    Haha that is a gross exaggeration.

    As do I, they are in great shape and have a nice patina. Still have not been re-soled either.

    1st off that has nothing at all to do with my post. I simply inquired about a possible method to be able to learn my proper sizing on their lasts. Perhaps you don't understand what I was saying??? Not really sure.

    Second, one could easily make the argument that the point of the sample sale was to move inventory quickly at one shot and also to showcase what the brand is capable of and drive custom orders. I would be shocked if custom orders have not increased over the last few weeks.

    This is a weird thread. I make a simple request about a way to help customers learn their size and drive more sales for the company and people get upset about it

    Dont get so defensive. i agree with you that custom orders must have jumped and for what? Simply moving dead stock out of their warehouse. Like I said win win. But what your suggesting just doesn't seem all that likely. They would be stuck w even more the deadstock. You should contact Guy/Morgan; they're so receptive and crazy helpful it's really unbelievable.

    Rancourt is a good shoe but I had a Rancourt chukka and a Viberg chukka - and there is just no comparison in the workmanship and quality. Of course the Vibergs are about twice as much.

    knowing the right size of a shoe/boot in the different lasts is actually pretty easy...do enough of research (there should be plenty of advice in this threadthe intact the brand (in this case viberg) and ask for sizing advice and if you've made a choice, pay to play!
    if that is too much to ask for, then this right here isn't really for ya...just my 0.02$!

    I bought my first viberg in the wrong size, sold it and bought a different one (0.5 bigger in size, different last as 1st pair) and the fit is just perfect! then after that I've bought another pair (same size as previous, different last) and again the fit was perfect! so it actually just took me one false move and (after that) a lot of research, to finally know my exact size in viberg and their different lasts!

    it's actually the same with dry denim that you just can't try in the store around the corner...do some research, some measuring, compare I other things you wear and voila, there you go!

    I know it's pretty risky and some folks just don't want to spend that much money for the "wrong boot", but it is what it is...deal with it or get lost! ;)

    Yes I had purchased a boot in the 2030 last in my normal UK9.5 size - it was way too tight in the instep and width. I then got a UK9.5 in the 110 last - perfect!

    I've been disappointed in the lack of photos posted of the sample sale shoes people have received. So, I thought I would post mine. I have had my eye out for a saddle shoe for a long time and these really fit the bill. Danite sole, waxed flesh and grey suede really are an awesome combo. Here is a fairly poor iPhone shot, but the best I have for now.
