    hello there

    I am brand new to this forum but I have done what feels like a round the world trying to find a pair of boots that both look how I want them too and are hard wearing. I did, I found them only to discover that the company doesn't keep them in permanent manufacture.

    I really like the Viberg boots based on the 310 or 320 last and preferable in a durable leather. I feel that after reading this forum I am going to be expected to know a lot of details that I wasn't aware of before but I am a complete nubie to this subject. I am an older guy who just want to wear a pair of boots that feel great and wears well too.

    I am wanting to know anything regarding the sizing of Viberg boots and the leather and how well it wears. I am a UK size 10 in any boot I have ever worn (which isn't many as I had an operation to remove a plate that prevented me from wearing boots) The only issues is every boot I have ever worn as been too narrow. I have tried to track down a Brannock device within 100 miles of me but not one shop uses them. I visited several shoe shops and all they could tell me was that I had a wide foot and when I mentioned I was looking at american sizes and EE they said the UK doesn't use that sizing and that I was just a wide fitting.

    I would really like to be able to purchase a pair of these boots and for the first time in my life it's not money holding me back it seems to be location ( I live in Cornwall in the UK).

    Please could anyone shed some light for me I did a forum search for a topic like this and I didn't see any in the first 50 results that came up.

    Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

    Kris

    Sorry for the late reply and thank you for your time and advice, I did in the end buy a pair of Viberg boots in the 320 last they are perfect, I bought them from a gentleman in Germany. I really like the 320 last and would definitely buy another pair.
