    Anyone who measures a 9.5D/E brannock device can tell me what size they went with?My sneakers are usually size 9.5 to 10 and running shoes are usually a 10 2E.

    I have wolverine 1000 miles in a 9.5D which I should have returned as I thought they could fit. Should have gotten a wide.
    Also, have timberland boot company blake winter 2012 in a 9.5 that fits better width wise.

    Thanks for the comment, I guess I can shoot Vince an email and see what he says as well. Was thinking on going 9.5 more than a 9 just for the length and extra width.

    I'm 11D Brannock, generally an 11.5 in sneakers, 11D in Wolverine 1000 Mile, 11D Alden Barrie. Took 11.5 in Truman. 11 was too tight.

    Anyone have a direct email for trumanboots? I've sent correspondence through their website and through Instagram and haven't heard back.
    Maybe someone here could help?

    What would be the best leather option from them for rainy/snowy conditions. Waxed leather?

    Pm'd you. For water resistance yes I'd say waxed flesh. Also CXL. And there was a photo at one point of Vince pouring water on a suede I think. Maybe it was that coyote rough out.

    Frankc. Yes that was the coyote but I agree with you the cxl and wax flesh would be good as well

    Thanks guys. I've got a couple of CXL boots so waxed flesh with a Dainite logger sole would be a welcome addition.

    Maybe consider the commando sole for rain/snow. It's got a deep tread and gives you a full length rubber sole. Pretty comfortable too.

    I think Vince is pitching the Madone as an alternative to CXL too. But I think waxed flesh is an awesome choice. I love mine.

    The waxed flesh is awesome. You can essentially get two looks out of it depending if you keep up with the waxing. Isn't the Dainite logger similar to the commando? I just read that the main differences are the Dainite loggers are lighter and may be a bit more durable but take longer to break in.

    I think the logger soles are like the Alden commando sole, meaning the fore foot sole and heel are two separate pieces with leather in between.

    The Truman commando sole is a full rubber sole and I think the tread is heavier.
