    I'm hoping for sizes 13s or 14s, but I'm guessing that's going to be unlikely.

    Is there a rough estimate when the next sale will be. Planning on heading on a fishing trip and want to make sure I have Internet for the sale...

    I'd like to hear feedback on how successful the buyer's were able to guess their size.

    I think some people may have not known they were in UK sizes...

    Would have loved to get in on the sale, but I'm waiting for a chance to get a proper fitting. I've had my fill of shoes that don't quite fit, at any price.

    agreed I hope people chime in on their experiences and sales. I was hesitant about pulling the trigger as I'm still very confused on my sizing.

    I'll throw my sizing info in if it helps. The 1950s Service boot runs "big" for me at least with the turned up toe. I am an 8 in White's Classic Work Boots and got a 7.5 U.K. in my Vibergs. They fit but I could have prolly went down to a 7 U.K.

    They also run wider for me in the toe box and heel than the White's

    Great boot, I love em'

    Yeah which last are they though? Are they the sleek 2030 or something chunkier?

    I've been looking at Viberg for a while. Read a lot of advice on the sizing of the different lasts. When the pics went up I recognized the last & size I wanted. We'll see how it works out.

    I also have the 1950 Service Boots with turned up toe (the 310 last), and I find them to be 1/2 sizer larger overall than true-to-size US boots, but slightly narrow. For me, I am a 10D in most US workboots, but a 9.5E in Viberg.

    I will say that the 310 last Service Boot is by far the heaviest most well-built 5 or 6 inch boot I have seen. And the black HH leather that I have is just over the top in quality. But my experience is that it's not a boot that is super comfortable out of the box -- takes some breaking in. And the higher heel takes getting used to.
