    Hey Guys - FWIW I just received my Viberg Boondockers on the 2030 last from Leffot. I ordered 10.5, same size as my Alden Barrie & Trubalance last boots. Plenty of toe room but the fit is good. Personally, given the vertical taper of the toe box, I wouldn't go shorter. Hopefully what others have said regarding the 2030 & 2045 lasts is correct ('despite the shape differences you should be able to wear the same size in those two lasts'). Here are some photo comparisons of the Viberg 2030 and the Alden Barrie, Trubalance & Plaza lasts: http://www.styleforum.net/t/224463/viberg-boots/3000#post_6935532

    Really excited for my 2045 Waxed Flesh boots!

    Regardless of how many preorders I do and it seems most of my shoes are done through preorders the wait does not get any easier.

    Ok, so now I'm confused but I think I know part of my question. This MTO is coming with a commando sole. And I'm guessing it's the "normal" commando type sole (the only type I thought commando referred to) with the mini-lugs, correct? Like what we expect when an Alden boot comes with a commando sole? Or is it the commando sole with the larger lugs that you can see from a profile view?

    This is the question I came up with when looking at the black CXL service boot that was just restocked. It comes with a "Itshide Club Commando Sole". This looks to me like a Dainite sole. What is the difference?

    My expectation is a heftier sole. Alden's "commando sole" is much more low profile and mini-lug. I expect it to look more like this

    Not a ton thicker but something heftier than Alden's

    Did you get in on the original preorder. I only asked so you don't get your hopes up since it looks like it's your first post and this order is closed.

    Thanks for the update. Are we going to get an email or an update to this thread before they ship out? I just want to make sure i'm ready when they do come. I live in an apartment and i've already had a few packages just dropped in front of my door when I wasn't home and unfortunately stolen. and could you let us know the carrier as well? thanks very much.

    Hi,

    When they arrive, I'll announce it here. You'll also get a shipment notification from USPS.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I would love to see an in-process shot or something. I would think they should be done any day now.
