^ I've searched high and low for this boot.  I contacted Moulded Shoe on the off chance there will be a future run.  Waiting to hear back, but I already know the answer...

Well if it makes you guys feel any better I had to order these from Frans Boone in the Netherlands and had to pay a fortune for them in doing so.

Ha! I wish I had my Indy's on the other night going to a Christmas party. It just started spitting when I left my house, but 4 hours later there was 10+" in the ground. I was wearing my JGilbert Color #8 medallion toe shoes, slipping around around as I was shoveling my car out for the drive home. But all was good as I toweled the shoes off, let them dry over night, treed them the next day and brushed them later on.

In higher elevations we got 36+" and it skied great for my first couple days of the year this weekend. Yesterday I pulled the trigger on some new skis so my Alden budget is on hold for the next couple months. But it is good that winter is back ON in Tahoe! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Nice cigar plain toe boots, gentlemen

A question for those who own or have owned unlined cordovan PTBs... Don't they feel a lot less "solid" on your feet than traditional PTBs or other Alden lined cordovan shoes? My 990s feel a lot more substantial and solid on my feet than my unlined black PTBs. I like the unlined/flex welt feel on more models like suede dovers and chukkas but I'm not sure how much I like the unlined feel as we go through winter.

I do know what you mean with the unlined being less "solid" than lined shoes.  However, I don't think this is necessarily a problem unless you expect the shoes to pull heavy winter duty (although I still believe they would perform admirably).  I think the shoes were designed to have an airy feel, so I'm ok with how they feel on my feet.  Maybe it depends on your expectations of how the shoe should perform.  I'm happy with them because I have other shells to hit the winter streets.  If my shell Dovers were my only shoe, then I might be wishing for something a bit more well rounded.

Cigar Pitts are downright awesome.  The eventual patina of these boots will trump almost any other model I can think of.

Another member on the forum (Crat) has been know to use a stiff fingernail brush, wrapped in a cotton rag, to work on his shell... nod[1].gif

Thanks! Will use the stiff brush on my shell exclusively.  Good tip on the fingernail brush. :fonz:
