    If a 7.5 in the Notre boots don't work out for anyone, please let me know!

    I'm so bummed. They're much, much nicer than I thought they'd be. First time buying Vibergs. Should've listened to Fok when he recommended them so often. Now I really want a pair that fits...

    Has anyone sized down 1.5 from their brannock on the 2030 last?
    I have narrow feet (C-width) and am wondering about the fit.

    I tried it once on a great deal of a boot and it was too tight for me...I am an E width. Also felt it was on the short side.

    It's been a while, but Viberg still makes a killer pair of boondockers.

    If anyone snagged the last pair of Notre arabica suede on the 2030 on vibram in 11.5 and they don't work, let me know, I MIGHT be interested.

    Was it a tough choice for you all whether to buy Vibergs on sale or Yeezy boots at Notre?

    I'm a 8.5 in nike, 7.5 in alden chukkas, and 40 in common projects, 6.5UK in carmina - any advice on Viberg, in particular for the 2030 last, but in general as well?

    I'm gonna guess a 7.5 in a 2030 unless you have narrow feet. Then a 7.

    All other lasts 7 is my other guess.

    Probably 7.5 in 2030. If your Alden is Trubalance then your 2030 size is likely to be the same.

    I actually think you're a 7. The Aldens your are referring to are on Aberdeen, correct? I'm generally 9 in Nikes, 7.5 in Alden Barrie/Tru-balance, 7 in Carmina Forest/Rain and 7.5 in the Viberg 2030.

    Man that is so weird. I'm generally a 10.5 in Nikes and I have to take a 10 in 2030. It's insane to me that you could size down 1.5 from your Nike size. I probably just have a large forefoot.

    Is 2030 the narrowest last for Viberg?

    In truth I only buy Nike maybe once a year to work out in. I've worn 8.5 in the past but recently find 9 in the flyknit the most comfortable. I have plenty more experience with Alden/Viberg fitting but posted my Nike size for the sake of the OP.

    People's relative sizing varies so much because people choose sizes based on different limiting factors on their feet. Also, some people are almost certainly getting the wrong size in some of their footwear. Sometimes, they get the wrong size because they need a different width than is available. Still, I bet there is a half-size worth of margin in heel-to-ball length and footwear size.

    I have long heel-to-ball lengths, so I get Viberg 2030 and work boots in 10, which is only a half-size down from my USA Brannock of 10.5C. I am not certain that 9.5 wouldn't be good. Some steel-toe Vibergs in 9.5 seemed a tad short, but that might not be a good indicator because they need thick sock, which take up length in addition to volume/width.

    I wear an 11 (or rarely 11.5) in most athletic shoes.

    Anyone have sizing experience with 1035 scout boots? I've only tried 1035 on a derby shoe where 7.5 (8 on the derby shoe had too my slippage) is good for me there, but there's only an 8 available for some boots I'm looking at. I do wear an 8 on all 2030s. I should probably just pass on them.
