Those do look great, and the Ridgeways work well on that boot!

Did they send them back in a new box? Do you mind sharing the process for Viberg’s resole service, and how long they took to complete the job? Thanks!
As others have stated it was this makeup - https://www.witheredfig.com/collections/viberg/products/viberg-for-withered-fig-bobcat-boot-brown-horsebutt-1035

The process with Viberg took about 6 months, and the resole was $135+ shipping. They came back to me refinished in a new box with goodies, a nice touch for the extended wait time. I also have a few IOU's attached to my account with Viberg, so I don't know if this would be a normal experience with the added wait time, or if they just feel bad for the pain they've caused over the years...

Does anyone know if there is a colour difference between English Tan Dublin and Burned Oak Dublin? They look very similar to my eyes.

I have the burned oak, but I haven't seen English tan in person. I believe the burned oak is a bit darker or more brownish in color. The burned oak makeup also has pinking on the toe caps.

Maiden voyage for my first 2020 lasted Vibergs. I got these Brown Calf Suede Derby Boots from Withered Fig during one of their recent sales. Went half size down from Brannock and boy am I glad I did! These fit narrower than my full-size down 2030 Service Boots. Granted, those are all shell and these are suede, but still a little tighter. Won't be able to wear my thick boot socks with these unless they stretch a little after break-in.

I am interested in the viberg service boots 310. how are they in terms of size? I have unfortunately no dealer near where I can try.
Redwing I have EU 46 to fit just so.
Blundstone Classic I have 47, Blundstone Dress 46.
Should fit the Viberg 310 with 46 E?

I have no experience with the 310 last. I am 44eu. I am size 10 in the 2030 and 1035 Viberg lasts. I’m size 10.5 in Alden TB, redwing 1907, Grant stone Leo last. Hope it helps.

I researched sizing on Viberg and the majority of Reddit users mentioned they were the same size in TB / Barrie as they were in 2030 / 1035.

I have a pair of Bobcat's coming in the mail in the next week that is the same size as my Alden TB last boots. I'll post how they compare.
Just an fyi the bobcats run about 1/4 size large compared to the other patterns.

I typically go full-size down from Brannock with Viberg. I went half-size down for Trubalance. My next Trubalance will be a full size down.

New (to me) boot day. Black oil tan roughout boondockers. I believe these were a DR makeup a couple years ago.

View attachment 1737702
Ahhh the good ole days. I wish they would sub the boondocker in and sub out some of their other badly placed 'essentials'. Y
This is a fantastic make up, I wish I could find more boots with the Black oil tan RO

1/4th is not a big deal imo.
Its enough to warrant pointing out. If your pair is snug in anyway, it won't work in that size on another pattern potentially.
