Other than that... price.

It might also have to do with the leather lining, which my original 8EEE Indy doesn't have but either way, my feet would be hurting on a D sized Indy. Shoe sizing is...

I have purchased two from them now and the "mistakes" were minor scuffing on both. You can just return them if they're unacceptable. I got my pair of two stroke indys there for $300 delivered. (It's also awesome to see the vendor exclusives wind up there.)

It adds character peter. I plan on beating a couple of my aldens in to the ground.
Ugh Double ugh How did I miss these.
