PTB. Vintage Hanover. Bought NOS a few years ago on ebay for just over $200. Best deal on footwear I have ever gotten. They are built like a tank. The quality is very high - easily on a par with Alden. Had they said "Alden" I suspect they may have fetched somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,000. In doing research and corresponding with Horween, I would put their production in the late 1970's.
They are a great pair of shoes, just not nearly as versatile as, say, color 8 or cigar.post #73279 of 1224162/12/14 at 6:00ampost #73280 of 1224162/12/14 at 6:15ampost #73281 of 1224162/12/14 at 6:32ampost #73282 of 1224162/12/14 at 6:33ampost #73283 of 1224162/12/14 at 6:34amQuote:

Color 8 Full-Straps maiden voyage. ShoeMart seconds. They managed to get a ton of bloom over the past few weeks.

Get the color 8 indys w/commando. I wear my color 8 indys more than any of my boots...one of my favs easy. I wish mine had commando. I would say the 8D Tru and Barrie fit pretty close.

As one more update on the Need Supply x Alden Union Hill Indy, it looks as though there is a chance that they may not make it to production at all. Per Need Supply, "Unfortunately we are not sure if we will ever be releasing this boot. Alden shipped them to us with major defects and all of the product was sent back."
So, yes, it is a bummer, as it looked to be a great boot. With that said, Need Supply wins my Shop of the Year award for making Alden culpable for its lapse in quality, even if it would have been a good selling boot. I don't want to be a Moses leading a campaign against Alden, but there does need to be this sort of push back (from both shops and customers) for Alden to acknowledge that they have had a quality problem lately, and that they need to take real steps to correct it.
TL;DR: Need Supply is awesome, and TSM may have a boat load of tan Indys hitting their 2nds list the next time around.
Hmm...now the Union Hill is back up at NS. Who's going to be the brave one to order first?
