    I remember reading somewhere on some this thread or some Viberg thread that it was some regular calf leather that they waxed. In any case, I prefer the CXL anyway. Slightly meaty doesnt bother me either since its more understated and versatile this way- shorts, pants, jeans, etc...

    Those derbies look really awesome and I'm not really a shoe guy. You guys must be terribly pleased (other than the eyelet issue).

    @rydenfan, those kudu boots are incredible, shown especially in that last pic. Congrats!

    Those derbies look super. I'd like to point out though that the left and right lace pieces don't match in a lot of the pairs from the gmto. Not sure what's up with that.

    I have a pair of AE seconds with the same issue and it bugs me. I can live with it for the price, however.

    Thanks! Super psyched for sure. Didn't have time to lace any of the new ones up this morning so went with some old faithfuls

    Looking at this pic,

    [​IMG]

    It makes me wonder if the eyelet alignment problem is related to the one main problem that I see not infrequently with Viberg, which is a sort of built in pronation, or inward lean, which gets the boots/shoes off kilter in the same way as above. I saw it in two of the four pairs I've owned (one very strongly), but also here you can see it in the boots/shoes in the front of this pic too:

    ^^ I think the contrasting eyelets, in both these and in rydenfan's boots above, really make it. I am a fan of contrasting eyelets I've discovered...

    Funny, that's what got me as well. Most of my footwear has blind eyelets but I've come to appreciate contrasting eyelets especially on casual footwear like these. IMO, it makes all the difference.

    Best news ever. I'll have vacation boots. I hope a get a pair that's put together well. Seems that quality and consistency would be paramount for boots that cost this much, but you can find a lot of errors large and small in the pictures on this board. I'm a little nervous after seeing some of those derby pics, for instance.

    Actually I'm always nervous about everything so I'm not sure that's saying much.

    Signs of booticipation: a condition found in subjects who spent more than six months shopping for their first pair of Vibergs

    1) Lowered work productivity due to obsessive compulsive rapid refreshing of web browsers containing shipping data.

    2) scrolling endlessly through google images tagged with "brown cxl"

    3) Staring at one's own feet in an attempt to visualize what new boots will look like when worn

    4) playing scratch-and-sniff with every leather product in the house including: belts, couches, wallets, shoes, etc.

    There's only one cure...

    You learn to hide the signs so as not to be mocked by family and friends...

    Which is why the boards are so important -- we can be ourselves!

    I guess for me, its the inconsistency between the left and the right shoe that bothers me (most evident in the picture I posted here: post #7986). Even more so, since this is always my view of the shoes when I am wearing them - haha.

    If you pull the laces up from the bottom to make the bottom set of eyelets tighter, how do they sit? It seems like the left shoe's eyelets are slightly lifted up and the right shoe is sitting flatter.

    Also, you can try relacing them without doing the bar lacing. It should be easier to have it sit flat that way.

    Quick question guys. My Mocha roughouts/2040 size 10.5 arrived. I measure an 11D brannock, slightly wide, slightly high instep/high volume.

    Length on these is perfect. Heel cup is perfect. Plenty of toebox room, which is what usually gets me on footwear. Note, barrie last fits great in forefoot but I swim in the heel. Where I'm getting a bit of pressure is in the areas noted below with arrows. I'm also a bit concerned about the gap between the lacing eyelets. I'm wearing medium thickness socks, the same I plan to use.

    With that said, it reminds me of the RW Beckman last which was initially tough to get the boots on but broke in well. Same for my OSB Trench boots. I had similar pressure in the same spot. My gut tells me that these will break in the same way and if length/width and heel cup are correct, the rest will settle in.

    Am I blinded by the gorgeous workmanship?
