For comfort and usability, however, the CXL Indy boot works better for me (E width and commando sole vs the slippery dainite sole).post #92958 of 12241610/8/14 at 3:57pmpost #92959 of 12241610/8/14 at 4:00pmpost #92960 of 12241610/8/14 at 4:11pmQuote:Originally Posted by Michigan PlannerQuote:Originally Posted by tifosi
I haven't checked, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Leffot Vibergs aren't sold out already. May be a really easy choice. I'm on the reverse chamois Greenwich as well. I can't wait to get them. I'm not on the Viberg bandwagon yet. I'd rather buy a pair of Alden and save the money.
I had the same thought on the Vibergs (I was tempted by both the Leffot pre-order and the upcoming StyleForum group order). I like them well enough but for the price, and how much I'd wear them, I'd rather go with Alden.
I could not pass the leffot black viberg up...think it is the best black boot I have seen. I had zero desire for another black boot until I saw that and I like it more than the other Viberg presales getting ramped up.
Now when I get a alden commando 8 nst boot with brass eyelets...I will have all the boots I need....
Yeah right lolpost #92961 of 12241610/8/14 at 4:11pmpost #92962 of 12241610/8/14 at 4:12pmpost #92963 of 12241610/8/14 at 4:29pmPSA: I had to return my Cigar LWB to Alden SF, because I was not able to sell my leffot color 8 in time. So someone who's 10D may want to contact them and see if they have received my shoes.
I guess I'll have to wait for the next batch, and the game starts again...but man, those cigar with dark edge are some real gem! I do prefer them over the antique edge.post #92964 of 12241610/8/14 at 4:40pmpost #92965 of 12241610/8/14 at 5:19pmpost #92966 of 12241610/8/14 at 5:26pmpost #92967 of 12241610/8/14 at 6:03pmpost #92968 of 12241610/8/14 at 6:51pmpost #92969 of 12241610/8/14 at 6:53pmpost #92970 of 12241610/8/14 at 6:55pm
Great looking shoes. I'm interested in the Alden Plain toe bluchers (model 29364).
I noticed that shoe mart also sells brown chromexcel under a different model # 95080.
Can you advise on which model you have? Would love to see some other pics of these shoes if you have any from a side angle :)
