The weight you felt was most likely due to the crepe sole.

Tom,

It should go without saying that those look amazing. Thanks for posting

I'm in a bit of a dilemma here. Wondering if I could get some input from the rest of you.

I'd love to own some Tankers and now comes the choice:

Black calf vs Brown chromexcel

Also, I'm thinking of getting another pair of Indy's as a general daily shoe, this time in the correct size. I've fallen in love with the Thomas (orthopedic) heel that its got on there, it's just incredibly comfortable for someone with fallen arches; in fact, the Trubalance last's description fits me perfectly. However, I don't know if I should go with the standard 405 or go with the darker 403 (brown chromexcel again).

I currently own brown chromexcel Ultimate Jumpers and J.Crew Indys (which I just sold as the sizing was a bit off) so I love the shade, just don't know if I'm taking too much of the same shade of brown... What's your input?

Lately, I've been wearing the non-shell Indy's pretty much exclusively. I'm in Madison WI for the time being and while the snow, ice and slush are everywhere, it is the salt keeps me from wearing my shells very often. Also, I've found that my favorites change a bit. As for now, the top three are:
Ravello Wingtip Boot (Epaulet)
Ravello Shortwing (LS but lucky enough to get a great pair off of B&S)
Tanker Boot #8

That was tough...ask me again tomorrow and the list would likely change!
