    I'm definitely thinking about it... so this boot will be unconstructed toe, which is a nice flat toe box like the last pictures above me? If so I like it. I just measured my foot and its 10.5 inches from heel to big toe, and the sizes on the order page is in UK you say? Never ordered UK sizing..mmmmm my last boot was in 42.5 EU. Any suggestions for UK size? any estimate for when we should be receiving the boot?

    sorry for all the stupid questions - newb love!

    I sent guy a sizing question and this was his response
    Hey there,

    Apologies for the late reply. All of our boots are sized the same way, which is technically US. A lot of people make the UK comparison because our boots fit large (like most boots), but they all leave the factory tagged the same way. If you have any other questions just let me know.

    Thanks,
    Guy

    Sorry for more sizing talk but most of the comparisons I see are with aldens / us made shoes - if i'm a uk8.5 in trickers (4444 last) 8.5E in loake etc. would i size the same in viberg?

    Anyone order from the UK before? I assume getting bent over by customs is a highly likely...

    How can I not be in for this? I need to read back some more to confirm sizing. I think I am seriously addicted to this game. Really not good for my retirement funds.

    I will be ordering from Europe, and I'm pretty sure customs will charge.

    They size like most UK brands.

    I take a 9 in trickers 4444 last, and a 9.5 in Vibergs.

    without getting too hung up with US vs UK sizing....

    Alden Barrie/Trubalance 9D = Viberg 2045 9 correct? At least that is what it seems like reading and re-reading all the various threads.

    Also, how durable is the Wax Flesh leather? I live in the Tahoe mountains and would be anticipating putting some serious "patina" on these boots. Yeah, I have Sorels for the 2-3 feet of snow we are supposed to get tonight into Fri.... but I am hoping with regular leather conditioning, the Wax Flesh leather should stand up to slushy sidewalks etc.

    Wax flesh should be able to stand up to slushy sidewalks no problem. It's roughout coated in wax, so water shouldn't get absorbed into the leather. The leather itself is also pretty oily.

    That sounds perfect for a nice Tahoe beater boot! :)

    Viberg used it on their country derby boot for a reason—the entire pattern is designed to fare well in wet conditions. I've been wearing CXL service boots through some terrible stuff, and the leather works perfectly. This is like that but a roughout version that's been weather proofed.

    What are we looking at as far as an estimate of when the boots would be delivered?
