Did you take same size for 2050 sidezips as your 2030?
I actually have two pairs on the way - one in my 2030 size (half down from brannock) and one in my brannock size, courtesy of @NYDRH. Thanks again my man. I'll report back my findings as far as fit goes

If anyone is interested I did a small writeup on my sample sale trip.


I'm pretty excited about my MTO since the 2050 last is too narrow for me. Not to mention picking up the natural shell.

Side zip on the 1035 sounds perfect. I’ve been waiting a couple of years for VB to release a wider version on their side zip pattern. Was hoping for the 2005 last but 1035 would work great as well. @NYDRH was nice enough to proxy a waxed deer side zip for me in a half size up from my normal size. Still would prefer a wider profile like your MTO. Hopefully your MTO inspires them to make it a general release.

Curious to see what they will look like, i could definitely use a bit more width in the 2050

The leather they used for the engineer boot is awesome, and this is similar. They had some options at the MTO

Spec sheet just came in for those still waiting on theirs, hopefully you guys receive yours soon. Third boot is cut off but identical to the second just with a stitched cap toe.

Are there different tannages for the Horween horsebutts that Viberg uses? I see that some are lined and some are not. From what I gathered it looks like what is called “work shoe” Horsebutt is used unlined.
