Hopefully mine fit as jcrew are sold out of the size 7 Indys. My 7.5 redwing 1907s fit perfectly and same with the 1ks.
If they are a bit big I guess I'll get an insole bc I got them 25% off and can't beat that price for Indys

No doubt they will fit. I fit my shoes pretty snug. I wear thinner socks.

Compared to my Indy Boots in 12D:


These are stiff as hell, but they fit my size 13 D feet pretty well.

Matt, you could've just bought them from me on SF and saved the Grailed listing fee! :P

I think they are terrific -- that is a great leather and very interesting.  Should evolve very well over time and be pretty near weather-proof beasts.  I do not find that Trubalance works for me, though, and I've found from trial and error that the standard Indy boot isn't really compatible for my wardrobe/style.  It has its appeal but just doesn't really work for how I dress, what I wear, etc…  If it were offered as a tanker on Barrie or even Indy on the Barrie last, I'd find them very hard to resist.

I preordered from this batch. It is a very nice shade. Best iphone picture I could manage...

No matter how much I try I can't stay away. Thinking of selling my 4060HC in color 8 shell and picking up one of these. I wore the 4060's once since I moved to Texas 9 months ago so I see no point in hanging on to them. 

 

Which one to go with? They both have the brass eyelets and the Alden commando sole which I prefer.

I saw your listing here after I paid for the boots already. You could have told me about it after I sent my initial offer.

It's all good, though. These shoes are basically unworn with barely any scuffs, and cost me $200 less than retail.

I would go with the alt wein. I think I would get more wear out of them. They are both nice makeups though.

That would have been nice of him. But congrats anyway!

I went with the Epaulet alt wien cap toe.... they have worked well the last 2 days with the snow here in the northeast.

Looks like it's unanimous. Alt Wiens have been ordered.

 

I've always liked the versatility of the Alden commando sole but with the new job there are days when I'm on my feet quite a bit. I've realized that the extra bit of cushioning from a commando or dainite sole helps a lot during those days.

Owners of reverse tobacco chamois boots: what do you use for care? Is there a conditioner that needs to be applied?
