The construction is quite clean, the stitching is a solid step above my 'bergs, pretty much flawless. That said, the right captoe is a bit longer/slanted. This is something that might not come across in photos in general so I included a top-down in the last photo. Is this something anyone else has noticed in their Trumans? If so I might just get it rebuilt with a plain toe.
A note on sizing - I'm an 8.5c brannock, take an 8c/d Barrie, have 2030 boots in both a 7.5 (stitchdown cxl, short but workable) and 8 (stitchdown shell, slightly long, preferable). I originally ordered in an 8 and changed the order to an 8.5 a week later. I don't see an invoice in the box nor markings on the boots... assuming these are an 8.5, another vote for TTS, pretty much spot on. Don't notice the low instep issue nor do they feel wide anywhere, toe-box included. Pretty damn close to a barrie boot a half size down. I'd say my size 8 shell 2030 boots are slightly longer than these in an 8.5.
