Best Alden Indy Boots - Page 4
I was wondering what you guys recommend for the most "comfortable"/supple leather in these boots? I recently purchased a pair of Vintage Indy boots with the full leather lining and am so in love, but the whole situation is in a holding pattern as I wait to hear back from Alden, as there was a defect/blowout in the stitching... if it's repaired/guaranteed to be stable, I'm gold, otherwise I'm back to just the pair I have now. Either way it's good to know what you guys have experienced. I might even go black next time - I LOVE those "Black & Tan" Indy boots, but they seem sold out now. Sigh.
I have found that my brown Horween Chromexcel Indys have broken in to a butter soft boot with amazing character. The soft leather lining was amazing from day one...i actually said "ohhhh yahhh..." when i put my foot in for the first time. Truey the most comfortable boot/shoe i have ever owned.
Hey I'm rather new here, so I have a noob question. Are these all sold from the Alden store/website? It seems as though some of these are like some sort of recreations, or modifications or something. Sorry if it's silly but I just don't understand. I don't see any of those on the website.
The reason I'm asking is I had some boots from Allen Edmonds but the first pair had a defect, the second pair ripped on the side, and I told them I didn't want them anymore, and I got a regular shoe. Except now even this new shoe the rubber on the front tip is peeling away, and I'm just tired of bothering with Allen Edmonds. I really want a nice boot, with great leather on the inside and outside, that I can wear in foul weather, but I was not impressed with all the trouble from AE.
Although preferably I would prefer a boot longer than 6" hiking. I don't like those lug laces, if you don't lace em up tight, they slip off, and if you lace them tight, it pinches the hell out of my ankles. Just seems like 6" is a really ackward height for a boot.
