    Yes, died through.

    Ha, that's why prices had to go up every year! 15 million dollars represents a lot of Indy boots...

    Yes, I've been tempted by these 4Q collabs as well. But ultimately I'm a toecap guy.

    Chippewas after 3 years or so of regular wear. It’s a shame they discontinued these. They were affordable, looked good (to my eyes), and were hardwearing. Not fancy, but got the job done. I wore my last pair for over ten years, and had to get these replacements on the ebay. Still a few floating around, but starting to dry up.

    I found the SJs to be much more narrow in the toe box than the SD last. It's a little surprising as they look chunkier, but to me they were like two widths narrower... Just in the toe box.

    Thinking about ordering a pair of Truman boots for the first time. They've got an MTO with some nice looking horsehide going. I've seen both good and bad about them on the interweb; wondering if anyone here in the trusted group has had experience with them. And especially if anyone has owned or handled their horsehide from Maryam tannery in Italy.

    Ah right, they look good.

    I’ve had two Chippewa engineer boots over the past 15 years, and they always have the coolest looking tongue marks (if you like tongue marks).

    Thanks. An old flathead Harley it turns out. Pretty nice!

    My goodness -- Is that an Indian in the background? What year?

    Dang, too small for me. I remember when they first offered these, right at the launch of the new website. Wish I had got them then. GLWS.

    So, when are these Vibergs going on sale, and what size are they?

    BTW, anyone know where the name "Rolling Dub Trio" comes from..?

    These look very cool. I've never seen a pair with any wear on them. How do you like the fit and feel? I've always kinda wondered how that straight-up tight lacing area would work..

    And some slightly used Viberg 310s that I just picked up off the interweb:

    White's, black CXL, nearly six years of wear, resoled once, treated once or twice a year with boot grease. Treated maybe twice over the years with black cream shoe polish, but not for a while. Bright sun brings out all the scuffs.

    Not sure what it would mean to be the new snake oil provisions ( I know of the store but never dealt with them), I can say I’ve dealt with S and S and they seem like good folks. Forthcoming with information to my questions, and they took a return with no problem .

    I’ve come close to ordering from them, but never pulled the trigger.

    The Lofgren boot is natural (undyed) cordovan. It looks horrible at first, but will indeed darken up quickly and look pretty cool in no time. Not that I'd buy it -- certainly not at that price -- but it's not white and will not look like that for long.

    The Truman waxed flesh look great. A chunkier toe than I would have expected.
