Sounds like a variation on the Foss Tugger if you're going with the wedge sole...

Not exactly what you want, but the Union Made x Alden Workboots are close.

Personally, I think that a natty chromexcel cap toe boot on crepe sole would be a sharp lookin' all-arounder.

I've got a question on the fit of Roys vs Indys and need some Alden expert help.

I'm usually a US 11/EU 43 or 44 and I like a slight bit of room in my shoes. I wanted to pick up the Roy in a 10.5D because I figured that would be my ideal size, but I went to an Alden store and fit the 10D Indy perfectly because of the large toe box on the Indy. Does the Indy fit slightly larger than the Roy? I know they're made on the same last, so I'm a little unsure about pulling the trigger on a 10.5D Roy even though the Alden salesmen told me I'm basically between sizes and could go either way. Anyone have experience with both that could chime in?

Thanks a lot!

Do you guys follow the same procedure to polish chromexcel leather as you would with shell shoes? If so, what polish should I use on my Ultimate Indy's?

I slapped some brown wax on my chromexcel Indies to even them out and make them a little more waterproof -- and to cover that garish white stitching -- and now all I do is buff them with a horse hair brush when they get scuffed. Works great and the finish has an impressive depth and glow.

What do you think? Any takers? I havent seen a boot quite that rugged from ALden

it sounds similar to these Viberg boots I've seen on the net



which some variation of it may look awesome IMO

That wedge sole looks like something you're gonna look at in 6 months and wonder wtf you were thinking

6 months, that long?

I'm with Harry - those boots look like the kind of thing that would get you beat up as a kid. Not that I have issues about that
post #8893 of 87353
those Viberg boots are pretty loud, but not so far off from some of the Alden offerings on Arknets. Well I like them, but not nearly enough to go hunt down a pair.

can you wear alden indy's as snow/rain boots?
post #8895 of 87353
Anything with a smooth sole is really bad on ice
