Placed the order for these from Frans Boone on Tuesday and received them two days later. No customs charges--the box was marked as U.S. goods. No complaints here, only praise.

Sorry about the indoor lighting, but I'm not usually home when the sun is out. smile.gif

I recently picked up an 11 and 11.5 (thanks to another SF member) and am having a tough time deciding which one to keep.

i didn't find that the suede stretched much, but because it's it unlined it is more forgiving.

I have one indy - on the TruB last in black shell. I like it, but, I probably wouldn't consider another indy unless it was the ravello indy (or whatever you wish to call it) from Frans Boone on the Plaza. Great boot!!

Some would argue the 403 and 405 belong on a construction site and nowhere else.

Can't believe I'm dissing the plaza, but yes.

100% disagree. I like the shape.

Nice boots, and great service.

Shape for calling it an Indy only.

Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful, worthy-of-envy boot.

Don't those all predate the existence of the US?

Is the Trubalance in "D" width a naturally wide width?

 


I have 12.5 length, pronated feet and wear a 13E in Allen Edmonds Strands/Park Ave last. Would a 12D Trubalance fit me?

I'm going to guess a 13D would suit you. The AE Strand is on the 5-65 last which I need a 7E on. i've tried a 7.5D on the trubalance before, fit comfortably width wise but just a little long.

Gorgeous. Enjoy them

The plaza lasted Indy makes the boot very sleek, which I guess some people see as the opposite of the Indy aesthetic. To me they are kind of rugged but handsome boots to be worn with denim or chinos (I won't call them "work boots" because dudes aren't constructing buildings or in a factory in their $750 cordovan Indy boots). IMO the ravello Indy just looks like a sleek NST boot without the split toe stitch (which is a great boot, just kind of odd for an Indy).. Indy boots (whatever the leather) look more appealing to me in the Trubalance last (I even think the Barrie versions look a bit too narrow sometimes). The best Indy I have seen is the cigar version on commando soles, followed by the 404/403/natty versions and then the whiskey versions. I don't recall ever seeing a ravello Indy on Trublanace (same thing with a whiskey wingtip boot, I don't think it has ever been made).

The tanker boot is a happy medium (rugged but somewhat sleeker than an Indy due to the Barrie last and split toe stitching)
