I know im late but a few pages back someone said ridgeway is only available in bulk. I hate to be that guy but don't spread false information. Im a cobbler myself and anyone can order a pair here https://www.leatherandgrindery.com/index.php?route=product/search&search=ridgeway&description=true As can anybody

Any cobbler that also says they cant get ridgeway isn't trying hard enough. The above stockist is one of the worlds biggest, so either they haven't heard of it or they live under a rock. Anyone else ever need sole stock website help hit me up

Hopefully now that they are doing a refined collection they'll stop doing non gusset tongues on the service boots.

Also I hope they start to nail down the lasting over at viberg.. some of my more recent purchases on 2030 have been all over the place in terms of spacing and instep volume. Along with the increase of internal length... it seems more and more of a huge gamble to purchase a pair. Not to mention the rising prices of the make ups.

Yeah my early 2020 pair fits differently than my late 2020 pair which again fits differently than my early 2021 pair of 2030 last. I think that's more them doing a new build and not getting it right the first time, especially with the toe puffs.

Wow man, relax the tone a little. No one is intentionally sharing bad information. Viberg indicated that they are only available in bulk. The website I went to only sold in bulk. And my cobbler also indicated that the people he reached out to would only sell in higher quantities. Nothing wrong with being smarter than everyone else but would a little humility kill ya?

I don't think its toe puff specific. Things I have noticed are weird fitting looser heel counters, tighter insteps ( only on the right side boots). The increase in length was def done to increase fit for people that had previously found the almond toe narrow, but to also fix the small toe cap issue/ and fix proportions.

I have two pairs that are tighter on the right, one tighter on the left, and two that are pretty much the same.
