These would have been my first Viberg, but I went a ‘safer’ route with the DR natural RO instead. Thankfully these were still available in my size when I came back around. I too get so many ‘looks’ and compliments. Also some shocked faces when/ if price is ever raised.I recently picked these up, and literally every single time I've worn them, I've been complimented on them. I wore them one day at a busy show last week, and a half-dozen people asked me about them. One young lady asked me about them as a gift idea for her brother-in-law, so I told her to check out 3sixteen's website, she did that on her phone, and she seemed a bit shocked (probably at the price). (I'm guessing she scratched that gift idea off her list.)
No doubt It is a fine looking hide, and has a color depth and richness that sets it far apart from typical mass market suedes. Combine that with Viberg's Scout pattern (which isn't used enough, in my opinion) and the tan Gloxi-Cut sole, and you apparently end up with an eye-catcher.
Blue suede shoes... Carl Perkins and Elvis were onto something.
My only complaint so to say, is that the tongue isn’t longer; my other boots have tongues that are maybe an inch above the boot itself while these have a set in tongue. I don’t know if that’s all scouts or not.
