    I am entirely joking. Wish I picked up a pair myself!

    I have never heard a single instance of Trubalance being tight compared to Brannock sizing. Some measurement is off somewhere

    I've been sized 9.5 D on a Brannock twice now, maybe I just have a large instep or high foot volume?

    This is helpful. How much narrower is the toe on 2030 compared to an Indy?

    IMO you just have to try it out. Someone posted up pics recently comparing a whole slew of boots including the trubalance. The Indy just has more volume at the forefoot.

    If you are comparing it to Aldens, IMO the 2030 boot fits and looks most closely to an Alden captoe boot half size up in an E width. I wouldnt be able to wear the E width Alden captoe boot in the same size as the Viberg because the Alden is a little too narrow.

    I would just take a damp cloth to clean the outer and if you want to shine it up use an old t shirt or brush it if you like. Dont really care much for brushing though. Def use shoe trees for at least a few days just to clear it up a bit.

    Thanks, didn't know if latigo leather required any special care compared to regular calf, cxl, shell etc. Looking forward to really wearing these down this winter then changing the sole out.

    Yup, same problem, mainly on my left ankle. I use no show socks, but have to put a band-aid where the shoe hits my outer ankle bone. Also, discovered flapgate on the right shoe upon 2nd wear.
