    I just got these from a recent MTO they had, but alas they are a bit too tight for me. Brand new, only tried on for sizing indoors. These boots represent Truman at their best I think: an amazing horsehide leather from Maryam tannery in Italy, tight and well built throughout, and back to their original (Viberg style) stitched-down construction. The latter has become rare for them.

    Marked size is 10EE, but they don't feel esp wide to me, so I would say more like a 10D/E.

    The horsehide, stitchdown, cap toe, and half sole were all add-ons, so the boots were expensive. Total cost was $640 (ouch). But I will immediately knock off $120, if anyone is interested. So, asking $520 to me (Paypal F&F), plus $15 shipping CONUS. It hurts to take a hit like that, but I've learned from experience that there's no sense in keeping boots that don't fit..

    My phone pics are not great. Here's a glamour shot from Truman (with slightly different options than my boots). They really are pretty darn cool.

    I would probably take them if they were real ee but sounds like they would not be wide enough for me. Didn't Truman stand behind it's product? I was going to buy boots from them but now....

    I took a chance, knowing their return policy, which is that any special ordered boots or anything other than D widths are returnable only for exchange credit. Stock boots are returnable for refund I believe. So I could return these for credit I guess, but not sure I want to do that.

    NICE looking boots, shame they're too small for my feet. Damn shame.

    Likewise, I think they're probably a little long and narrow for me (9.5 true EE) but such nice boots I'd be tempted to try them...

    If they were bigger I'd be very tempted to take the plunge on those.

    FYI, a couple of people who know more about Truman sizing than I do have told me that their EE is definitely wider than what most folks would call a D width. So, I'll say these probably feel more like a 10E. (I am a horrible person to estimate boot sizing, as my arches are freakishly high, and everything feels more narrow to me than it is I guess.)
