    Oops. Sorry I missed this earlier. That was the only pair of Aldens they had in stock. There were a few pairs of Common Projects Achilles lows, though, if you're into that sort of thing. I think one was black and the other was a dark grayish color (might have been suede). It's a fairly small shop but there are definitely some good discounts there.

    Thought I'd post a recent acquisition here as well. Plus I want to shamelessly plug my Color 8 Indy's that are now for sale in my sig...

    Recently lucked into a pair of Cigar Indy boots on the B&S forum. These are from a 2012 run at Alden DC. They seem a bit closer to Ravello than Cigar but I'm definitely not complaining! They came to me a bit banged up but a good bit of deer boning, Venetian, some Saphir brown cordovan cream and lots of brushing gave them a nice shine.

    Maybe the only reason I'd want small feet is to find more shoes like those...

    Stunning cigar Indys. Great find. Too bad I wear a 9D or I'd take your shell #8 Indy's off you! : )

    I took a flyer on the Cigar Indy Boots. They're a 9D which is TTS for me and as it turns out, they fit quite nicely.



    Thank you sir!

    subscribed. glad to see this thread. the Alden thread has way too much action and dress shoes to keep up with.

    i may have 3 pairs of vibergs but my 403s and natty innsbrucks are some of my faves!

    Thanks. They are Leather Soul x Alden Vintage Indy's. The oiled nubuck picks up a lot of dust, but for me this is a part of its charm.

    That's a light-ish Cigar, but it would be a really dark Ravello. I know one thing for sure though - those are beautiful!
