Mine are three years old and probably my most-worn boot, and I can probably get another year out of them easy, but they are getting quite noticeably worn at this point.Just a question, but has anyone here worn through a pair of 405's soles??? I have a couple pair that are years old and the soles look almost new.
My rotation is too big....maybe I should just sell off most of it and actually wear the remaining to their demise...Mine are three years old and probably my most-worn boot, and I can probably get another year out of them easy, but they are getting quite noticeably worn at this point.
I would argue strongly against a 360 welt. One of the reasons for the superior fit of 405s is the combo of 270 welt and Thomas heel. If this shoe fits well, don’t touch it.Just ordered a pair of Indy 405 boots that I've wanted for the past 3.5+ and finally just pulled the trigger.
I am debating just immediately sending them off to Bedo's Leatherworks to have Steve convert them to a 360 degree welt and replace the fiberboard heels with stacked leather. Such a great boot that could be so much better if Alden just tried a little harder
