The Janus is really nice stuff, hope more colours come out although I could buy both right now without regret. Natty CXL RO is a slam dunk.
Truman Boots - Page 63
Those look great. I'm kinda/sorta thinking that's my next pair, but then again Truman keeps surprising me w' new/unique/different stuff that I think I need instead.
Regardless, this thread needs more pics of well worn Truman boots.......
Looks good! I am afraid I don't use mine that hard, but it is nice to see someone who puts them through their paces. Would you describe which leather and which sole you got on them? How do you clean and maintain them, if you do?

Picture from the first day:
I only recently received them and have not cleaned them as of yet. The roughout seems to shed dirt and mud more readily than smooth leather.
For weekend use in the past I have cleaned off work boots with warm water and a horsehair brush. Rubbing excess water off with a towel, then leaving them open to dry, applying mink oil or conditioner and using shoe trees as necessary. However I'm still undecided on the cleaning regimen for tor these boots.
Truman's first week of work.
Absolutely loving them so far. Haven't worn my RW's since these came in.

Anyone else use their Trumans this hard?
My trumans got a scuff when I dropped one while putting it in my shoe rack...was like a three foot fall!!!!...LOL that is about how much rough work mine see...Although I do anticipate that changing as I get ready over the next month or so to thin my boot & shoe rotation in a big way...wardrobe needs have changed somewhat so this will be a good time to really look at what is getting worn. Going to be very tough to do.
