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:

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.
Heard back from Viberg after sharing the pictures. They maintain that it's full grain suede. Not sure what to make of that - maybe the edges are skived.

Either way, props to Thomas for the quick responses.

Scuffed Color 8's to start off the week! Was noticing how incredible these look while peering out the window at the office. Think these are my favorite Vibergs!

Tempted by that country boot style. Anyone find it to fit different than service boot?

I think the main thing is that there is more vamp and so less adjustment at the instep. If the instep on the last is a good fit for you then it shouldn't be a problem.
Thanks!

Any idea when this one was posted? Are they sneak trickling things out again?

It was a return from the first round it seems. That exact makeup and size was on the original shell list and there's not supposed to be any shell from this coming round. Wednesday is just all the SBs that are left over.

I don’t think so. They offered me this boot when I bought a few pairs from them last time. I bet they just forgot to list it during he first sale.

That Stitchdown article that was posted over on Reddit stated that there would be shell:

"Upper leather from Horween, C.F. Stead, Maryam, Shinki, Guidi and more will include Chromexcel, kudu, shell cordovan, horsebutt, horsehide, calf, deer, nubuck and good ol’ fashioned cowhide."

The new manifest had no shell on it apparently. I asked about shell and if there were ammunition boots and was told there were neither. Still plenty of good stuff in there and everything that didn't sell in the last round is here which would include one or two pieces of shell in odd sizing.
