Initial quality seems to be on par with that of Viberg. 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.
