Am I the only one who find it odd that the second model in the black HB Halkett photos is wearing... Black oxfords? Otherwise these look nice. Are all Halketts going to be GYW?

Yeah, they even changed the stitchdown shell halkett they posted by accident to GYW pretty quickly. I wish we were going to get a stitchdown one and I hope we do one in the future.

Interesting info, I appreciate the offer. Do you have any pics of how they turned out? Is the Walker heel a bit thicker than the Viberg specific LH heel?
They turned out reasonably well for a casual rebuild of a CXL beat-up favorite chukka, though I don't think chukkas are big on SF. It was an experiment, since I wanted LH soles, with a similar profile to the stacked leather, mini-ripple (but softer and without the ripple). For whatever reason, it required the nails to adhere well. And obviously there's a heel "missing" but it doesn't feel off to me with the stacked leather compensating. The LH site gives mm sizes of the Walker heel I think, but visually it doesn't look much different than the LH soles Viberg uses. I just don't know if they use heels like that on slippers; I have never paid the slippers much attention. They don't use the Walker sole in general as far as I know. I would order differently if I could, since the tread on the Walker is really just superficial, and the Cricket is a single sole (limiting its ability to be completely stitched on). Didn't realize this before ordering. PM me if you're interested. The size of the Walker sole is 10-12; Cricket sole is size 11

Congrats on getting your comipels! That was a wild ride. Here’s hoping they look smashing when they arrive.

I did not get my comipels, I wanted the brown ones which they're still missing my size in. I honestly would have bought the black ones except I already have 5 black boots, 3 of which happen to be Vibergs.

Ooooohhh my bad. I thought you were going for black. The saga continues.
I'm getting used to it with Viberg. It's my own damn fault for stubbornly trying to collect HB from all the tanneries. These and the regency calf slippers I was hoping to cop are both AWOL. Last year they canned the 310 Cuoio HBs too. Maybe Brett is cancelling everything I want because of the mean things I said about the bernhard?

Yes, live now.
13E ordered! Early morning (0245am) purchase!! Looking forward to receiving them soon.
13EE shows as out of stock.
They seem to only stock the narrow and wides from 7.5 to 10.5; looks like you need to do a proper preorder to get wide or narrow in any other size
