    I think Scout is the better choice for that leather. I also have a few service boots but no Scout so I like the variety.

    It's bullhide. Bullhide has a more pronounced, larger, grain, than bison, and the grain is more "rounded". I have the bison sample right in front of me to compaire right now.

    I like the look of the bull hide but that patchwork of colors is not for me

    Do it. You really don't want to miss out on this one.

    I really feel this leather will work better as a scout boot.

    It could probably use a little leather conditioner. It looks a little dried out in its current state.

    So my brother goes to Viberg in person today, interested in getting the matte calf service boots.

    Walks in, no one at the counter, after a fews mins of checking stuff out (majority work/industrial boots on display, none of the "fashion" footwear online), father and son come out and don't say hi as they leave. Few mins later an older lady comes out to help. My brother says he's interested in getting service boots and she says "those are online only".

    WTF!?!? After not offering any additional help i.e. would you like to try X to know your sizing, my brother just left.

    It seems pretty weird that they have the boots there but won't sell them in person, and the level of customer service was pretty surprising considering local customers are interested in supporting a local business. It seems like they're doing pretty good and could care less.

    Sounds like a crappy experience, but I do believe they've always asked that you set up an appointment if you are going to do an in-person visit. The walk-ins seem to be exclusively for their work boots.

    I have narrowed my choice of service boots into two. If it was your choice what will you buy among these two and why?
    I wish I could buy the two of them....

    1. Mohawk General Store Dust black service boot.

    2. Snuff kudu by Cultizm.

    They're pretty different boots aesthetically. I think the dust black is a little more unique looking, the texture and color are interesting. The kudu looks really great too. But these boots are very different.
