Which site is this?

So...I sent my #8 Indy's back for recrafting- I think they did a really good job. Cleaning up (and repairing) the boots nicely without losing the character of age and use. The current color is really cool- almost woodgrain-like

here is a before and after:

BEFORE:







AFTER:







In contrast to much newer #8

Very nice.

I think they were ready.

I am surprised they did recraft given the initial sole condition.

Great boots.

^ Indys are redonkulous.

^+4 It looks like a mahogany with incredible depth.

Those put me over the edge. Does anyone know of a wait list for Cigar Indy's with commando soles and speedhooks?

Awesome. Those should now qualify for "gently used" and near retail on eBay!

Only good on sale items, they are now sold out of the two Alden PTB, the suede indy shoe posted a earlier today is the only Alden still left.

Well- resoling is part of the recrafting process so I was counting on that...I do tend to blow thru boots and shoes pretty quick if they are my "go-to" shoes...I havent had to dress up very much working from home so these boots got most of the work the past few years...

Absolutely fantastic - great job of wearing the pi$$ out of a nice pair of #8

 

EDIT: How long did it take you to wear them out like that?
