That is a great first post and some beautiful #8 Indy boots. Well done. Enjoy them well and keep them coming!
I just acquired a pair of Alden 405's just over a month ago and I'm pretty sure that the stiff heel strike has caused my back and hip to have some soreness problems. Anyone have any experience with that and using insoles (Dr. Scholls, etc) in them? I'm staying off of them for a bit to let my back heal up because it's pretty tender right now.
