They look like they could be Rogue Territory Dark Stanton's or RK ISC's, or Raleigh Indigo Canvas Thins. Whichever, they look great.

Anyways, saw this ebay listing and thought it quite hilarious. Listed as "Naturally Distressed Since 1999!" facepalm.gif

Those are cool. I wouldn't buy or wear shoes which were that used by someone else but they show how tough the Indy boots really are. Gives me great hope for my cigar indys.

I agree - it's hugely reassuring that they can take an infinite beating.

But so doing, and then trying to sell them under the tagline of "naturally distressed" ... is just... so...

Can B Nelson do this on brand new soles post restoration as well? Take a little longer, maybe a little costlier. But would be the best of both worlds.


yes, i believe they can.

Thank you, Seven. Going to call J.Gilbert if they have plaza boots size 10D, and if ships international.fistbump.gif

I've had bad experiences with J. Gilbert. They don't seem to want my money. I also haven't been too persistant in following up, but they haven't responded to emails nor let me know about orders when they said they would.

Has one one else rolled the dice with North River this weekend?  I put my credit card info in last Friday and submitted the order and now it says my order is "awaiting payment."  Did I do something wrong, or does someone there have to process it?  I guess I'll try contacting them... eh.gif

Picked up a pair kudu PTBs on commando soles on ebay last week....I believe from a fellow SF member....exactly what I was looking for in a casual shoe that I can wear without worrying about the elements.

I just checked my CC, and the charge hasn't appeared yet, which may or may not mean anything.  Did you order one of the "limited edition" pairs that they expect to deliver in March? 

 

Please let us know what you learn if/when you contact them.

My experiences with JGilbert have been quite different. The service has always been prompt and courteous. And dealing with Yenni and Miller has been nothing but pleasant.

I sent them an email once, nobody ever responded.

Leffot's Natty CXL longwings. I like these for the spring and summer.
