Would like it better in leather though.

Great minds think alike.
I actually have mine wrapped in a piece of vegtan. It helps, but unless you cover that thing in carpet it's going to leave some amount of marking on your shoes. The main issue I wanted to avoid was the black markings of the rubber transferring to the upper.

LS UI is definitely a beautiful classic boot. Probably the best indy for most. I think brass eyelets are groovy, so I lean towards the Innsbruck. I also have a spare pair of flat waxed laces from my #8 J.Crew PCT . I plan on using those. I really don't like stock indy laces at all.

That's why they call it the Ultimate Indy! It's the ultimate Indy in my book.

This is such a plain, and not-so-sexy post given Dubs' new shell Indy, but oh well...  For today's temps in the low 40s, black Shell CT Boot, barrie and commando.

 


Not sexy, but under rated.

disagree sexy indeed. Lots more love for black shell lately. This isn't helping the itch!

Right on the money. I'm all about heel foxing.

Does anyone prefer EE sizing? Reason I ask is I have Indy 10 1/2 b/d and fit is good and I have LWB 10 1/2 b/d little long and loose, but minimal. I tried 10EE #8 Chukka and salesman was telling me these were a better fit for me and it felt great, but getting EE in my preferred style is like finding a needle in a haystack.

Picked up the Whiskey WTB and they are pure gold. The shade came out really nice - not too light and not too dark. Phenomenal shoe. Wish we didn't have open space seating in our firm else I'd be taking 100s of photos.

I must have just missed these. I spoke to Ed a few hours after the seconds list came out and asked to be put on the list for this boot. I also received a pair of 403s today from tsm seconds list.

Lol.  Hopefully not also an open floor plan.

I am a 10EE bannock and find that 10EE Aberdeen fits me well.

 

10E Plaza is a good fit.

 

10E Hampton

 

I really could use a 10EE in Grant as well, but 10E "works"

 

That is an anomaly in any maker.

 

You have to get on a preorder...and commit to taking them from the shop once they get them in...
