Nice markings on that hide. Hope the right one matches the left.
Nice! I like the cherry bark quality of your pair
The markings are similar because for both left and right boots the most noticeable markings are on the heel counter and sides. There toe area has the least amount of marking for both. They did a very nice job in matching the markings on the left and the right. I guess I should try to post a good photo showing the markings on both boots.Nice markings on that hide. Hope the right one matches the left.

Taken from my last MTO, these are the specs we need.
not trying to be a rain on the parade but at first, when i saw the new printed shell cordovan photo, i asked my chinese friend when is the mooncake festival? i was even expecting it to be called Viberg Derby Boot Mooncake Edition. i hate mooncakes, but i would grab that Viberg if i have a chance!Okay, I'll say it: I love 'em:

Here's the page for this one: Viberg Derby Boot Bourbon Drywear Print Shell Cordovan
Am I going to buy 'em? Probably not. Like I said in an earlier post, the kind of boots I'm focusing on for 2020 are those I feel more comfortable letting get beat-up a bit (or more than a bit). I don't think these are boots I'd want to beat up.
But I love 'em. And I hope to see that 2055 last used in more makeups asap, which Viberg describes as "A flat toe version of our 2045 last. A Munson style last with a wider forefoot and deeper toe box than the 2040. Similar to WW1 military issue boots."
Those look 1035-ish.Brahs, can anyone identify by looking what last these derbys are on?
