Agreed. Other retailers would do well to emulate their product photos.

I install those black nylon/plastic heel and toe taps ... they are super easy to install and replace.

For me, the LWB run a little larger than my barrie lasted boots (J Crew cap toe), but not enough for me to change the size.

Thanks. I am considering stepping up both a half size and width. The D width Barrie fits me will but is just a touh tight on my wingtip boots (I simply use my thinner soks and its perfect). I need to try an E width in each to see the fit. Plaza is tough to find to try though. As a result I end up buying mainly Barrie lasted only because I know exactly how it fits

I really like the sleek modern look of the Plaza last but am concerned it may look too dressy. Do any owners of boots on the Plaza (preferably #8) wear these with denim? Or is it typically with a dressier pant?

I have color 8 captoe with blind eyelets and Safari boots on Plaza last from LS on order and defiantly planning to wear these with denim.

Unique means "one of a kind." A noun is either unique or not, and cannot be quantified or qualified.

The best adjective here is "rare."

The Day Tripper is awesome, though I wish it had a double leather sole.

Thanks Teach'! teacha.gif

When did the preorder for these start? I got in on a pre-order for a pair of tan suede longwings from LS in January of 2012. I was hoping those would be ready for this summer.

I think Oki emailed me the full list about a month or so ago.

I want new shoelaces for my Indy Boots. What are my options?

1) Alden will mail you a pair if you ask. 
http://www.aldenshoe.com/


2) The Alden Madison store will sell you waxed laces for ~$6. 
http://aldenmadisonny.com/


3) Red Wing model 9011 will work, request them here 
http://www.redwingheritage.com/laces/


I tried the Red Wing trick last week and, lo and behold, some nice flat laces arrived within 5 days.

Are the Benjos colored laces too dandy-ish? If not, you can pick some up at a local AE store.

Good luck!!

Thanks for quoting from the FAQ! See my sig for more info. Additions/modifications always welcome.

Nice shoes guys! Hoping The Shoe Mart drops an email soon with their seconds so I won't have to wait so long to buy a pair of Aldens! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I just ordered a pair of shells from the list they mailed me two months ago.  Hoping a new list with a solid boot selection comes out soon!
