I only know suede, where Tarrago seems to be the darling.



Well that fucking sucks. :sad2:
yeah my barrie size is 8.5D/E or 9D/E depending on socks and if they're boots/shoes.

these are a 8E and i just dont wear them enough because my toes start to hurt after a while :hs:I loved those boots but my foot has flattened out enough that they just dont work. Going to list them for around 800 and see what happens. I doubt ill get anywhere near that, but you never know.

Scrub 'em a bit with a damp microfiber, drop a bit o'Saphir cordovan cream on them and brush - $800 no problem. :bigthumb:

These are interesting. Not a $1300 gamble I'd take, but interesting nonetheless.

Been wearing the 2030s enough recently to start wanting a pair in shell again, but no way I'm playing the waiting game bullshit so no bourbon or glazed natural for Slotho. :wtc:

The Dainite on these is just about toast. Has anyone had their Vibergs resoled? Is Viberg the only option to get the doublestitching done correctly?

saw an email on those drywear print vibergs last week, but those are definitely way too busy/flashy for me. With the amount that I rotate through shoes, I'd expect it to be many years before I need a viberg resoled, so I'm no help there

Let’s see the bottom of those. Mine have hundreds of miles on them and are nowhere near bottoming out any of the divots.

Word. The toes are pretty dragged, and the nibs are all worn down flush with holes save for the last row. Heels are surprisingly not bad for their age but for some reason my heels never get super worn.

I can probably get away with one or two more seasons, but I'd love nice fresh new bright doublestitch threads up top. :rofl:

Thank fucking God. :bowdown: :rofl:

The one thing that is terrifying about danite is when you walk on a white stone/tile surface.
So damn slippery :rofl: I really want to cut some grooves between the pads with a dremel or something and see how it goes

Oh snap, you might be on to something! Dainite with siping could be the new marble-office-foyer friendly darling!
