    The 403/405s are usually the gateway to more Aldens. The flood gates will soon open. lol

    Congrats on the 403s Jose Chang!
    Definitely addicting. From one of my prior posts on the Alden thread, my addicted self is now purchasing multiple pairs of cigar shell Indys!

    You guys were right. Ordered a pair of 405 Indy's a couple days ago. Have a feeling I'm not done.

    Any leads on a store which would stock brown suede Indys? Similar to those made-up by LeatherSoul...

    Unique make-ups like that are usually store specific, but here's a few places where you can find some unique indy's:

    1. Alden of San Francisco = I think they have a snuff suede Indy last time I was in.

    Enjoying my newly acquired 405s which are also my first Aldens.

    Question is what leather care product to use on them? I have Obenaufs LP, Saphir Renovateur and Venetian Shoe Cream on hand.

    Also, I noticed that the boots are lined. Is there any specific leather care product for the lining?

    Had Used VSC and Saphir Reno on my 405s. I can't tell the difference from them, both are good. But I prefer VSC because it's cheaper.

    I would NOT use LP, as it will seriously dull the finish. Reno and VSC are both fine. Don't worry about the lining. Use shoe trees. Don't wear them everyday.

    I've got several Indy boots in non-exotic hide. Kudu and CXL.
    Landed my first shell Indy off eBay and they arrived today.
