    If I had to choose 2 to sell, I'd probably sell the color 8 wingtips and cxl Indy's.

    The Cigar Indy's from leffot are my favorite Indy(I was lucky enough to snag a pair) and the choco tankers are stellar(on my want list).

    If you have to sell 2, I'd part with the CXL Indy & Tanker.

    Great line up. I would keep them all.

    On a whim I checked to see what TSM had available in 9.5 eee. They had one pair of
    Color 8 shell Indys in stock! So
    I ordered them! I'm really excited for
    My first pair of shell shoes! Only tough part is I have to wait 3 weeks to try them on! My fiancé and I Eloped to Maui. It will be a nice treat to go home to because leaving Maui is always super depressing.

    UNFORTUNATE PSA FROM FELLOW MEMBER BURNTPOCKETS!!!!!!!!


    I WAS following the cigar indy auction until I read this a couple of minutes ago. beware, this seller is a crook. i asked the seller for the style number earlier in the week and received numbers that don't match.
    needless to say, i will not be bidding.

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/502722/...y-scam-alden-x-j-crew-cordovan-pct-boot/0_100

    thanks @BurntPockets for saving me a fraud claim and a huge headache.

    I was following that listing just for shits and giggs. That sucks. What a lousy human being. Too bad there's no way to inform prospective bidders.

    I would say it depends on what other shoes you have that aren't boots. If you have wingtip shoes then the wingtip boots become less of a necessity, if you have split toe shoes then the tanker becomes less of a necessity.

    Just from the information you gave I'd say sell the CXL indys and keep the rest (since you have cigar indy's already).

    keep!

    my boot selling hierarchy. sell the:


    • poorest fit
    • least worn
    • easiest to replace
    • redundant

    Thanks for the heads up. I was seriously considering bidding as I love those boots and missed the boat.:facepalm: Anyone know of a similar make-up that's still being made? Leffot Naval boot is the closest I've seen, I think (though I'd love a commando sole, since I live in the land of nearly perpetual snow and slush).

    Thanks DV! Mine might be ever so slightly snug, but no different than my shell WT boots. And these do give more than those.

    Agree with Namor's hierarchy for consideration to sell. I have a pair of cigar NSTs that I wish to sell because I've discovered they are slightly tight fitting for me. Need to coach myself on selling on ebay since I've never done it in the past.

    Cheers!

    @Rishi Kakar What size? I'm sure you'd have a lot of potential buyers here... [​IMG]

    I would keep the #8 wingtip and the Choco Tanker, personally.
