Yeah I'm wondering if LS may have dropped the ball simply by naming it the Comfort Indy. Like it's the boot of choice for retired, arthritic Indiana Jones. The guys who bought it seem to like it, based on the comments though.

Grab a pair and give us a review. smile.gif

Does anyone have any advice on water/weatherproofing Alden 403s without darkening them? I am hesitant to use Obenaufs or Sno-seal because I have heard how much it darkens the leather, and I like the color as is.

ime, the darkening is minimal. im wearing my 405's today, treated with both mink oil and sno-seal, and they do not appear any darker than pics of new pairs.

What size are you again? How well do these stay on your feet? I grabbed the ones in the link below because the reviews said that they worked for large feet and they do. Haven't had any problems with them.

Every other brand I looked at had reviews that said they slipped off of larger feet.
