I'd been throwing around buying the cigar indys from fransboone, but couldnt come to terms with crepe sole. glad I waited, as these are exactly what I wanted

You scoundrel!  They say lighting never strikes twice.  Not only is that scientifically incorrect, but also metaphorically.  In your case, you snagged these and the Ravello LWBs a few weeks back.

 

Would you be able to choose between the two?  Hypothetically?

cant say I could pick, too much variation.

 

will say that I am more a fan of the jcrew LWB shade than the ones I got. still happy to have them, but like the redder tones

Well said. Also, excellent photo, as usual. You and DonL have mastered the birds eye image. Always looks perfect.

only a late afternoon pic the day they arrived (and the pic earlier today from their first wear)

at first, they appeared super dark. already after one day out today, I'm seeing the brownish olive coming through.

I'd amend this to a 1/4 inch extra in length.  Still, anyone?

 

If the "fit feels good", I wouldn't worry about the length of the them compared to your other shoes.  I have many pairs of boots that I feel fit me perfectly but they vary quite a bit in actual length.  If they feel good on your feet, they are fine.

 

Does @BLAUGRANA  mean that you are a Barca fan?  Big Clasico this weekend.  Went to a Barca game at the Camp Nou last year.  Incredible!

KWL, I am even more freaking jealous of your growing shell collection than usual. Your new cigar Indy's were an awesome score. Congrats.

not sure to be honest. grabbed those two pair from LS that caught my interest.. figured if I didn't care for either pair down the road, I'd just flip them at the same price. 

 

at the time I placed my order, I think the only 11.5/12 pair left that I didnt go after were the slip on chukkas
