I kind of like the smell -- it's oily and rich. This is also a pair of shoes that will hold its own against raw denim.

Outstanding pair.  Thanks for the after pictures.  I am officially going to use my color 8 Indys, just received this week, as my winter boots.

Does anyone know where I can find longwings in brown CXL with blind eyelets and a double leather sole similar to these natural CXL from shoemart? I prefer the CXL in brown rather than the natural. I remember that Leffot had longwings in brown CXL, but I wasn't fond of the open eyelets.

A couple interesting Aldens up on eBay in an 11d Aberdeen (I'm not the seller and have no idea who it is). I'm curious as to their provenance given the seller's description.

Tanker Boots ? 

 

Question about the boots that Citishoes sells (model 4020HC)......Their version is on the Barrie last, commando sole. Are these also known as the Tanker Boot ? If not, what might be the differences ? Thanks

yes, these are tankers.  

 

Tankers are vernacular for boots with the open lacing norwegian handsewn front.  Many of the make-ups of this boot are put on the barrie last.  Some (like J Gilbert) have it made on the plaza last.  I think I may have seen the boot on aberdeen last somewhere - aberdeen is the last that the Alden stock NSF shoe is built on --  but I am not sure about that. 

 

Citishoes has its NSF make-ups -- shoes and boots -- made on the Barrie last.

Thanks for the heads up. Scored the last 9.5 on that one. Also, the NS veg tan Indy has quickly become one of my favorites. However, the slick leather can make a lot of noise when moving. Instead of "Shell Love", maybe I'll make a video on the sounds of "Calf Love"...or not.
