Understanding that unit-to-unit variation is a thing (especially given the time that's passed since the first tun), it's true they do look quite different in the product photos versus last time. Here's a photo used for the original run:

And today's:

Yup, I expect variation from batch to batch. Still, I would’ve liked to see my grey boots age into a shade of brown.

damn the spi density is discernible from the previous batch - today’s batch from the photos you posted

It’s a real chameleon of a leather. My pair can be light grey, dark grey/purplish, dark brown with grey, etc under different light.
Good point, @ryebreadiest. Here's my 1071 Rovescio Sego in different lighting situations:


I know it's a different leather altogether (reverse horsebutt versus calf), but it does show how 1071 is pretty crazy with its chameleoning in different lighting.

Thank you for sharing these pics. I've been thinking about grabbing those 1071 Rovescio Sego Roughout Boots for quite a while and I think I may be ready to pull the trigger.

But first, I have also been considering the S&S Black Unicorn Roughout 310s. Does anyone have any awesome pics of them in the wild that might bring me back to my equilibrium of indecisiveness?

(I know they're wildly different boots, but both call to me and I really shouldn't just get both... or should I?)

Waste of a beautiful leather, there must be zero QC going on at Viberg. That’s two pairs of the same makeup ruined the exact same same way just in this thread.

Jeez, bad omen for the work shoe butt DRDs? Those have cap toes. I hope they sort this out.
Those are too far out and should be safe (and if there's a brogueing issue and Viberg has to remake several runs of boots we may not see them till 2022 tbh.) I would be wary of the port 1071 restocks and the Shelby Sharps. Especially with how much brogueing is on the Shelby this could be a real disaster. Edit: its a ton of pinking so only the cap toe is at risk woops. But still be careful of all brogued boots made around now I would say.

Jason from DR would probably send them back if the brogueing is a disaster.

Yeah they probably would. I really think Viberg just needs to do some of the straight cap toes again (not the folded one) for some casual styles and be done with it.
