Great looking boot - reverse tobacco chamois, commando soles, natural welt, leather pull tab, brass hardware - Thanks for the lead!

Great boot. Wish someone would bring out tobacco chamois (not the rough out) version…a bought one from TSM in 2013 and then sold it, but regretted it after. A great leather.

Although not exactly chamois, the Shoe Mart and others do carry that kudu version of the Indy with the lug soles.  I have always resisted buying that version but it looks like a fantastic winter and foul weather boot.

I've actually owned the kudu Indy on two occasions. There are things that I like about it -- it does serve that purpose pretty well - but I'm personally not a fan of how the kudu leather ages. It just looks kind of crappy IMHO. At least with CXL, if you take reasonable care of it, it will develop an interesting patina. For rougher wear, I've picked up two pair of custom White's Boots, and have been extremely happy with them. They're just more robust and well built for that kind of thing. I tend to keep my Indy's for casual and dress casual these days...

I've owned the kudu too. CXL is just a much nicer leather. Nice to see someone else appreciates White's. Those boots are badass.

Thanks for the notes on kudu.  I really like CXL myself, so I guess there's no need to experiment with the kudu.

Do you have the link for those laces? Looking pretty good.


Sorry for the late reply ...it's off amazon (UK seller but I got it in like 8 days).

 

http://www.amazon.com/Strong-Flat-Waxed-Shoe-Laces/dp/B007B8SKL0/ref=cts_sh_1_fbt

 

Love the laces...I bought it for experimentation but never took it off. I get compliments on my Indy almost on a weekly basis even from people who don't notice shoes in the first place.

 

Just today at my work, a medical vendor (cute blondie ;-)) complimented on my boots. I think the tan flat laces do excellent contrast on the dark brown leather.

What length did you order? Enough extra length to wrap around?? Thanks in advance.

If anyone here is in LA, I found some Unlined Chukka Boots in Tan Suede (1494) for $248 at the Steven Alan Outpost on Hillhurst in Los Feliz today.

 

 

 

Worth nothing: Some might be seconds/damaged. I saw water stains on the display pair but picked up a pair of 9s in perfect condition. Might be good to double-check the sizes on the actual boots as one box I looked at had the wrong size in them.

What else do they have. I am in town for the weekend.

Oops. Sorry I missed this earlier. That was the only pair of Aldens they had in stock. There were a few pairs of Common Projects Achilles lows, though, if you're into that sort of thing. I think one was black and the other was a dark grayish color (might have been suede). It's a fairly small shop but there are definitely some good discounts there.

Thought I'd post a recent acquisition here as well. Plus I want to shamelessly plug my Color 8 Indy's that are now for sale in my sig...

Recently lucked into a pair of Cigar Indy boots on the B&S forum. These are from a 2012 run at Alden DC. They seem a bit closer to Ravello than Cigar but I'm definitely not complaining! They came to me a bit banged up but a good bit of deer boning, Venetian, some Saphir brown cordovan cream and lots of brushing gave them a nice shine.

Maybe the only reason I'd want small feet is to find more shoes like those...
