Ed, ill mail you at evening (like 10 hours after this post), need to comeback from work and do research about viberg sizes...

Guys, anyone who already had vibergs, can some tell me sizes?

For example i'm wearing 8d in whites packers and 8d in RedWing GT,

do vibergs run the same size or should i take 7.5D?

I got a concern with size atm :(

you should be fine. I wear 9.5D in wesco and 9.5D in viberg. However, i feel theres more room in the wesco's. Don't you live near viberg? why won't you just stop by and ask them for a custom fit form or measure your feet.

Thanks for sizing advice!

Sadly not, i'm living in Moscow, so to visit Viberg i need to travel over the ocean :)

If it's your first pair, then you might want to purchase a 9" for the more traditional engineer boot. I think a taller boot falls kind of nice over time, with the creases around the ankle. Here are some pics for reference.

In regards to a smaller leg opening, I think a lot vintage pairs have a smaller leg opening. I have no idea why this is, but my vintage pairs are a struggle to get into. I like the look of the narrow shaft, however.

10"

I would agree with Coleslaw, go with the 9". The taller boots are quite nice too, but it depends what you want (I have 2 modern pairs at 10-11" heights, so I'm going shorter).

ps Rayw44; do you have any examples or motivation why u choose to have your engineers with shaft 1" smaller in diameter? I'm considering whether its an option for me as well...

As Coleslaw said again, it's because the vintage boots all have much smaller shaft openings. I have never found it to be a problem, but if you have large calves it may be hard to get on/off. The diameter of most of my vintage pairs measure close to 5", as do my Wescos.

thanks, i'll go with a smaller sized shaft as well. I have skinny legs so it shouldn't be too much of a problem putting them on
