There are two ways the indy toe stitch is done. Machine sticth, and hand sewn. All calf/CXL are machine sticth. Most cordovan is hand sewn (there are a few out there that are not, like the ones mac has on, from what i can see in the pic.)
the hand sewn are bumpy, the machine is flat.
Thanks. Help me understand which is which then.
these look quite different than macs. both whiskey shell (i believe).
edit. oh okay, i see what you mean. Macs is hand stitched and rarer.
