They (the Indy8s) are from J. Gilbert...
These are probably closer to 22-23yrs old...and to be honest I have probably only worn them at most 50 times over that span. They were originally purchased to be my dress shoe and were mainly worn to weddings and job interviews...and sat idle for years at time. They have been brushed but have never had any wax or paste applied. It wasn't until a couple of years ago when I started looking for new boots and wondered what Shell was all about that I realized that I had a pair of shell and their condition and attractiveness convinced me that shell was worth the $$...and now several $k later...I am a goober posting pics of my shoes on the internet
They still look great!
