    Shoot Adam an email and he can pre-order your size. I put down a deposit for the antique edged version a couple weeks ago for their next run.

    Great! They look well loved.
    Is that a suede Michigan boot? Whose makeup are those?
    YES!

    I can understand the sentiment. Those Leffot tankers are some of my favorites and keeping the dark edge on the 53s is probably the right choice. I have a picture of some AF53s saved on my computer and the sunned patina on them is outrageously pretty.

    (not my picture [​IMG])


    This is a good point. The only thing is that with how dark color 8 have become its a bit more contrast than I want right now.

    Thanks for the heads up! TB is probably the most comfortable last for my stupid feet. I want something clean and shell and these fit the bill perfectly.

    So I'm thinking of picking up a color 8 Indy boot. I'm torn between double leather sole (bureau Belfast) or commando sole (Alden of caramel).What's everyone's opinion? Both have antique edge and on trubalance.
