I like the way that shoe has shaped up...but I can't tell the color really well there.
It depends on the lighting and how worn in it is. At first it looks like charcoal, then it takes on a brown look to it. It's an interesting looking leather.
How do you find the color itself? It doesn't look too vibrant in your picture.
Well in that picture I'd just worn them all day. The get dull as the day goes on, but regain some vibrance with a quick brushing. Here they are in natural light after a vigorous brushing. I guess I's call it a chestnut brown, with medium vibrancy. They aren't dress boots; They're work boots. The sexiest work boots I have ever seen, ever.
For another perspective, the shoe on the left it brown cxl fresh out of the box.
Cheers. I've been hunting those for a couple of weeks now, and you're giving me confidence in the decision to do so. Thank you!
@lifeinabox: cool, those look great. Do you actually own both?
Gorgeous. I get jealous every time I see these, knowing I'll probably never have a pair. If I squint my eyes when I'm wearing my Guidi olive boots, I can almost pretend they're brandy shell...
Quote: The shiny picture was right after I treated the whole boot with VSC. They don't stay quite like that. Still they look good. I'd buy them again in a heart beat.
Is that colour 8 chromexel on the right?
Recommendations for rubber soled bottoms? Boots that'll actually hold up in snow and wet conditions? Ideally slimer lines.
Can anyone comment on how colour 8 chromexel looks in real life? From the members recent pictures here it looks very bright red. However, on Viberg's site and the site of their stockists that carry this it looks like a deeper and darker burgundy which I prefer. The bright reddish colour is a dealbreaker for me.
I've had the same concern. On most stockists' websites it'll look much darker than on real life photos from what I've seen. I really like the colour of the Colour 8 on Viber's site, but I have yet to see that colour from a 'real' photo.
What you're after is probably the Brown CXL.
