My long delayed boots have finally arrived. Some may recall my unsatisfactory Ebay purchase of some brown CXL Indy boots, the Leffot make up. Brown CXL, commando, brass hooks and eyes with 270 welt. The seller just cancelled the sale even though I paid full asking price. :censored:

Fortunately Adam at AoC had a very similar version with a 360 welt that I ordered last September and they arrived today. I should have them within the week. The "Long National nightmare is over." Yes they "are just an Indy" but I wanted the brass and commando which was not available in the stock versions that were available to a EEE guy like me. This is my happy face. :)

Just when I assumed I'd be done acquiring new Aldens for the near future after receiving two pairs this week alone, a third pair I couldn't in the right mind pass up is inbound. Going to be a really expensive shoe month
Out with it. What's on the way?

Brass + Commando = WIN And I prefer the 360 welt as well. My favorite part of that makeup is the contrast in the edge. Well done.
PS: Weasel points to you for my recent pickup AoC-48.

I only recently discovered Alden's tan grain. Very nice, congrats.
