Seems to be.. mine are just waiting on soles for about two weeks now.

 

Not a huge deal, just anxious to have them.

I am sure someone will be in need of a nice pair of Truman size 12 at a good price as the fall and winter approache. In the meantime if anyone has a size 11 for sale please let me know.

You don't have to go through the buyer at all. You'll just deal with ebay, and I can guarantee you will get your money back. Why take a loss when you don't have to?

People who post incorrect information on a sale need to be dealt with.

If you don't take the route of getting a refund, @q1445, you might want to list these by approximate outsole/insole measurements rather than a size since it's hidden away pretty well on these boots. Was reading something in the Buying and Selling on Ebay Thread here, and it's pretty easy for a buyer to send the shoes back to you based on a wrong size claim when the size is not clearly marked on the shoes. If that makes any sense. I'm sure there are some Ebay power sellers around here who can explain it better.

But you don't want to have to take a return on these if you are going to sell them on.

Thanks for the advice everyone. It is definitely appreciated, and I understand what your saying. Here is my 2 cents on it. I feel like I got a good deal on these boots, $330ish including shipping. I am happy to pass them on for the same price here. (An extra 10% on eBay to cover fees) I put in the leg work to figure out the size. I can garentee, and I can verify they are if fact size 12s. I don't want another buyer to get burned by the seller. I think someone will eventually pick them up, and be happy with the info I can pass on, and the price they get from me. I have learned that when buying anything online, you win some......, and you loose some. Don't ever buy anything for more than you think you can turn around and sell it for. I could even wear these if that's what it comes to. I would prefer a size 10.5-11 but these don't feel too bad, just a little long. Keep your ears open for me in a 10.5-11 and let me know if any are up for grabs! Thanks.

I have a pair of the marrone ordered. 13 weeks is a long time. I didn't order them until late September, so they will be my Christmas present to myself :) I saw on their Instagram page that they have some new templates in for wide and narrow boots that they plan on putting to use soon. I ordered mine narrow, so I am hoping this gets me pushed to the front of the line somehow! Originally, I ordered the commando sole but now I am starting to have second thoughts. Any advice on the commando vs danite soles? I was thinking that the marrone looked a bit more dressy, so the lower-profile danite might look better but I still like the look of the commando...decisions....decisions.....Other than getting a custom-shaped surfboard, I can't think of anything I have waited this long for or been this excited about receiving.

Personally, I far prefer commando over Dainite, though I'm in the minority...

^ X2. Have both and prefer Commando. If you're looking for more dressy, you probably picked the right one.

I like both commando and dainite. Most of mine are on commando, so I went with dainite for my upcoming Truman - the stone rambler - although I too am having second thoughts. I still have time to change the sole (I think), but I need to decide in a hurry.

commando for me too.

although the mini ripple is appealing to me these days. might have to do something about that soon

Anyone have a line on other photos of this graphite horse rump? Would be interested to see what the pull up looks like.

New widths pose an interesting dilemma: I'd say I could use a shade more room but I hate to order an unusual leather and wait a long time on a sizing gamble.

I want to try the wide out as well since I want to know if that will solve the tight vamp as well as give me more space in the toebox, but its an expensive trial :/

What size are you? We can make boot sizing a new entry in the "sharing" economy. rotflmao.gif

On a serious note, I see that they have the wide listed as EE. I assume this means two widths up from D? So really wide... Not sure I need that much width.
post #1123 of 1287

I think you got a bigger foot haha, i'm wearing a 9.5. Yeah I saw that it is EE and not E so not sure if want too much width in there.

 

If I'm ever in the area or if standard and strange stock the wide width, I will go try it out.

I believe on IG they said their standard last is suitable for C through E width customers.

it's not just the width but the waist or vamp whatever you call it that is a problem for me. A little wider as well would do my feet good too.
