Thanks! Hilarious comment, btw...
No worries gents.
Hah those guys must be getting annoyed with all my emails and phone calls.
3/4 of grey reverse kudu service boots and natural cxl derbies are here. One box hot delayed. Oh man, the kudu is so soft and thick and supple, and the color on the natural cxl is just tremendous. I'll post pictures later and once the last box gets in and everything is accounted for, I'll send them out.
Btw, anyone who wonders why Vibergs cost more than other brands just needs to see these things in person. I sorta want to keep a pair of the kudu for myself. I bought myself a pair of the natural cxl, and had them customized, but oh man, dat kudu.
Really different feels. The kudu is soft and warm, the natural cxl is more nuanced, and a little more in that rogue gentleman vein.
Another sizing question:
I read that most people take the same size in Alden Barrie last as Viberg 2030 last.
I wear 11.5 in Alden Barrie and it fits well.
I'm talking to a retailer who warned me that Viberg uses UK sizing to 11.5 is actually more like a 12.5 US.
So my question is this: when one wears the same size in Alden Barrie and Viberg, is that including the UK sizing?
So 11.5US Alden Barrie == 11.5UK Viberg 2030?
Great! Well, people love to talk, saying this and that and they dont have any first hand experience with Vibergs- ridiculous and a waste of time to read.
Can't wait to get my hands on the kudu!!
Awesome!!! Can't wait to see them. So glad to be in on both
I knew we had a winner on our hands with this kudu boot, can't wait to see it in person
What customization did you do to your derby?
The answer from Viberg is Barrie sizes are = 2030.
My personal experience is barrie E width is 2030.
It isn't easy to quantify the instep.
BCC put their restocks of Olive Guidi & Black Calf up.
Had a size 10 olive guidi in my cart, and it was gone by the time i checked out. GOD DAMN!
Good luck to the rest of you.
I'm on it!
EDIT: Scored two pairs in size 8. Sorry gents.
Not my size, but you lucky bastard!
Luck? It was hard work, I tell you. Sitting here all day, refreshing the site, working in bathroom breaks in fear of missing out, speeding through the checkout process to make sure my cart wasn't intercepted by someone faster...
Hahaha you were well devoted.
Looks like i just wasn't fast enough.
