Congrats Lando!
Those incoming Roy Boots will definitely complement your extensive Iron Heart collection.

About 90 seconds later one of them raises their hand and asks: "are you wearing uggs?"


You should have given a lecture on high quality shoes right after that

Anyone know if the Leydon last runs narrow? One retailer mentioned that it does but I haven't heard that from others.

I recently picked up a pair of tan suede chukkas on the Leydon last, and it is definitely the most narrow Alden last I've tried on (others are Barrie, Trubalance, Modified, Grant, Van, and Hampton). However, the material should also be taken into consideration. Since the chukkas are suede, they've stretched out considerably after a few wears and are very comfortable now. I'd be leery of cordovan on the Leydon last, though, as I don't think it would stretch to accomodate my D width feet.

Nice collection. I assume the first indy w/the cat's paw sole is the 403?
post #3970 of 122416
theyre actually ultimate indys from leathersole resoled by okuyama san from fukurokuju
post #3971 of 122416
The uppers look supernice and great re-sole.

Out of curiosity, was there anyone who could re-sole with the soles originally spec'd for the ultimate indy (leather with black rubber insert up front, I think). I'm assuming Alden restoration would but I want to confirm. Considering getting the 403 and having the leather/rubber put on when the cork soles wear out (a few years down the line, granted).
