Nice LWBs in cigar! You have tremendous restraint. I had mine laced and on my feet before the UPS guy was back on his truck.

Been wanting these really bad for awhile think I need to pull the trigger soon, what size are they? They look wide for some reason.

Good for you! The plaza last is my favorite for fit and the one you ordered looks great!

I wear a 6.5E in the Barrie, so that's why they look wide. Also my picture-taking skills are known to suck. In real life they look fine IMHO.

I was thinking to wait it out for a ravello or whiskey longwing, but with my shoe size, I gotta grab whatever I can.

Thanks for this tip, it helped a lot. There's still a line where the scratch is but it's not nearly as noticeable.

as i mostly wear desert boots, which are very unstructured, i figured there'd be some adjustment period for my feet going to the fairly rigid indy's, but i've probably worn them a dozen times or so which should be sufficient.

i read how comfy everyone says their indy's are. i dunno, maybe these just aren't for me, as much as i love the looks.

I've been having this exact same problem except on my right foot. It's a hard bruising feeling. I think it's from the heel being too tight. I tried not lacing it all the way up on that side but it didn't help. I'm also noticing that my little toe is starting to rub on that foot as well. I've decided that I ended up sizing a half size small. It's frustrating because I spent a good amount of time trying them on and making sure I had the right size. Even worse is that I bought cordovan indys after thinking I had my size all dialed in. I'm probably going to end up posting everything in B&S. I'm a 9.5D and thinking a 10D is what I need. The fact that you went up a size and it didn't work is not encouraging though. After all this, I measured a brannock device as 10.5D so I guess I've just been buying most of my shoes too snug. You might want to try an E size which would have a bigger heel cup and might fit better. Good luck.

I'll be visiting Honolulu at the beginning of January Tom, and was wondering if you'd have any Indy or Tanker boots in stock in cordovan? I'll definitely be popping in the shop.

Tanker might be nice. Any idea on when you expect them?

Now these sound interesting in dark brown suede. When do you think these will hit your website?

Thanks for posting pics...love the cigar color. I'm trying to decide between several styles; the Cigar Longwings, Whiskey Plain Toe Bulcher, Whiskey Chukka boot or the Black Cordovan Medallion Toe Oxford.

Good choices all, but my vote would be the cigar longwings. If you can find them in your size, snatch them up. You won't be disappointed.
