I have the Vintage Indy, through LeatherSoul. But my socks always smell funny based on the Nubuck leather.

I also have the Snuff Suede Indy in a narrower size. It fits me better too and the suede is just more comfortable

The rubber soles really stand out like a sore thumb on the "vintage" boots...

Suede is always more comfortable. It becomes more comfortable over time I have found.

I do like the snuff suede.

One of those is very likely my next purchase, I just don't know which to get either!

That's what seals the deal for me. My Vintage Indy's are perfect weekend knock around boots and in my climate with rain, snow, etc. the leather/commando soles are perfect.

Could you please post some real life vintage photos? Or confirm whether the images available on leathersoul represents the actual shade of color?

Sorry..I'm not digital camera compliant yet. My vintage indy's are a somewhat darker brown than the pictures on Tom's website but not too dark...at least for me. I've got them on right now as I'm off in a few minutes to trudge around the campus to meetings on a wet and dank day. My St. Crispin's are resting comfortably in my office staying dry.
