can i ask anyone with these boots if a uk 10.5 would be true for an 11.5 us size? thank you advance
I am a 11.5 on a brannock device and I wear a 10.5 in Viberg 2030, 2045 and 240 last. They have all been tight at 1st and after a few wears have become my most comfortable boots.

And looking very good......
Thanks again for the super fast delivery. As always it was a pleasure to do business with you!!!

These boots are badass. Love them. Think I'll have to sell a few others of my collection now...

I am constantly eyeing the pair of 10.5 that keep popping up on eBay. 2 problems they are way overpriced and secondly not sure why someone would exchange the lug sole for a dianite sole on these but McClain is so right these are dead sexy

I do not think so. He told me months back those were gone. Maybe the dude who bought them is trying to resell them.

i decided to treat my rough out copper task boots with dubbin after doing some research on youtube and via forums. the advice is provided by military, x-military and military enthusiast guys treating their rough out boots in the way it was done in preparation for the water and gas filled environments of the conflicts in the first half of the twentieth century.

Excellent! Thanks so much. I've just bought tmg's pair and they are on their way to me as we speak. I'm trying to work out my options for treatment/wear, so this is really helpful. I really like the two tone effect!

Boom.

I've a pretty great track record at being late to the party and I've decided it's the way forward. IH/Vibergs now, IH/Wescos next year.

These arrived today just after the first snowfall. Ridiculous pair of boots. I'm in love. On the downside, I now have to seriously consider hemming all my jeans anew, as they are currently hemmed for stacks when wearing trainers... First world problems.
