Speaking of Context, who has some Roy Boots? I'd like to hear more about them. I wonder how they compare in looks and durability to the chromexcel indys.
I didn't realize the forum special was the Turnout--my favorite Williams boot (which I'm still looking to buy in a 9G)!
DrZRM, I like the way your ultimate indy's have broken in. Have any more pics of them, closer up? I don't often see pics of these after they've been well-used.

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.
