Someone just ordered the last black size 11,5 @ Speedway shop so I guess I'll have to wait for the next run, bummer...

Sorry mate. That was me. 

Haaa, couldn't resist eh brotha?  Well-played my man.  It may be a while, they haven't ordered the next run yet.  The sooner they get rid of the rest of their inventory, the sooner the next run goes, sounds like.  So get em while they're hot!
Think it, be it.

I agree MCL as I stated I had been in contact with John about badalassi pair since may and he recently told me that they decided to go ahead with their workboot but were still waiting for lower inventory on engineers so could be another few months

Truth told lofgrens are my grail... As much as I love the RCs deoendingbon hiw these fit I may put the RCs up with the fresh resole if another production run starts and I'm able to get a badalassi or brown.... I just really have preference for the 50s style... Especially johns iteration of it.

That said we should probably strt a lofgren thread so we don't derail this too much and irritate anyone.  :)

It seems that John Lofgren name has been popping up quite a bit so I've created a thread to help us herald this great japan based repro company who makes exceptionally researched and produced repro workwear and what many consder the finest repro engineer  boot on the market today, I look forward to seeing everyone share and admire his line as much as I do

Pics to be added a soon as I get to my PC and off mobile  :)

Ha we both did that at the same time, I've asked the mods to delete mine, here's what I was saying over there in the duplicate thread:

I love my RCs too and will keep them, but I think Lofgrens are as pretty as boots come.  I had been looking at Lone Wolf, McCoys (Buco and Chippewa), those custom Wescos you grabbed, and others for my black engineers and I just couldn't stop looking at the Lofgrens longingly.   Should have pulled the trigger sooner, these have been the apple of my eye for some time...

Think it, be it.

^Mclain, the thread's deleted, thanks.

Do you gents want me to move your posts from the 'show us your boot' thread to here?

Agreed, I like the wescos for the black fire leather and think they might be a bit more rugged than the lofgrens so my thinking was that they will serve a great looking purpose in the winter and bad weather as well as allowing be to keep one boot a solid black for a more "dress" look I suppose. I can't wait to get my lofgrens looking like VEB's.

what's your size in your latest Viberg Boots mate?...

UK10,5 D which makes sense as I measure a US11,5 D on a brannock device ;) the consensus on the Lofgren engineers seems to be to go tts, so it could be the safest bet, but there's always some exceptions to disprove the rule so it seems... Let's see what Tat and Mac's experience will teach us...
