Sample Derby up on Instagram
I'm really liking the leather on that; I think it's Guidi calf. I'd love to see that end up on a service boot on the same last.
Hate the toe box. It looks like a low top service boot. I want a derby to be slim, not chunky.
the derby looks chunky to you? Toe box looks unstructured
anybody know what last this is?
does anyone know what last the derby in the picture is on? 2045? Really hoping this is what the waxed MTO boondocker is going to look like toe wise
It's not an issue of structured or unstructured. Look back through this thread at the various derby pictures. They did a sample derby that was posted on their Tumblr page with a much slimmer profile. Others are on a last with a toe box that resembles their service boot.
I believe it's the new 1035 last.
Those derbies are real nice.
I believe this is the last they said would be basically a wider version of the 2030...?
There's a pic of an oxford with a chunkier toe, presumably 2045, on the Viberg instagram account. Looks great to me.
Did anyone buy the Guidi painted horsed hide's in black?
this is a common feature on taller workboots and the like. it actually makes lacing faster. you leave the laces in the d-hooks or eyelets at the top and just twist the laces over the speedhooks. it's what I do with my whites, and i wish my two pairs of danner hikers had it.
I am getting used to it
I feel like there are a few of us who would love to see some really worn in Color 8 CXL...I can't find one to save my life.
So I was in Victoria for a week and even though I currently have a pair of White's on order, a 3rd visit to Viberg proved to be fatal.
These Service boots are built on a 2030 last and are a size UK 9.5 - one full size (at least) smaller than my North American size.
The top down pic is a pretty accurate depiction of the toe shape.
In black CXL with Dainite soles, these aren't anything out of the norm for denizens of this forum, but to me they are things of rare beauty.
