but have never fitted properly, they slip at the back when I walk and haven't worked out how to fix it yet.
    Has anybody else had any problems?

    My MTO service boots arrived yesterday, here are some pictures.

    These are a size 3 1/2 on the 9220 last, which Morgan said is basically the D-width version of the 110. Total turnaround time was just about 8 weeks--very pleased with the service. Viberg did a great job on these boots, I'm very happy with them.

    To keep them from slipping you could try either cheap adhesive pads for the back of shoes or insoles.

    So I ended up deciding to keep the 3sixteen Stealth boots. At the end of the day, they are what I consider the perfect boot. Dressy if need be, great sheen, good, not-too-high toe box, nice little details on the brogue toe and the cap toe length is "just right" in proportion to the rest of the boot. And sturdy as hell. Their proneness to show wear has grown on me as well, revealing the "down and dirty" side these puppies are capable of taking.

    Now a new dilemma, since these are a limited run type thing I was wondering about picking up a second pair and tucking them away in my closet. They still have a few pairs in my size left on their site. But I can't predict how long these current ones I'm wearing will hold up with proper maintenance - that I'd hate to tie money up like that. But with Viberg stopping the MTOs and not really known for replenishing previous designs, I'd hate to miss them one day and have to settle for a lesser variation (no brogue cap toe, raw leather edges).

    Has anyone loved a pair of Vibergs so much they've bought a spare pair just to store away for the future?

    And a second question, lately I've been wearing a lot of grey and black jeans with the boots along with a brown chromexcel belt. My thinking is that the belt picks up the brown colors from the outsoles of the boots. Add in a brown strapped watch to help the effect. This is passable, right?

    Save your money for something else, you likely won't consider it your perfect boot decades or even years down the line.

    Agreed, this is the perfect boot! Now as for getting a spare pair...I've done this before with shirts, jeans, etc and I rarely wear the second item. By the time the first gets worn out, I've moved on to a new favorite.

    I thought that Viberg stopped with the MTO or these are one of the last ones?
