Personally, I think they look good but wear down too fast.
Granted, I only have the navy 3sixteen pair but they’re easily the most comfortable of any outsole I have on my boots (dainite, vibram 2060, christy).

I just wish they’d do something like their workboot line where they have a thick durable rubber surface but foam cushioning:

DR’s makeup on the 310 has the foam between the Gloxi and the upper, if that’s what you’re referring to. Really not a fan of the 310 though.

Is your current 2030 Size 1/2 down from your brannock size or 1 size down?
Half down. I'm just wondering because the waxed nutmeg kudu Brooklyn Clothing pair is on sale and there's a size one size down from my brannock available 😅 curious how other people size is all. I know Richard with Withered Fig said he wished he sized a half size down for his mushroom oxfords to wear em with thinner socks but haven't seen the opinion much else where when concerning boots.

I know the temptation. Rivet and Hide doesn't stock 11.5 and I've been tempted to just get an 11. But ultimately I wouldn't reach for it bc 11.5 is much more comfortable.

Who did the resole? I've got two pairs of Vibergs I need resoled. And I'm in Texas if the Instagram post is implying they can be done there.... Sweet.
Pekin Shoe Repair in Illinois. But they aren't doing mail-in repairwork any more.

Have you checked with Viberg? They will resole.

I don’t. Unless you just have a ton of length left over in the 2030, id stick with the same size. Or maybe if you have very narrow feet.
What would a "ton" of length constitute? An inch and a half or two inches plus? I'm trying to nail down my 1035 size too and I size down 0.5 from Brannock for 2030. Definitely have some left over length but doesn't seem uncomfortable and the arch support seems to line up pretty well
