    "Thor" boot. It's an MTO, which is now closed.

    Google "MTO Boot Via Alden DC" and you should be able to find the thread.

    Actually, it is the Mora, not the Neumora. AE no longer produces the Mora, and it is on a different last, so I think this is just a large "custom" order (hence the premium).

    Hahaha I read your quote of what I said and I went back because I was sure I typed "nice shoes", but I didn't.

    Yup, their almost black after 22 years of no shoes. [​IMG]

    Guys I have a question. I am getting my first pair of nice boots. I want something that is versatile (can be worn with denim, chino's, slacks). I was thinking about these for my first purchase. Would this be a good first pair or would you guys recommend something else? Also is this color pretty easy to wear? I wear mostly stuff from epaulet.

    Some would say 12 with the grant last... never hurts to be a bit big with boots (thicker socks).

    one would be hard-pressed to find a better choice for you.

    I find them to be TTS (I have them).

    I am TTS 9.5D
    I have this boot in 9.5D.
    Frankly, I would go to 10D before I would go to 9D.

    It never hurts to order two sizes and send one back. :nodding:

    Would 36" laces be long enough for the indy?
