Big toe ends after the crease. Thanks
Holding up well in the ice
Those look partially structured at least...I wouldn't worry about it. Enjoy the boots.
Wearing them as well (for the first time, thanks user @jabberwock1977 for the sale!). LOVE EM.
Would be better down sizing half a size for my next pair?
I would defer to Guy Ferguson at Viberg: [email protected]
He helped me tremendously with all my sizing issues.
Your best bet is to get your size on the Brannock device, as well as your Alden Trubalance size.
Nut brown vibergs a few months in. Just gave em their first treatment, hence the shine -- before that they were quite waxy/matte finish. Pleased with the progress.
Meso, what last?
They look great!
any over/under for when Viberg will release another shell boot?
I have a question...
Im trying to purchase a pair of Viberg online. They only sizes they have are whole sizes. Should I go up a size or down a size? Site says down but I just want to verify with the people that have experience. I know you guys told me TTS which I am a 10.5 and 10 in other boots.
Short answer: size up. You can always wear heavy socks or slightly looser boots. You can't wear boots that are too small at all.
Long answer: it depends. If you give reference point on what you wear in other common lasts, as well as which viberg last you're looking at, that would be very helpful. The only viberg I own is 2030, and I recommend sizing down a half from TTS, but for some people it's a whole size. It just depends on what you usually do. Taking the same size as your Alden Barrie or TruB is pretty safe though.
How wide are your feet? I am no sizing expert but I just bought and received a pair of boots from Viberg. I'm an 11.5 brannock with narrow feet. The boot I bought was on a 1035 last, which is basically a 2030 last with a more rounded toe. Guy recommended I go down one full size to a 10.5 and I did and the boots fit great. He also advised me to stay with the same size on all lasts and to accept the fact that some lasts might not work for me, perhaps due to my narrow feet... There are many folks here who have been successful sizing up or sizing down only 1/2 size depending on the last. Might depend on the foot width......Since you are buying a Viberg boot, I would think that Guy at Viberg would be happy to try and help you out...Best of luck!
I'm pretty sure you'll be fine in a 10, but why not email Viberg to make sure? I think the consensus, with rare exceptions, is to size down .5 from Brannock. Possibly 1 full size if you have short toes and narrow feet.
I've found that Viberg fit like most work boots (Chippewa, RW etc). They're a little big to account for heavy socks, arch supports, "high-volume workingman's feet that swell by the end of a hard day" etc.
