Dang, I want this boot with just a plain leather sole. I live in the desert. The J Crew version cap toe doesn't have storm welting I believe, cool shoe but kinda minimal that way. Pass ... any suggestions ?

Heads up for anyone: Alden SF has color 8 Indys listed on their site under the Indy boots. Sizes 6.5D and 8.5D-11.5D still in stock.
AoC has a similar make-up sans reverse storm welt, broguing at the heel, and eyelets... could always send them to B. Nelson to have eyelets installed, but the other two not so much.
Uh Oh, this is the boot.. sorry.
have it rosoled at b.nelson i did that with a pair of theshoemart ravello shortwing boots
Next time you guys lose it over 5% increase on rare shell...think of these puppies.
Pretty sure thats just a ravello PTB...in non horween shell..
I love BCs stuff...but they are always out to lunch on pricing.
ps. love how they call it 'smooth italian calfskin' in the description.
they also call it an oxford when it's clearly a blucher
In the last few days there has been some back and forth about shell v. calf on the AE thread. I added a comment or two about it. Below I am reproducing a post I made over on that thread earlier today. I would highly recommend each shoe pictured, particularly if your dress is of the business professional variety.
I have both the shoes pictured, albeit on the Hampton Last, and not the Plaza. So the comparison is one I know from personal experience.
A good Friday to one and all.
