Captoe boot would be nice, I'm just anxious since my wingtip boot preorder isn't fulfilled yet. I feel like it's gotta be #1 on their Ravello queue by now.

Looking great in your gunboats.  If they were an anniversary present, you better do something extra-special for your wife! Congrats on your wedding celebration; whiskey is an appropriate wear for the occasion...  all the best my friend!

Seriously, someone just let me know when this happens.  I NEED this.

To the folks with chromexcel or kudu boots...I mine all day while walking in unrelenting rain and got them nice and soaked. Do you guys stuff them with paper towels/newspaper overnight or just go straight to shoes trees (unfinished cedar) to dry them out?

I stuffed mine with newspaper for 24 hours and laid them on their side. I also kept them away from any direct source of heat and they looked great after doing the Mac method on them the following day. The leather soles still look good, too. Thankfully Alden's leather defender will be here soon because I can't bear putting sno seal or any discoloring weatherproofer on them unless they're already black.

Thank you. Is Alden Leather Defender recommended for kudu as well?

What's the absolute cheapest place to get #8 gunboats? I remember somewhere people talking about a shop that didn't have an online presence that sold them at less than the standard 660ish.

Kudu is tough stuff.  I don't take any special measures.  With CXL, I let them air our over night and then put in the shoe trees.

For those of you with Indy boots, did yours come with the cloth shoe bags or not? When I got mine from needsupply the came packaged in plastic bags but there were no cloth shoe bags in the box. This isn't really a deal breaker for me, just curious if I'm the only one that has experienced this

They don't come with them.

Sort of a weird picture, is that in an outhouse?

I believe they aged the boots with a belt sander.
