My Marrkt order just arrived. As described, there was no Viberg box and no extra set of laces included - the boots were just loose in the shipping box without any padding/foam. Fortunately, the boots look perfect and have no immediately apparent defects. My five year old asked me why I keep getting new boots in the mail, which reminded me to stop buying more boots after this pair.
The Maryam light grey horsebutt is even lighter in shade than my DR fango vitello side zips. I imagine these should darken quickly due to the sanded/matte finish. I’ll post more photos later this fall once they have some more wear.
