yeah, I think I could pull off a full size down, maybe one width up, in truB last.. I'd love to grab a cheap pair of 11D or 11E truB boots to try out.  I find these jcrew indys are quite spacious now that they've broken in fully

Don't give him ideas. He will get a second pair just for that

Interesting, my other brand CXL only stretched about half a size. but maybe with the different width they'll work.

yea I sold off all my other CXL. While I enjoyed the ease of conditioning,  I wasn't a fan of the aggressive stretching (imo)

I hear u as I am also frustrated at how much they have stretched and always trying to find a way to get it fit properly and without future mistake....

What do you guys think about this interesting makeup from unipair? Navy cxl indy. Anyone on the preorder list?
post #77423 of 122416

Those look great to me!  But, how does Navy CXL look with dark denim?  Does it clash?

500plus. I have some navy cxl blucher arriving early next week. I will take some pics with a few pair of jeans and post

I have navy buttero sneakers and think they look good with jeans so we will see how navy cxl looks

I think navy is good on denim. I'd say it's still pretty versatile casual shoe choice. I wear my navy loader with jeans all the time.

...at ~$737 they're too rich for my blood. That being said they look darn right amazing!

Steve,

 

Sweet Ravello PTBs! Must have taken an extra half shell to make those for you! Amazing that they can do that whole shoe with essentially one piece of shell in a size 20D for you! :-)

 

-Mike

Mike-It's the shoe box that's a size 20, the shoe is only a size 13! In most brands such as AE, and Cole Haan I wear a size 14D I agree it's amazing they can do a whole shoe in my size like that with 1 piece.  However...I'm told that Alden uses Clydesdale horse butt specially for me :)

 

Growing up my parents had a hard time finding shoes to fit me.  I was a size 12 in high school, and that was way before the internet.

 

See Ya,

Steve

If I were to spend 700 on a Navy Indy it would be these. They are just beautiful.

Not a fan, esp for the price.  Save the dough and get more versatility with the 401 black indy.
