Got an itch for a new Indy boot that needs scratching.  Who carries the Indy in snuff on commando?  I know LS and AoM have in the past but neither currently carry it.

San Fran does it, but on the Double Waterlock Outsole. My understanding is that the Madison version is on the Red Brick Outsole. CitiShoes does it, with the Commando, but on the Barrie Last, which is actually a rather interesting alternative. Not sure who else off the top of my head. But there are probably others.

AoM used to carry it on commando, but you're right, only red brick right now.  I'll look into the Citishoes as a Barrie options is intriguing.  Thanks!

Give Voltaire and Pascal a call tomorrow. It's not on their site, but they do stock it.

Found a reference...

Do you all follow the Mac break-in method for new shoes? I wore my boots for a few days inside of my house before I took them out, but I'm not sure how much of a difference it made.

Will never get the awesome patina of the other cordovan colours, but still love the depth of these compared to my calf shoes.

Got these alden black shell boot maker editions from the shoe mart and they arrived yesterday. They are great except for two divots on the toe of the right boot. I'm debating sending them back since these were sold as firsts or is this something easily fixed and am I being overly judging of these boots? Is this something that can be fixed with a deer bone?

My fiancé was able to see the divots when the boots were worn, so they are slightly noticeable.

It's a close call. They look worst in the third photo. If it bothers you, return them and ask for a different pair.

Color 8 Tankers x AoM today. The shell on these is so thick it's crazy.

Do the pull loops look much smaller on this years tankers from Context? Which one do you guys like better? I'm wondering if I should still order them. I appreciate everyone's opinions.

 

new ones

 

older ones

I don't know it's the "Mac" method, but I bring mine to work and wear them around my carpeted office for usually 2 days. I usually do quite a bit of walking throughout the day. After that I wear them as normal. My toe tends to drag a little so I like to get the soles a little flexible before their first walk on concrete.
