    I'll second the smooth non-cxl request, though I'd prefer dark brown. I'd love to see harness leather again.

    I know the Guidi tan horsehide was just released, but the 1035 last and a captoe was different to what I was looking for.

    Guy told me there was plenty of Guidi tan horsehide in stock at Viberg. To my knowledge, a Derby was being released early 2015.
    I would absolutely LOVE this makeup however:

    Service boot
    Plain toe
    2030
    +/- Dainite (or leather) sole
    8-10 Blind eyelets
    Partial structure (since the leather is thin and to prevent toebox collapse)

    Here's an example of what I believe to be evolution of this sample boot. I just love how it looks with some wear.

    I've seen all of those pictures before, and had no idea they were the same horsehide boot.

    Is horsehide more durable than cow/calf?

    Would you entertain a chukka?

    I'm actually amazed at how much those horsehide boots darkened. Does anyone know anything about the patina? How long it took, and essentially what was done?

    I agree with you 100%. Love the Japanese look in 145 Oxfords, Bobcats, Scouts, Short Shifts and chukaas. I have multiple pairs of all of these on the 110 last that I used to get MTO and from Inventory, SUPERDENIM and the Bureau Belfast 3-4 years ago. Would love to see some of the Japanese styles available for North America. Inventory, SUPERDENIM and The Bureau Belfast have some really nice oxford styles with unstructured toe from time to time, but the selection for the more casual customer isn't available. I'm trying to like Service Boots on the 2030 with Danite, but I just can't get there.

    Viberg is much more than the 2030 indeed, but I understand that for all the new comers to the brand is a very popular last. Viberg was a rugged brand before they re-style for a more dressier and sober footwear brand.
    I just hope that they keep that casual, rugged, manly style that characterizes them

    Well, as long as we are generating historical narratives here, it seems worthwhile to point out that the service boot on the 2030 last is from Viberg's archive and dates back to their very beginnings. Maybe the leather choices and make-ups they are doing now can be seen as more "dressy," but the shape itself is just as much of their heritage as chunky work boots.

    ^ I just said that is very popular last nowadays. It might be due to the sleek profile I guess.


    Japanese rugged style and look it might not be everyone's cup of tea, but i'm with you on this one. Like Brett said: "The thing about Japan is that they really know how to create the lifestyle of a brand". But then again, Japan, Europe and US are different markets.
