Those ultimate indys are beautiful. The aniline calfskin on these is different from Chromexcel, or is it the same material? I thought they were different but now I'm not sure.
Those boots of amlai's are kind of famous. Unfortunately, i believe he sent them in for recrafting and alden re-dyed them against his wishes. So they lost that great patina.
If anyone wants a pair of the Giffords in 9.5D then pm me. After wearing them 10-12 times I realize I don't need them. I received some shell indys as a christmas gift and they suit me better.
MKB's chukkas aren't shell (creases) but Bostonian did make shell shoes back in the day--and nice ones at that. I have a pair of their wingtips in shell.
Just want to respectfully disagree with those who think the shell indy boots are too dressy for raw denim. The styling of the boot is casual from top to bottom, esp. with a commando sole. The shell only seems dressy when the boots are new or well polished. A few pics can be found on SF and elsewhere that show how well they can look with denim.
I'm sure additional pics would help.
Framus, if there is a fit issue with your boots, it may be in the width rather than the length. There does seem to be more leather up front than your foot needs, but it's tough to tell from one pic. You would have to try on some narrower widths to confirm. This happened to me a while ago with their cigar chukka--too big, a few more ripples than usual. Sizing down solved the issue (Anyone need a used 9.5D cigar chukka?) Watchguy, aren't all the Alden's made from...
Price drop on all shoes
