Thank you all very much. So it sounds like 12.5 it is. Really appreciate the help.

So, some good news, and some bad news. Good news is that the black unicorn is all used up. I have all sorts of jokes about this, but the simple truth is that the yield on the leather was extremely low, and they went through it 2x as fast as they anticipated.

Good news is that I've been okayed to do a HoF makeup, specifically this natural CXL boot:

I am thinking, however, of doing it with 8 mini (#2) eyelets instead of 7 standard.

Thoughts on this?

This makeup will be decided on TODAY, and then put up for preorders for only 1 week just slightly after the other is done. It will be $710 shipped worldwide, which is better than ANYONE, including MrPorter. See it as my apology for the troubles with this set of makeups, and a way of giving something back (the price, for this week only, will be under the retail price anywhere, including at Viberg itself, and this will include pree shipping worldwide.

Cheers,

Fok.

That would be the 2030 last.

That is the same makeup, and one of the most popular makeups, that anyone has ever made. The difference with ours is that we'd have a slightly more "citified" 8 mini eyelets this run, which is not something I've see elsewhere.

It's natural cxl, and so should be comfortable pretty much from the get go, for most people.

Quote: Terrific model...I was lucky to grab one last round...right after a great Fok rant about some pricing elsewhere...I was so impressed that I asked if I could be added and he ended up opening back up- Thanks again as it is one of my favorite all time boots!

Yeah, I am prone to ranting. Great makeup though.

Cool - I love my pair. Wish I could trade mine for the 8 mini eyelets haha. You guys should buy these:

Yes! Sick makeup and I was kicking myself for missing it when Fok did the first collaboration with VIberg.

Fok, what's the diff between these and the Lost and Founds? Obviously the 8 mini eyelets if that happens and a straight vs broqued cap toe? Anything else I'm not seeing?

I think that that's it, but imo, it also makes the boots considerably different. This is a fairly standard makeup. We are also offering this for $710 shipped worldwide. That's significant, I think,
