One advantage the 403 has over the ultimate is that heel that helps overpronators. I'm a flat footed overpronator so that would be amazing for me. Anyone really make good use of the special indy heel?

Agreed! I was never crazy about the 404 anyway.

My "ultimate" boot is the Ultimate Indy. I wish they made these a regular production boot. I love the commando sole.

I just picked up a pair of Snuff Suede boots from Alden San Fran. They have the double waterlock leather sole. Not sold on that sole for some reason. I can't put my finger on it. I plan on going to a local shoe store that sells Alden to compare the neo-cork soles to the double waterlock leather soles.

@walds11  that's the exact ultimate indy I was talking about. I'd have to wait till late 2015 to get it though!

Why till late 2015? That's a long time to wait! I just missed a pair for sale in my size in the marketplace frown.gif

After waiting 1.5 years for my TOJ jacket, 1 year is nothing... :lol:

 

I plan on really beating my boots to hell though. Going on adventures. It'll be a lot of walking on roads though. Maybe I'll just get a 403 and call it a day. My Iron Rangers w/ neocork soles handle everything but winter pretty well, though I've slushed it in the city plenty of times.

One thing to consider about my snuff suedes...I probably wouldn't want to wear those boots out in the elements anyway being that they are suede even after treating them with a suede spray.

I have a pair of Iron Rangers. They do take a beating, but don't handle winter very well.

Can you guys tell me the differences between the Leather Soul Ultimate Indy, the Epaulet Innsbruck Indy and the standard 403 in brown chromexcel? What I do know is this...

-the Ultimate and Innsbruck commando soles, the 403 neo-cork sole
-the Innsbruck brass eyelets, the Ultimate and 403 black eyelets

Am I Missing anything? Are the chromexcel leathers the same color? The Innsbruck appears to be a darker brown compared to the others. I wish the Ultimate and Innsbruck were regular production boots. I really like the commando sole.

Ravello LWBs yesterday (maiden voyage) with a Navy pinstripe suit. I know, I know, not "traditional", but...

"I'm out there Jerry! And I'm loving every minute of it!"

Has anyone gotten any of the Alden of Madison pre-orders from June fulfilled yet? It seems Alden SF, AoC and and Alden DC all have gotten their Ravello LWBs, but AoM is still lagging?

Mike made me feel like I had to throw down today, so here we go...

 

Also PSA:

JAB has trees for $7.50 free shipping.

This is as good as it gets for trees.

Do you guys go 1/2 size down with CXL compared to shell / leather? 

 

Cxl is more prone to stretching and runs a tad bigger than leather / shell in the same respective size?

I size depending on the last, not leather.

I actively seek out this heel. I'm a terribly flat footed fellow as well and the comfort that Indy boots/Trubalance boots w/Thomas heel give me is a God-send.

Awesome shoes.

BTW, the shoe racks are $10.50/free ship at JAB too.
You'll need the extenders to fit boots though.
