Does anyone know where I can find the Pitt boots online? Leather Soul is sold out and I'm guessing these are made exclusively for them. Other suggestions on a plain toe or cap toe boot are welcome. I'm new to Alden and am eager to buy my first pair.
The color on the J.Crew boot gets better with age. I actually owned it for a few days, but ended up returning it. Just wasn't for me. I don't think the Trubalance last is a great last for a plain-toed boot. I bought it along with the cap-toed boot that they also sell (the color #8 one), and I thought that was much sleeker. When a boot on the Barrie last is considered sleeker than something, that something is not so sleek! I think the last works very well for the Indy boot, but for plain toe I'd rather have a different one.
I'm with you on the crepe sole for the Roy boot. If it had anything else, it'd be a much more attractive option for me.
As a suggestion for cap-toed boots:
I love mine; it's a great looking boot that only gets better with age. Works great with dark wash or raw jeans, too.
