Heck, I'll go with whatever we can get off the ground, but the Kudu Indy is my favorite.
I'll take it in 986 style:
#8 or something else?
Does anyone own a pair of Indy's and another shoe style on the modified last? I was wondering if they fit more or less the same? I have a pair of wing tips (calf) on the modified last that I love, and I'm looking at getting the Indy 403's. Should I get the same exact size and width? Or is there a sleight difference in fit?
Tried a few yesterday and they fit and look great. I want longwings on shell, please add me to your list.
I bought one pair of calf NST shoes and one pair of suede boots (as posted previously). Both the same size. Both fit very nicely. An Indy boot on the Modified should fit the same too. Speaking of which, I'm still looking for people interested in doing a Kudu Indy on the Modified last.
^^ Like this?
An ML last version of this would be sweet!
Let's go for it!! Do we have enough people yet?
No, the response has been very weak. Three yeses, and two maybes . . . I did correspond with Raphael in reference. Moulded has seen very little interest in Kudu. Not enough to justify a production run. Unless we get twelve buyers, it'll be no joy on the Kudu Modified Indy.
Maybe we need a Kudu Appreciation thread.
^I don't want to throw any sand on this campfire, but I think I'm only interested if we can do a commando sole. I might also do the neoprene cork, but I don't think I'm in for leather.
I'm with you on that. The Commando sole is iffy. Alden doesn't like to do it on the Modified, but we won't know until the order is placed.
^^ Full commando with heavy lugs? Or recessed and barely visible up front? (as on the LS Kudu Indy above)? Would prefer the second option.
As on the Ultimate Indy, split sole.
Anyone jumping on these?
I have an old pair of these that I wear pretty often. They are Footbalance line construction, not fully leather-lined... have been resoled 3 times so far and are losing their mojo. Thinking about scooping these up but not 100% sure... Hoping to save up 2k Euro for a pair of custom in Vienna if I can swing a business trip to europe. These split toes are likely around $500+ retail.
