While thinking about how awesome the Naval boots are I realized that its quite surprising that no retailer has done a #8 Indy with antique edgetrim yet. Seems pretty crazy we havent seen one surface while every other Alden #8 model has been revamped with one, but the Indy boot.

Great news. The tanker gets all the fanfare but the naval boot is an incredible makeup

Hey guys, I need some help with Alden Indy boot sizing. I haven't been fitted in ages. I am generally a size 9D. I have a pair of Wolverine Courtland 1000 Mile boots in size 8.5D. That's what the guy at the shoe store recommended and they fit great. I swear my feet are slightly narrower than a D. Anyway...

I just received a pair of Alden Indy Snuff Suede boots in size 8.5D from Alden SF. These boots are the bomb and super comfy right out of the box. After trying them on in the house for a bit, they fit great, just have to get used to the roomy Trubalance last. The leather on each side at the top of the boot almost touches when you lace them up. Does that make sense? Same thing with my Wolverines. I have skinny, chicken leg ankles. Would a narrow width or smaller size correct this "issue?" Is this something I am going to have to live with since I have skinny ankles? smile.gif

It may correct one issue and cause another. Fit is a very individualistic thing, as long as your feet are comfortable I would not sweat it.

I remember seeing one a long time ago on a Japanese language site.
Like in the 2008 timeframe.

I have really grown to love wearing boots over the past 2 years, and these not only feel great, they go with absolutely everything casual – from jeans to cords to chinos. I really like the brown CXL!

Most of my shoes/boots are Allen Edmonds, although I also have a few Church’s and Dacks (a defunct Canadian brand) from more than a decade ago. I’ve been buying AEs because I really like high-quality shoes, but I get fairly uncomfortable with purchase prices north of $500. I know from personal experience that when well cared for, $300-$400 shoes can last 20 years or more.  Given how much I have grown to like these Indys, I will see how they develop over the next six months or so, and might have to consider upping my shoe purchase price ceiling on a regular basis.

Aged chromexcel is a beautiful thing

Long time reader, first time posting.

 

I finally took the plunge and got my 1st pair of shell cordovan. I have lived 5 minutes from the shoe mart for 8 years and just went there FINALLY for the 1st time.

 

They are black cap toe shell cordovan boots.

Wonderful tassels Uncle! The only ones I have seen came with the mid-tan antique edge.  I think I prefer yours.

Awesome!! :worship:  I like that your edge and welt are not too light... I'm assuming they are mid-tan antique, or is the pic under poor lighting??  Whatever the case, I love them; enjoy often and in great health my friend!

Welcome! Great boot. I am glad you live so close to TSM. If it were me I would just forfeit my cheque to Ed every two weeks!
