    good year welt refers to the inner mechanics of the shoe...etc.
    i think you are referring to the reverse storm welt that is left off of this model.

    Correct, I was referring to the reverse welt. I knew what I meant in my head, haha. It also goes by the reverse goodyear welt as well.

    I got the Unionmade Loden Indy in a 9D and while it is a really beautiful make-up, unfortunately they seem to fit a bit smaller (especially narrower) than any Trubalance lasted boots I have tried or owned. You can tell just by looking at them from the outside because the Moc-toe stitching is narrower compared to other Indys. Sadly, they will have to be returned.....Or if there are any forum members who missed out on the 9D and think they can fit into a slightly narrower-than-usual 9D T.B. shoe, I could possibly sell them for what I paid for them: 550$, new in the box including shipping (and sales tax since bought in CA). They'd probably be fine for most in that size/last, but I have some issues like bunions that make sizing a bit trickier than normal. Feel free to PM me, but I am going to probably send them back tomorrow or Saturday.

    Luckily, I also picked up the Unionmade Sloat Plain Toe Natural CXL Indys and they are absolutely stellar.

    Where did you get these from? If they are the J.Crew captoes, talk to them. Same thing happened to me and they overnighted me another pair.

    These are killer...I already have Cigar Longwings with antique edge-trim...wonder if they overlap too much? Any thoughts?

    The oiled-waterloc soles could warrant owning both perhaps as they can be worn on damp grounds while the Cigar double-leather sole can't (or shouldn't)....Can anyone recall there ever being a Shell LWB with waterloc soles made up before? Seems unusual.

    Methinks when dealing with J. Crew that Alden is adhering to the "just get them out the door and we'll deal with any problems later" philosophy. I wonder what kind of agreement they have with J. Crew in terms of who picks up the tab on return/repair costs.

    The Epaulet #8 makeup has a light sole while the Unionmade and Leffot #8 makeups have an antique sole. Are these different names for the same sole color?

    Has anybody been to Leather Soul today for the trunk show? Wondering what surprises they may have had.
