Hey all. First time poster.
I'm finally ready to do the deed and get my first pair of Aldens. Some variation of the Indy boot.
Thing is, I live in the Northeast, and am really learning toward the commando sole. Leffot has the 405C, which features the commando sole and is available in my size, but I'm really learning toward the darker CXE leather. So I've emailed Leather Soul to inquire about the Ultimate Indy in my size (10.5 D, I believe).
The best boot I've seen yet though is Epaulet's Innsbruck Indy, which seem unavailable at the moment. Would anyone more familiar with this than myself be willing to comment on their availability a) for sale here, on eBay, etc. or b) being re-run by Alden. Love the brass with the CXE leather.
The third option I guess would be to order the standard Indy 403 and have them resoled? Would it be possible through Alden (or a similar avenue) to have the brass added?
Thanks very much in advance -- I appreciate any help anyone's will to lend!
