Those look awesome.. too bad i'm 10.5

@skyfall those are terrific looking...

 

So got these puppies today the Aubergine Horse Rump derbies....first off I can see why there is a problem getting a good photo of the color....the indoor shots even corrected with photoshop and taken with my Olympus could not get it right. The outdoor shot with the camera phone is much truer...Thrilled with these and I would order and buy this pair again as is, which to me is always a sign of happiness with a pair...will post some details below pics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So first thing is - I love these - color is just what I wanted - something between burgundy and brown. Fit is great - lasted looser than my boots on the instep. On my part I should have insisted on full double soles then the logger as I think the beefier aspect would have been nice - especially in size 13...minor thing. Happy with the heel cup - no slippage. I should have also requested the heel cup stitch line I think with the cap toe it would have been a nice balance. They feel like a boot with it's shaft cut off which is exactly what I wanted...while I love Viberg I did not want the pointier shape that their 2030 derbies take nor did I want the lower toe profile. Full footbed liner is a grand slam!

 

 

For me this shoe hit's it out of the park on design shape and function.There are a few minor QC issues but nothing I am worried about. 

 

One thing I noticed as posted earlier - there is no doubt a sort of curve to the sole on these...and also the midsole's have a slant towards the leather while my boots are all flat. My guess is they have some new machines or new methods that find better. I only have worn them for an hour but there is no break in required it seems.

Personally I like the rounder toe better cause I aint no skinny dude! LOL.....something is not right regardless length wise. Structured toe also combined with a cap toe in my experience will also initially look wider.

The captoes on my amaretto horse hide boots are not real. It is just the captoe leather stitched over the vamp leather near the seam just like the Vibergs. I can actually see and feel where the vamp leather ends under the captoe.

Dainite logger is far and away my favorite sole- no long break in process- lighter than full commando and gives you the unbroken heel stack look.

Those look great, Kahuna75.  Evidently I'm mistaken but I'd thought they discontinued using 2 piece Dainite soles to include the logger.

Only a few left now, but they started a sample sale last night....

They may have discontinued it- when I got my first pair of Trumans a few years ago - I was having a few more built and asked for this sole-we then did some sole changes- full commando on one and the RLH on another - so I asked he keep them for me for future builds. I honestly was hoping he still had it when it was time for this build.

Slight eye roll at them making this samples AND seconds --- and they will not show pictures of any imperfections on any seconds, so you have no idea if you are getting a wonky boot or not and, if so, how wonky.  Not that anything is left anyway.

Speaking of soles, I've just about decided between their most used ones [full Commando (one piece) & full (one piece) Dainite] that the Commando is softer & more comfortable from the get go, which is interesting since I'm currently wearing a pair of  AE Higgins Mill boots w' Dainite soles that I find very comfortable.  More comfortable, even, than a Truman w' the same sole.  Weird, I know.  I've a few pair of Trumans & mine are about evenly split between those two soles.  I think I prefer the look of the Dainite, but it's not a deal breaker if I'm shopping and a "buy now/ship now" pair become available.  Maybe age has something to do, as I'm sure the rubber sole gets harder over time, as I've got a pair of Teak Waxy Mohawks that I bought used and the Dainite on them is very hard.

 

Anyone else think Truman's Commando is softer & more comfortable than the Dainite?

I browsed through most of them, even ones not my size and saw at least one flaw mentioned.  Something about the toe leather being cracked while lasting....

 

I waffled too long on Gaucho Kudu in my size.  I didn't need them (naturally, & welcome to the club) but I find Kudu interesting and those that have some speak of how soft and comfortable it is.  Had they not had a cap toe they'd be coming to my house, even though I'm not in love with that mottled beige/tan color.  I'm starting to think the smaller sizes look better w'out captoe.  I was hoping to see some graphite horse available...

Depends with dainite...dainite on double sole takes a while to break in - while some AE models have dainite that is stitched with essentially no midsole(see below AE Gobi) and those are like slippers to wear

 

 

I find my Truman Commando soles to be very comfy much more so than the pair of Trickers I have with full commando. Also I have a pair of Vibergs that are I am guessing 5 years old on Dainite and it has not gotten firmer at all.
