Joking aside, are the heels different? Do they fit differently?

Yes it's very bizarre, the Longwings fit differently too. I did some more comparing last night and the longwings are bigger than the boots in almost every dimension. It becomes more apparent when I compare the soles side by side. I even double checked the inner shoe for the size just to make sure they weren't miscaregorized... But sure enough, they're 9D just like the boots.

These things are going back to J Crew!!!

Wish some stores would understand that whiskey Indys need to be on the Plaza last, not the Trubalance. (Actually, all Indy boots should be on Plaza if you ask me...)

 

And yes to a whiskey NST boot! Love this makeup from Leffot:

If an Indy boot is on the Plaza last, it ain't an Indy boot - they are supposed to be clunky, casual boots IMO

I wear tan suede LWB with shorts. It's a good look.

I have read these drill bit polishing devices do not work particularly well.  If you want the real deal, man up and buy a Pilgrim. Just my $0.02. Cheers.

Maybe that really is the mac method..... It was Mac's little secret. Until he sold the idea for $6.7M. Probably what he was doing during his "tax season" hiatus.

If there are ever another offer of Whisky or Ravello NST boots, I think a lot of us will all jump on it. They look amazing!

Had no idea they did a preorder for this. When did you put your name down?

Very jealous.

You're right, technically it wouldn't be a real Indy, I suppose. It's just that I really like the "Indy" on Plaza, I think Leather Soul sold them some time ago.

I didn't order from them, but several other members did just a couple of weeks ago.

 

I was just pointing out how many exotics had been confirmed this month. for the record, I only picked up the cigar tassels.

 

and yes, everyone should get a pair of ravellow sw boots. (the real king)
