    Admittedly a little strange, but people pay a premium to get that worn look and you got it with little effort! Call me crazy, but I love that vintage look. I wouldn't do a thing to those (except admire them daily)!

    Looks to me like you are rubbing the heel against the leg of a chair. This can allen frequently if you sit at a desk for prolonged periods and i inadvertently rub against your chair

    I'm done after this till I blow through this pair. Part of the reason I took so long to choose is because I knew I'd be stuck with them.

    I went to their store to check them out. Here are the sample boots.

    The service boot is missing the pinking around the toe cap which I have not seen on any other Viberg boot.

    The scout boot is pretty much as will be released but the midsole will be painted black. I assume the same for the service boot considering their photoshopping.

    I was also somewhat unimpressed by the black waxed flesh. It was smoother and had more of a matte finish compared to my brown waxed flesh boots. And I'm not sure the natural roughout contrasting with the black wax and oils will look good after it has taken a beating.

    What's the cheapest way to ship to Viberg for resoling?

    Maybe that would explain the heel. But not the fading away over the ankle and instep.

    I shall dub these the Barroom Brawler[​IMG] boots, since the GTMO never took off.

    hey, thanks for sharing this info with us. Yeah, gotta say, not feeling the boots in your pics. Was wondering how a black waxed flesh may evolve and I think you summed up my fears as well.

    Why not hit them with some shoe polish and conditioner? That's the start of a bad-ass patina, but they look tired as they are.

    Honestly, I don't know how. Have the bottle of Venetian something-or-other sitting in my closet. But I don't own a special hair brush or polishing cloth or whatnot. I'm an au naturel kinda guy.

    You won't regret spending $50 on quality shoe cream and a horsehair brush to take care of your $800 boots.

    This. There is a difference between patina and neglect

    No doubt, but in this case it's hard to call it neglect when the boots look like this after a few weeks. I mean, I agree that they look very cool, but honestly that's what you want your boots to look like after 5 or 6 years, not 5 or 6 weeks. I have to think this is a badly dyed batch of CXL; especially in comparison with those other black boots above.

    No, not usually. I was just trying to figure out the lack of creasing in the toe.
