Does anyone know what last the Indy in Cordovan Color #8 from North River Outfitters is? Is it the blobby Trubalance last? Or is it a Barrie? Anyone have an opinion on how versatile this shoe is?

20% off from NRO with code "MAKEOVER" so undecided at the moment!

Socks? Great looking combo!

I have the NRO #8 Indy boot and I'm pretty sure that it is on the Barrie.

The email from NRO about this coupon said Alden is excluded. Given their history I'd be even more hesitant to use it.

This is the main reason I've heard. That is, if the soles are stiff, they will not bend as much, which will create more wear on the toe portion of the sole. I've worn some AEs for the first time without much carpet wear, and definitely noticed some wear at the toes. So, I had taps put on, but now that they're broken in, it doesn't seem like the taps are getting much wear. This suggests that if I had just broken them in on carpet (or at least with minimal pavement exposure initially), taps would not have been necessary.

Thanks for confirming Zippy... really good price on it from NRO but since i spend 5 days a week in office wear i am probably better off getting something more dressy than the True balance last.

^^^I love my whiskey indy boot, and if I didn't have a closet full of shoes, I'd jump on them. It's on a double leather sole and dresses up much better than the traditional one. Also, the hand-stitched moc toe looks sick as hell. Think hard on it. This would be fine for the office if it will blend with your standard wardrobe. Probably not the best fit with incotex super slim pants and the like, but it you wear slim fit or regular fit, get them. You will like.

Thoughts on the color variation on this pair of firsts? Enough to warrant an email to the retailer or am I just being nit picky?

is the 3rd picture most representative? cigar lwb? they look great. I would keep them
post #33614 of 92386
In terms of versatility which would you have an Whiskey Indy or Cigar PTB? The more I keep looking at my Indy I find it too bulbous, I might just put this in the classified.

Any thoughts about buying from Frans Boone?

Anyone jumped on this and got a reply/otherwise?
