    Not sure. But I plan to order when the next couple leathers drop. Pretty excited first pair of service boots. Love the black rough out, and wonder how the kudus and Janus will turn out.
    At very least they have a reasonable 18$ shipping rate. Unlike most brands.

    There appears to be a couple Canadian guys in this thread who have boots.

    I just picked mine up from Canada Post on Saturday. I bought Vince's sample for the Cognac inferno. I did a light coating of venetian just to darken it a tad.

    Other than the obvious stiffness from being new, they are very comfortable right off the bat! I love these boots.

    I'm not too well versed with leather lingo, but I'll do my best.

    It doesn't have a shine like the chromexcel. It's quite matt and supple. I noticed with chromexel that when you stretch the leather the colour change stays, whereas with the inferno the colour change isnt as apparent, and returns dark.

    The leather also seems more resistant to scuffing. Though, I feel that it will definitely need some leather protector as it absorbs everything it touches very quickly!

    Those are nothing other than spectacular. Great choice of leather for that order.

    Hi,

    I have tried to contract Truman regarding sizing and shipping cost to Australia, however I received no reply from their website's 'contact us' function. Could someone provide me with a email address of Truman Boots?

    I wear Alden berrie last size 9D, Viberg 2030 size 8.5. What size am I looking at for Truman's?

    My wife wears RM williams in size 4 and Caterpillar boots in US size 6, again what 'Truman' size for my wife?

    Thank you guys and girls.

    His online contact form doesn't always work. I'll send you a PM with his email. As for sizing I think 90% of people go with their true brannock sizing. That's what I did and my boots should be here in a week or so. If you don't know your brannock size go get it checked out.

    Commence non-buyers remorse for not being on this GMTO. I was in the middle of a few other acquisitions at the time, and didn't think I "needed" these. Boy was I wrong! Great looking boot. Hopefully Vince stocks that leather so I can jump on.
