    ^yup, MTO or you can chase them at the store that ordered the collab. there's a special thread on SuFu regarding a Viberg group buy [organized by Edmond, a.k.a. Demonito]. there are about 15 peeps on the list. just add yourself on the list.

    you can pick the model, leather/leather combo & color/s, & trims [soles, heels, buckles, etc.]__ i.e., my specs for a pair of 5" Viberg Service Boots: capped "Work" toes w/single Celastic, bown Chromexcel vamp & uppers x taupe Bullhide [heel] counters, single leather mid-soles [natural color trims], Vibram composite half-soles, "cuban" Cat's Paw heels, all nickel eyelets, cut-top.


    I recently purchased a pair of Vibergs and am trying to envision your specs on my boots. Please post pics when you have a chance. Your boots sound amazing

    unfortunately, until the group buy segues into production, it'd all be a figment of the imagination [​IMG] .

    Thanks, I believe I ran across that thread actually! I'll give it another look [​IMG]

    Any chance there's a catalog site or PDF kicking around that outlines the trim options available?

    To everyone complaining about the price... what are you, in high school? Quality wise, they're worth every penny. Sure there's some diminishing returns between a $300 boot and a $600 boot, but that's the way it is with everything. Those 4Horsemen boots are amazing, I've seen them in person. They're too narrow for me, but I had some custom boots made by Viberg for me instead. Essentially they're bobcats on their 110 last (same as on one of their loggers and their oxfords), with a dark reddish leather and a few little changes. I just posted them in another thread but I'll take any excuse to show them off. This is after a couple months of wear; they still need more polishing. [​IMG]
    Thanks to YuppieSkuppie for posting the specs on these wonderful looking boots in another thread. I have looked at Viberg's Bobcat model in their showroom and like on their website, the toe is very bulbous and steel toe / work boot looking. I think I will visit their workshop on Saturday for a fitting and see if I can spec in a build for a pair of these! [​IMG]

    Went to the Viberg shop today and ordered a pair of their #36 Bobcat size 9-1/2 4E in Merlot Chromexcel with brass eyelets and 2 speed hooks. Vibram 1276 Siera lug outsoles and natural midsoles. $100 down and eight weeks to go!

    Pics to follow.

    You can purchase all of those boots, they're available at many retailers in Asia.

    These boots were made for style Great article in local paper about Viberg. Also, a shot of my icy mocha chromexcel service boots.

    I just picked up those same boots (I think) off the forum a couple of weeks ago. Love them.

    speaking of "Merlot Chromexcel" - here are mine that I finally received a few weeks ago... [​IMG] [​IMG] will spend some time breaking them in before I finally polish them and have them show their true color.
