    These look great! Can you please post the build specs -which leather, toe style, etc? Did you have to specially request the triple stitching?

    This is my order from Wesco, I first talk with Chris and he is the one who put in my order in the system.

    Basically it’s a Boss 7400 but with a Western toe. The MP toe and the standard heel wasn’t compatible in my size.

    My favourite at the moment has got to be the Role Clubs, they're just so comfortable, closely followed by the Lofgren's. Not sure what you mean by order?

    I think I'd probably put the Lofgren's as no 1 really, they're certainly tougher than the Role Club's and no wait. 3 would be the Viberg's, an awesome boot but I could have gone a half size up. Wesco 4, but could be higher depending on mood, they're a great boot. White's have got to be 5, a good boot but a bit clunkey compared to the others, also not impressed with how the half sole is attached.

    I took a 10D in Wesco, White's and should have done with the Viberg's, so also a 10 in the Lofgren's.

    My 15 years old chinese made Chippewas and about month old Chippewa Whirlwinds.

    Old ones were the most amazing boots for the buck, paid 59$ for these back then and I have worn these about everywhere. Replaced heel pads once (DIY job), leather is supple and has much life left, although looks cracked and scuffed up well. I have treated these with my homemade leather preservative about twice a year and they get occasional polish with Kiwi polish. Size is 9E and they need heavyweight socks.

    New ones seem to be a little bit better constructed and lether is thicker. Actually these will need a little bit more breaking in to fit as good as my old ones. After triying some different sizes, I bought 8E, because 8.5E had too much heel slip. For some reason the last of these is much narrower and they weren't so comfortable out of the box as those old Chips.

    anybody has experience with Viberg's new fashion engineers? their "horsebutt", in brown and pure black? the last is their Chealsea last, different from the 2005 previously on their website.
