The better question is -- where the hell is Uncle Mac in all his photos?  Is he on a cobblestoned street somewhere along the Paris-Roubaix route?  
If so, the caption should read: "Ravello LWB, Argyles OTC, Roubaix UTF"

I remember thinking that too.

I bought these and ended up returning them. I was already iffy on the aesthetics of the red micro sole, but the clincher was I just didn't like the way it felt underfoot.
I like Indy's because they feel sturdy. This sole felt squishy and just didn't work. On a lightweight shoe like a Buck, sure, but it's just not suited to a boot, IMO

I was looking into having someone proxy those for me. Glad I didn't - not in love with them after seeing them (I had only seen them in a JCrew advertisement).

I would like that color suede on a standard Indy sole.

ok, I've heard back. They said they would like to make another run of the Blackbird milkman's, but Alden is not manufacturing for small businesses right now just larger ones. Really disappointing

 

as for the suede indy, yuck, i don't support anything jcrew

Anyone know where to get the replacement heel for my lwb (quabaug or catpaws or any recommendation)?
and the heel replacement sole for my indy too?

I love J Crew's unlined tan suede ptb with metal eyelets, and some of their other Alden offerings (color 8 perforated captoe, the tobacco longwing, their snuff suede boot on crepe) are pretty good too, but I can't get behind this suede Indy. In general I think red soles have been overused recently.

that sounds like BS to me...Context only offers a couple of makeups and they're still placing orders. Does Blackbird even carry Alden anymore?

Unionmade's snuff Indy on red soles and Leffot's navy Indy on red soles both work, the J Crew doesn't IMO because the suede color clashes too much with the sole

In general, as Aldem's popularity increases, retailers are offering new leather / sole combos... They won't necessarily be universally appealing, but many will like them... The "milkshake" / "marble" suede Indys were a great success

Alden for J Crew is the same, you just lose a bit of street cred.
I don't like the indy boots either... generally consider suede to not be my thing.
Coming from a guy who like at least some of McNairy's offerings, which are often made by Sanders in the UK and make generally decent pairs.
