Has anyone noticed that all cigar indy boots are storm welted while the color 8's seem to omit the storm welt? I wonder why that is... Maybe there are some color 8 indy releases that do have a storm welt. But I haven't seen it.

Good one. Those Aldens look very nice.
Just brush them occasionally with a horsehair brush. You may want to keep some alden's wax paste (in color 8) on hand for spot polishing scratches and such. But use sparingly.
Yeah, ditto above info, and just remember that it's not just about appearances (controlling creasing) but more importantly about prolonging the life of the interior of the shoes. Interior damage is damage that typically can't be fixed during recrafting or otherwise. DRZRM, I'd start treeing those indys for that very reason.
Nice, would love to see an update a few months from now in how they're breaking in. All of the pics I've seen of the Aviators are of new shoes.

Thanks Tez and Patrick. This thread suddenly became informative again.
