Look at what I just picked up from the post office (Leffot Alden Indys in Natural Chromexcel)

^ spend some good time wearing those on carpet to ensure no defects.  recent batches of clx indys have had some issues from my experience.

Ooooh, tough call - EG colors (esp nutmeg and tobacco) sure do give snuff a run for its money, but I'd probably have to agree with you!

EG's nutmeg would be a close second. fistbump.gif

I've had hankering for EG for about 6 months, but am afraid of pulling trigger for fear of the financial ruin that will befall me (look how much loss of control the Alden bug has brought on). Please don't mention EG anymore here :crazy:

speaking of which, only moronic retailers have pre-orders for boots in the dead of winter.  do your pre-orders in spring/summer so people can get the boots when they need them.  i can understand defending this decision in discussing rare shell, where it can take many seasons/years to receive boots, but for an estimable 12-16 week timeframe?  please.


And yet these moronic retailers will sell every pair of boot they have available regardless of when preorders are up (not trying to make a snide remark here, but at the end of the day the its about what the retailers are allocated by Alden and when)

Maiden voyage for some Cigar LWBs today. It's amazing how the color varies depending on the light.

I actually thought the same thing until I found the 403 on sale for about about 40% off.  I tried it and have enjoyed them thoroughly throughout this past winter... extremely comfortable.  Don't knock'em 'til you try'em. :nodding:

Hi gang,

Question on the indy boot: I'm once again very close to pulling the trigger on my first pair & am considering these from Union Made: http://unionmadegoods.com/product/alden-stevenson-indy-boot-in-natural-chromexcel-d3803h/

I've got a note into them but haven't heard back yet so I'm wondering : what's the difference between this "Stevenson" indy & the traditional indy in natural? Looks like a leather sole instead of cork - anything else? How would the leather differ in support from the cork?

Anyway replies greatly appreciated. Oh & is the regular natural CXL indy typically always abailable? Currently out of my size at the shoe mart.

THANKS
ww

I believe the sole is the only difference. A natural CXL makeup is not "stock" for Alden so I wouldn't say they are always available. I, personally, would not own an Indy on leather. Check out Leffot, North River Outfitters and maybe need supply.

Is that just a general question for anyone? If so. Yes, I do.
