    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.

    That's crazy man! Get on the Leffot pre-order and you'll have a pair by Jan!

    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.

    We are going to have four new Viberg for Styleforum preorders up really soon.

    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.
