1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Has Viberg changed their shipping method to the US? Previously, they had shipped via Canada Post (and then to the USPS). I just got a shipping notification and they're using FedEx. The good news is I'll have the boots in two days. But is the bad news that I may be charged handling/brokerage fees by FedEx to the US?

    What is harness leather, and what is the chance we'll see another service boot made of it?

    I remember reading somewhere that leathers were traditionally divided into saddle leather, bridle leather, and harness leather, with harness being the most oil and wax treated, smooth and relatively water resistant. I know Red Wing calls their Iron Ranger leather harness leather, and I think it looks really nice and wears well. I would love to see a similar, presumably even higher quality, leather used by Viberg. Time to get beyond CXL...

    If you are looking for a real workboot made out of leather that is more indestructible, I suggest you check out their actual workboot line. http://workboot.com/
    There you will find leathers that are made to take a beating as opposed to the leathers and boots that are used for more fashionable reasons.
    There is a market for both.

    FWIW, one doesn't get a higher quality leather than shell cordovan. It is just harder to come by.

    I don't want a workboot, those are way to rugged to wear every day. I just want a boot that looks sexy and doesn't scratch with the lightest abrasion of a fingernail. I'd love some shell or horsehide, and have been trying to buy them since spring but apparently my fingers don't click quick enough.

    I just received a Viberg package via Fedex. No handling/brokerage fees.

    ^^ Sobbing quietly in the garden is a nice touch though!

    Started off with a pretty decent troll (quoted above) but he couldn't build any momentum and it fizzled fast. I give it a 3.25 out of 5.

    It typically comes in the mail weeks later, though.
