No. Those are Aldens (of course). Pre-order is for a plain toe OSB boot--pics earlier in the thread. There's a cap toe version coming at some point too.
Natural CXL Indys are available a few places. The Shoe Mart and Epaulet for two.
Wow, I don't know what I was thinking haha. Long day.
I'm thinking about buying some Navy Vibram Sole Trail Oxford UK size 10 but after reading various post's I'm a little unsure how to proceed as people have said buy 1 size down even if wearing socks. Ideally I don't want too go a size down and six months down the line have the 'wide stretched look' because they don't it properly
I own a couple of pairs of Redwing moc toe boots UK size 10 and whilst they are cool with thick socks in winter (which is why I bought them), but they are quite loose with thinner socks.
I do intend to wear the Vibram Sole Trail Oxford with thin socks and possibly without socks in spring/summer so any advice from yourself and from owners of this footwear would be appreciated.
We sold that boot at the Pop-Up Flea, and it was purchased almost exclusively by guys who work/design in menswear - LVC, BillyKirk, RedWing and Woolrich guys all picked it up and walked away with them. Daiki from Engineered Garments encompassed the feeling of the boot best - he saw and loved the ripple sole, and then nodded with approval when we told him about the American Bison leather =) In fact, we're emailing him today because he asked that we let him know if we have a pair in his size left after the flea, so that he can purchase it.
For those interested, we have approximately a size run of these at Dunderdon in SoHo (25 Howard Street) - and they are available by phone order as well.
The boot has come to be known as the 'murder moc' hahaha, but it's official name is the 'Trapper Boot'
