I went structured perf cap toe, all nickel eyelets and dainite. I'm still pondering if I should have went unstructured.....

The mini ripple sole seemed like a good option too but I worried I would tire of it.

Structured, perf toe, speed hooks, nickel, commando, but thinking of changing all except the structured, lol.

agree on structured toes.

I think ripple sole with plain toe and nickel eyelets is the one for me.

It appears, if the website accurately reflects total availability, that there is only one more pair of Truman navy shell boot available.

Edit: Update: They're all sold out!

I have a pair of coyote roughouts that got muddy over the weekend. I cleaned them with a wet tooth brush and notice that the nap isn't the same anymore. Any recommendations? Or general recommendations for how to clean them going forward?

Anyone have pics of waxy black kudu in the wild? Ever since I bought some Viberg brown waxed flesh in the GMTO last year, my black leather CWU-45 bomber jacket isn't getting any love. The Vibergs outclass my black Wolverine 1k Miles so much that I mainly wear my brown A2.

 

I'm thinking unstructured cap toe, no pull tab, no speed hooks, nickel hardware, commando sole. Possibly also requesting a blacked out sole.

Anyone know if Truman accepts returns or at least exchanges? I've tried them twice with no response.
post #881 of 1328
I don't think they accept returns, but they generally will do exchanges for totally brand new footwear...if it's a sizing thing, they will try stretching sometimes...

They are Navy Cavalier. 

Cavalier leather is in fact Chromexcel, but using different dying techniques to get brighter colors. 

Here is a few pics of the same pair broken in a bit. (in 3 different lighting)

Notice the toe collapse on the unstructured.

These are excellent...I went with the plain toe, all nickel eyelets, studded dainite and unstructured in the navy shell order...but really torn on whether I should add a cap toe or brogue cap toe or just leave it plain.  I have a few service boots with brogue cap toes already, and these being shell a plain toe would let the rolls develop more naturally, but a regular cap toe would look really good based on your pair.  What to do...
