The value proposition is much better.

Fit is similar to 2030, but 1/2 size smaller. 

I wear 8 in 2030, and 8.5 in this Truman last.

The last is only slightly sleeker.

The instep seems to be similar. 

I don't have any unstructured toe boots from Viberg, as mine are all partially structured. 

The proportions are slightly different. the vamp feels shorter, and the cap on the toe is a hair longer. 

The heel cap does not extend all the way to the pull tab.

 

I want to be careful about comparing them to Viberg.

I don't get the feeling they are trying to be a "Viberg copy".

They appear similar, but it sounds like they have a lot of interesting things in the works.

Cavalier is a variation on Cxl that was made for brighter colors.

Danite has dots for treads.

Dante Logger is a lug sole. (I think)

Yes exactly and the logger is a tap sole which means you get no black break in the heel stack

Logger is a 2 piece sole, much more aggressive lug than Dainite.

not sure if my eyes are playing tricks on me but im counting 8 eyelets?

 

i thought truman only allows 7?


You're correct. My boots have eight. I got mine before he officially started taking orders, so they are the previous pattern. Personally, I really like this design.

I'm trying to decide on a toe cap or not. For those who have them, are they pretty uniform on both boots? I have seen some pretty crooked or different looking toes on other custom made boots. I don't know if it is more of a risk to order them or not.

I recommend the cap toe. I think that they add a little bit more character to the boot. My pair is very uniform, and they have very good quality control so you needn't worry.

I've been eyeing Truman boots for a while now, and these impressions and input are excellent for those of us Viberg owners who might want to take the plunge. Thank you!

I see the opportunity with Truman to make certain customizations as being a huge plus. I'm not sure I see the more bulbous toe being so good. I also see longer delays on the immediate horizon. But overall quality (Leather, Build) with few mistakes is also very promising.
