This is a reply to an old post, but something that I think I differ from many others on, so worth posting. I buy Indy's TTS lengthwise, but in a C width (I would say I have normal width feet and generally wear a D, or medium, width). I don't really find Trubalance to be a "long" last though at all, so I don't always understand people saying you should go a half or full size down.Anybody here buy their Indys true to size?
Hello! I definetely agree with sizing down a full size, in my case at least. Had to buy 3 pairs of Indy's to find the perfect one.^Ive seen a lot of them look like this. I suspect it has something to do with the shoe being too big and creasing at multiple points when walking. I sized one down from Brannock and still find them quite comfortable, instead of the half that is commonly recommended.
Hello, I think that the gentlemen in the Alden thread (https://www.styleforum.net/threads/the-official-alden-thread-for-2020-share-reviews-sizing-advice-and-photos.655638/page-808#post-10526544) will appreciate (a lot) if you share this post with them.Merry Christmas everyone! I bring you a photo I stumbled onto of one of Harrison Ford's original Indy boots used in the films. In a time when people own dozens of shoes and boots, all of which get little serious wear, it's nice to see a boot get well worn. There's plenty of stories and experience in boots like these...

Bumping an older thread here, but the subject of material influencing the fit of an Indy boot is of interest to me.The reason I ask is because I had a pair of 403 and currently have a pair of 405. The 403 CXL fit was originally ideal, but over a short time the eyelets ended up to where they were almost touching--enough that the boots felt too large and I had to sell them. The 405 appear to be keeping close to their original structure and still fit well. I recall a YouTube vid of an owner who had a similar experience, although he could still wear his 403 boots.
I'm interested in a pair of 404 boots, but not if they're going to stretch out like the 403 CXL leather did.
