^ Is it fair to say this is a total Indy boot copycat?  (it is not made by Alden)

Throw me into that mix as well, I am continually puzzled at the "dry" shell reference to the visual representation of a plastic finish looking "wet"

I have a completely unfinished natural shell Fat Herbie from Ashland that is packed full of oil, but doesn't have a nice Acrilyc top coat so isnt quite as reflective....

It's definitely one of my favorite pick ups. Unique.

Been wearing them more than my natty CXL Indys.

Brutal day at work, but I got through it knowing that my Whiskey brothers were also out there in good form.

Latest Alden boot from Leffot - in Navy CXL. Just got these in recently after a 9 month wait (pre-order back in Oct. 2013). The comfort is outstanding, and as long as the crepe sole holds up, I am extremely happy with this pair. Especially love the brass hooks (4) and eyelets (5), along with the natural welt.

I think it's lame as shit that J Crew created an Indy knockoff

Yup.

We only think that (and would never buy one of those boots) because we're Aldie aficionados.  I actually don't blame J. Crew for piggy-backing off the popularity of the Indy boot.  Pretty savvy of them.

These turned out quite nice. I was wondering how they would work with denim.

I think it shows a complete lack of integrity. Have a shred of respect for Alden and their heritage instead of trying to make an extra $$ of that particular knockoff

One of the reasons I thought this was noteworthy to mention is that (obviously) J. Crew already sells Indy boots as well as many other Alden models.  I wonder if they ran their plans to sell the knockoffs past Alden before moving forward with them.

Those look SO good IC. Really makes me wish I had whiskey someplace other than just the liquor cabinet.

Thanks, CEE! I had to wait 2 years to acquire my first and only pair of Whiskey.

Hang in there, yours are out there (even if still attached to a horse).
