    It's a little bottom heavy. Or a lot. I'd like it much better as a 6 inch boot.

    Fair enough... I will basically agree with you.

    Can anyone who has both Vibergs and either Red Wing Iron Ranger or GT (Beckman) let me know what size they wear in each?
    I'm an 11.5 in the RW Iron Ranger and GT boots (not chukka or shoes in which I'm a 12). Trying to figure out the size for the Viberg Oxford.

    thanks!

    You need a 10.5 in Viberg. I am a 10 in RW and have a perfect 9 in Viberg.

    Have you seen them in person? I'm not a fan of how the toebox looks in person, it's wider/flatter than it seems in pictures

    I have the Viberg service boots and Red Wing GTs and I wear the same size in both. Oxfords might be different though.

    edit: 4 Horsemen recommend going down 1 from your regular shoe size for the oxfords. Their sizing advice worked for me.

    That's strange. I was recommended either 11 or 11.5 in Viberg. Hmmm!

    Ah. Ok, so that's what I've heard before. I think I'll just stick with 11.5, which are in the works for me at Viberg. If they really don't fit, I'm sure they'll make another pair. The oxfords also come in two different lasts. I got the more rounded one (110).

    Hi,

    I think the boots you posted are very cool. I love the color combo and just the look is perfect for me. I recently made an order to Viberg and I saw these and I am ready to add a pair. If it is not too intrusive, can you tell me the specs of your boots? I want a pair just like them.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Can I ask a hypothetical question?...

    What would be your ultimate Viberg boot that you could dream up?

    Or at least... What new Viberg boot would make boot fans cream in their selvedge denim jeans?

    Personally, I'd love to see an all black cordovan service boot with steel toe!

    What's your flavor?...

    Viberg uses UK sizes, which are generally one less than US sizes. That might be the reason for the difference.

    Suede eh? I think that same idea would also be cool with caramel color full grain leather...

    This came to me yesterday.
    For either a saddle oxford or service boot:
    Black calfskin for the vamp and counter with black buffalo hide for the quarters on a Dainite sole.

    I understand that the Oxford has a deconstructed (narrow) or regular toe. Anyone has problem with the decontructed toe being too tight at the front? Feedback would be most helpful. Thanks.

    The soft toe is very low and I find it tends to rub against the top of my foot if I'm wearing very thick socks, which gets uncomfortable if I've been walking a lot.

    On another note, the buffalo hide takes forever to break in. I've worn my service boots for about a year now (once or twice a week, on average), enough to need to replace the rubber heel, and the quarters are still really stiff, to the point that I'm still getting blisters.

    You think Viberg would make a cordovan sneaker? Imagine an achilles on a ripple sole.. pretty bad ass.
