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.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Anyone with this issue should email Guy and also styleforummarket@gmail.com, and we'll get things fixed.

    The reason that this has happened in at least two cases is that the derby is their first model where they need to fold over the leather (as opposed to cutting it straight across, as is the case for the boots, for example). In the one case that has been brought on our attention, the issue probably arose from too much leather being folded over, with the result being holes being punched in an incorrect place. Although some inconsistencies do naturally occur on handlasted shoes made from really thick leather, obviously there should not be such a big, visible, problem, and we'll address them.

    In at least one case, Guy is talking to the factory floor, and determining whether the shoe should be sent back to be fixed, or whether a new shoe needs to be made for that pair. Viberg stands by its products, and anything with the Styleforum stamp on it, so do we.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    1. STFU, since it's obvious that you are being a dick just for the sake of being a dick. If you have any actual evidence that Viberg doesn't stand behind their product, and that Styleforum leaves our members who have done a GMTO with us in the wind because of a mistake on our part, then start talking again.
    2. Yes, times have changed. They've introduced a brand new model that requires techniques different from the techniques they've traditionally used to construct their work boots. They (and we) are working things out.

    It's exactly that, issues with a new model that are being ironed out. We'll get the problem fixed ASAP. And sorry for the inconvenience.

    LA Guy is the one guy I STFU for on here, so will do.

    I'm sure Viberg will come through and fix any problems that come up. They're a great company.

    Classy response too many times people get carried away on forums...have been guilty of that myself.

    Can not wait for my Viberg Boots to come...my first pair.

    I just took joking around too far.

    My pair of Viberg boots are hands down the best shoes I've ever owned, and I've owned Aldens, Red Wings, Allen Edmonds, and a few other mainstream high quality brands.

    I still remember opening the box for the first time. My scout boots on the 160 last were about a pound heavier than my iron rangers. My mom, who has no interest or grasp of mens fashion at all, looked at them and said "those are really expensive shoes."

    Can someone clarify for me what I'm looking at in terms of the erorr? I honestly don't see the problem.

    On the left boot, the eyelet on the top right is closer to the edge of the leather than the eyelet parallel to it.

    You can send them in to Viberg to be re-soled when needed. I'm not sure of the price though, perhaps someone can chime in?

    Is the toe partially structured or completely unstructured?

    From what I can tell, they're unstructured. I felt around inside and out and when pressing on the toe box, they bend in pretty easily then pop back into shape.
