    The J. Crew looks like the Leather Soul with the standard sole.

    Someone from leathersoul should clarify this, because if Jcrew just poached their market... those guys were already complaining about people replicating their exclusive models.

    happy hooligan, Thank you for posting the pics. I have been going back and forth between the Vintage Indy and the Ultimate Indy for a long time. I think I will be very happy with my Ultimate Indy Pre-order. [​IMG]

    'Who is "Cecilia", Alex?' What's the deal? This boot has been available for years, and now people are tripping over themselves to kop just because jcrew is stocking them?
    +1 I guess the leather and lining differences go some way to explaining the price differential, but to me it's still not a value proposition. I think the ultimate indy is a better deal.

    Tom from leathersoul also isn't a douche, and thinks of his own ideas.

    That's pretty priceless.

    I don't see these online. Which J Crew carry them?

    Also, is there a discount code that could bring the price down?

    I don't see these being put on the website... but I could be wrong. I'd try to use the red phone to call and order them and then use the studen 15% if you can.

    Or just buy the original from Leather Soul.

    I got mine at the Liquor Store in TriBeCa. They are not on the website. I assume you could call the Liquor Store and order them.

    Student discount is 15%. That's what I used.

    I called and they said that only two stores currently carry them, both stores are in NY. They said that it will be in the JCrew catalog for the winter so there is a chance for a wider release, however, they said that they will only probably get them in "D" sizes, no other widths. They said you can also order over the phone and just return them without a problem if it does not fit.
