    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm located in the states. Canadians should not have to pay any additional customs, since these boots fall under NAFTA regulations. Someone mentioned that GST might be levied. I have no personal experience with this.

    We ship USPS, so there should be no brokerage fees.

    I am making the very last day for orders this coming Friday. Unfortunately, I have some surgery next week that will put me out of commission for a few weeks, and so, want to get the order in before that happens. So, again, the very last day for orders will be February 7. We have 8 orders in right now, so it's enough for a go ahead. I don't plan to entertain any last minute orders (I'll tally up stuff on Saturday morning, and then just put it aside and hit "send" on Monday morning) so if you want to get in on this, please go ahead and make your order this week. This change has already been changed on the store description.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    sorry to hear of your surgery; I wish you a speedy recovery.

    I will not complain about getting my boots a week sooner! I will put my order in tomorrow.

    Just wondering why is there a shoe on the order page? is it just to show the color and the wax texture to be expected on the boot?

    That's a different leather; it's an example of the unstructured toe box on the 2045.

    It's there to show the 2045 last, before it is worn. The shape of the toe, unconstructed, is rounded, like the unconstructed 110, and not like the constructed examples that we have seen elsewhere. This is the first non individual run of Viberg boots on the 2045 last, so there are no pictures of brand new boots in this last around, that I know of.

    Ohhh the unstructured toe boxes are different depending on the last? I'm so newb. So basically I shouldn't be expecting a toe box similar to this? I was hoping to get something like that...without the cap toe of course

    That's a heavily worn boot on the 2030 last, so it'll look a bit different.

    Hey all,

    I'm looking for a little advice on this... I want to get in on this order, but I'm a little concerned about the sizing and last. I own a pair of Vibergs:

    http://vibergboot.wordpress.com/2012/06/27/horween-navy-latigo-brick-dainite-sole/#comments

    Mine are a six eyelet boot, but otherwise the same as the photo. I sent in tracings for these, and was told a size 12 would fit me best. My current boots are comfortable, but I've noticed a little "buckling" of the leather around the eyelets when I tie my boots. That is, after I tie them an walk around, the leather around some of the eyelets tends to pop up or form little...hills? Please see the photos below for an example.I don't know if this is normal, I noticed this after wearing my boots a few times. Makes me wonder if I ordered boots that are too small...

    I never thought to ask what last these boots were on (my first mto, newbie mistake) and now don't have a frame of reference for comparison. I emailed Viberg at info@viberg.com, to see if they still have my info, and have yet to hear back.

    FYI: I wear a 13D in OSB trenches and rough outs, a 13D in Chippewas, and a UK12 in a Tricker's Eaton on 4497 last.

    I don't know if I should buy this latest mto in a 12 or 12 1/2?

    Any and all advice would be sincerely appreciated.

    Can you post a picture of the boots? The attachment doesn't contain them.
