what did they say about the fact it was missing?
"Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I looked into this for you and found that since we had previously produced the Natural Shell Service Boot with and without the french binding, both makeups existed in our system. This run ended up being tagged as the version without french binding and we didn't catch it. This isn't something that would affect the price or quality of the boot, but it understandably isn't the exact product that was pictured during the pre-order. We typically don't allow returns on the pre-order items, but given the situation, we'd be willing to take the boots back and offer a full refund for your order."

...and then the Ivywoods had the binding from the natural shell. Not really sure what to make of that

How generous of them to offer in such a way...

With 2 consecutive shell mistakes, I'm really hoping the Bourbons turn out as spec'd

Did Viberg always use cork filling?
Someone did a teardown on Reddit a while ago, and there was a a foam insert in the forefoot section of the midsole. That was on a pre-2020 boot that still had a steel shank.

I imagine the sustainability focus that led to Viberg using wooden shanks instead of steel, and leather instead of celastic toe-puffs, is probably the same reasoning behind using cork filler instead of foam.
