    Yeah. it's the super-wide welt, that nefarious little up-turn on the toe, and the bloodclot red color. I really like mine

    I have always hated boots with a bulbous toe. Love Indys though, I just wish they'd use a different color of leather.

    The NYC Alden store sells Indy's in black for $25 more. I think I saw some tans out there, too...

    I just got a pair from Alden Shop -- I think they might be called Aviators or something -- but they are Indys in brown suede with a plain toe. Love them.

    I've got an unnatural Indy boot obsession.

    Leather Soul #8 Cordovan.
    They aren't as creased as they appear in the picture. That's an artifact of the flash.

    With stock calf ones.

    Very nice! All except the stock Indy looks unworn!

    The black cordovan ones actually are unworn.
    The rest get regular wear.
    I'll probably retire the suede ones for the rainy season (i.e. the next 6 months here in Seattle) though.

    zippyh... you seem to be the only other person I've run across with an equal obsession with the Indy boot... maybe you're actually more obsessed. I've posted most of these pictures in various threads around here, but here they are again:

    Your #8's have developed a gorgeous patina. I'm jealous...

    amlai, the tanning on those cordo indys is amazing. I wish I had those, as well as a job that would let them tan like that (and pay enough for me to afford them...)

    Thanks! I'm an office chair jockey, but I wear the boots as much as I can... and then I cheated a bit... I left them on my windowsill for a month or so. They had already started to change color before I started doing that, but leaving them on the windowsill made it more pronounced. Now I'm back to just wearing them like I was before.

    The cigar shell Indy is a great looking boot too.

    Save up and then buy things that you truly want, you'll save money on the long term...
