Hmm… now that I’ve talked to a cobbler who says can stretch the instep on the these, do you guys think a white vibram christy wedge would look better on these?

Edit: I've attached a pic of a mini ripple as well

I MTO-ed the leather with viberg, they said it was a full grain suede.
I've the 'clove' colourway, so perhaps there is some variation between that and the chocolate, I couldn't say.
I reached out to Viberg about the black specifically, and they said it was FG. I have the Anise and it's clearly FG:

But the black looks split (pic from underside of back stay; I couldn't separate the tongue liner at all probably because it's a flesh on flesh glue bond). No grain:

They definitely do split as well and there's a chance that the black alone is split.

Sure, I assume they would. Either way, it's disappointing that Viberg would use split and FG on two boots that are otherwise exactly the same, and then not have it together to be able to inform customers who inquire.

Just for curiosity sake, how does the discontinued (for heritage) 160 last fit?
