 Give me a fucking break. This is literally what I wrote in my email: "The right boot has some markings/irregularities in the leather on the toe. I understand that something like this is pretty typical for the kudu leather. Just wanted to get a second opinion on whether this would be considered within normal tolerances. It almost looks like the leather is cracking on the surface and flaking a little. I attached a couple pics with/without flash. If this is normal, I'll be...
  I heard back from Vince and he said the flaking/scarring was more than normal. There's probably nothing wrong structurally, but it's certainly unatractive. He offered a full rebuild or partial refund. I'm going with a rebuild in the exact same configuration/size, since otherwise these boots are exactly what I was looking for. Overall I've been a little skeptical of Truman's customer service throughout this process, but they're winning me over and I'll probably order...
I finally received my waxy black kudu boots after over 7 months of waiting. I went with mismatched sizes and that worked out extremely well, they fit perfectly TTS to my Brannock size. However, I need a sanity check on the leather on the boots themselves.   The right boot, left side of the pictures, has some kind of irregularity in the surface of the leather. Is this something particular to this type of leather? Presumably, these passed some kind of QA process. My...
 Thanks for the info everyone, I got tracking this morning. Truman also changed the shipping for me to require signature confirmation.
Do you all get tracking when your orders ship? I have had a couple packages stolen from outside my condo's front door recently, and need to be extra vigilant when something like this is coming in.
Some information about my experience so far:   I made a custom order June 9 and reached the 18 week mark without hearing anything, so I checked the website for my account/order status and found that I no longer had an account. The account feature definitely was a thing, since I had a password saved in my password manager. Two weeks ago, the website was set up so that if you attempted to log in and entered your password, it would automatically create a new account if it...
  I took the plunge and ordered these in 14 left/13.5 right. I figure since my feet are half a size in difference, the best way to reduce risk that my sizing is off will be to actually order boots that are mismatched, and the consensus seems to be that Truman boots are TTS. My order is basically the makeup shown on the website except with nickel hardware and 7 eyelets. Looking forward to them!
 Any more thoughts on the waxy black kudu? Thinking about getting a pair.
Anyone have pics of waxy black kudu in the wild? Ever since I bought some Viberg brown waxed flesh in the GMTO last year, my black leather CWU-45 bomber jacket isn't getting any love. The Vibergs outclass my black Wolverine 1k Miles so much that I mainly wear my brown A2.   I'm thinking unstructured cap toe, no pull tab, no speed hooks, nickel hardware, commando sole. Possibly also requesting a blacked out sole.
