I almost missed the 7 hills indy and bought a pair without a second thought when it was restocked. One of my favorite boots. Although it might not be everyone's taste, I really like the rubber sole on the indy. Mind to share info about the new indy?
Showing my humble collection of Alden, from left to right:
Bureau Indy (claim to be barrie on website, but I'm pretty sure it's trubalance)
Blackbird #8 PTB (barrie)
Leffot Whiskey (barrie?)
Epaulet Tanker (trubalance)
I think the whiskey tanker from Leffot is not barrie as it's a lot more narrow than the PTB #8 that I bought from Blackbird. I ordered the same size as my usual size with barrie/trubalance last. Luckily, it still fits me perfectly.
