The 1035 is a good match for this leather in my opinion. Also a great fit out of the box compared the 2030. One boot shows more grain than the other but it doesnt bother me because after they wrinkle and being an unstructered toe it will kind of even out. How many chances will I get to have a boot like this? All my male friends are AMAZED by the bison leather but female friends look at the leather and just shake their heads.
