Thinking about pulling the trigger on Sunday.

Funny I am looking at those too. I really want the Roy boot but it doesn't come in black so I found the Plain Toe Flex Boot II which does come in black. Different leather and different sole. I would love to see some pics if anyone has some.

Leydon last vs Barrie last? I guess there is no real way to tell except to try them on huh? So confusing. I never realized that there were standardized fits to shoes.

Ok last question. On the topic of soles, Commando vs. Leather vs. Crepe. Any thoughts?
post #919 of 86561
I've heard leydon referred to as a "smaller barrie", not as high volume as the barrie, but similar shape. Usually leydon is TTS and Barrie is down 1/2 size. Best way is to try them on. Those soles all serve different purposes. Commando has more traction than the crepe but the crepe is more comfortable, so I've heard. Leather will look sleeker but really shouldn't be worn in wet weather.

Leydon is like the Barrie, but with less toe room.

Had my ultimate indys for less than 10 wears, already had to do one stitching repair, and now the other shoe is having a similar problem. Only costs 12$ to fix each, but not very impressed given the reputation the co. has for quality construction.

The indy boots also have a lesser known reputation for having the apron stitching coming undone. I fixed mine by hand with a regular needle and thread.

I hadn't heard of that. Hopefully repairs hold and no more issues of this sort, I actually want to wear them fairly hard. Not "I'm going to Alexandretta to find the canyon of the crescent moon" hard, but hard enough that they acquire a lived-in appearance.

I've been wearing mine pretty hard, what is the problem you are having? Is it the stitching around the toe coming loose? Is it cosmetic or is stitching that actually secures leather coming loose?

I've been wearing my Ultimate's for a while too...

No problems with mine... and boy do they look better every time I wear them too!

Thanks Tom!

See below. Happened on the outside side of one shoe and the inside of the other. Just the first half dozen stitches, I fixed them before they got very far.
