The listing originally said 10D (my size), but I was sure to check out the photos first and noticed the last photo clearly showed 10 1/2 D as the size.  I let the seller know.

Yeah that's me. They are 10.5. Just bought them here and decided against keeping em, mainly because the last is too sleek. They are awesome boots tho. Buy them here for cheaper.

990 - These are a C width even though they look wide in the photo.  

 

I like them!  Recently picked up the 9901 as well.

Yeah, but they're amazing. Symmetry is overrated.

In a thread full of OCD people stressing about dime-sized semi-discolorations, sir, I applaud you.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Ordered the scotch grain indy from unionmade. Somehow owning 4 shoes in the same model feels wrong, but so right.

^^I really want those scotch grain indy's. Very sweet.


Totally agree with Speekez and El Argentino, people obsess way too much about small inconsistencies in color, etc. Other than black shell, I believe the color differences are marks of authenticity and character. People ding Alden for poor quality, which I whole heartedly agree with (and have witnessed first-hand) when it comes to loose stitching and other complaints, but the color differences are inherent in shell.

Those look pretty nice but I think I'll resist.
I've got Indys in brown cxl, snuff suede, blue suede, black shell, #8 shell, whiskey shell, cigar shell, and standard cow.

Was very much kidding asking about that, but as El Argentino points out it sounds like a perfectly reasonable question in this thread. The boots look great without any question.

I don't feel as bad now, I don't have anywhere near as many.

I am afraid to get cordovan because I feel like they require more work to maintain. Maybe one day I will take the plunge.

You can do it.
Give in to the dark side.

I am shocked at your Indy collection.
