Yes, “Dr. Jones” is the affectionate term for the color 8 plaza Indy specifically. It’s not just a synonym for “Indy” boot.
As the originator of the Dr. Jones title several years back talking about my pair in Color 8, it was intended to differentiate the more casual, Trubalance based Indy Boot, from the more refined, Plaza based U-Tip Boot. I took some slack for calling my pair Indy’s and was told to come up with a better term. At the time, the Frans Boone version was the only one available and it was just in King and Ravello. Thus I would say that the term Dr. Jones is applicable to a U-Tip Boot made around the Plaza Last regardless of shade. That said, it is not intended to by synonymous with the Indy term.
