    It's true that there are no refunds on pre-orders, but otherwise you're golden.
    Good, because these just arrived, and Im not really feeling them. I think I may return them. I need a classic black dress shoe for interview/funeral type situations that can I can also wear with jeans and less formal stuff. I dont think these feel right for that purpose. I like my 966 brown Alden wingtips, I may get a pair of 967 black wingtips for this purpose. Thoughts? http://www.blackbirdballard.com/Alde...hoe_15082.html [​IMG]

    i have no idea why they are marking their shoes up so much. then again they are one of the few stores that continue to have insane profits year after year.

    Figured I would throw up some pictures of the other special makeups that Blackbird is doing. They have these really intricate back stories for each model, pretty cool makeups in general.
    I like this first pair a lot by the way, sole is hot:

    Which smartwool socks do you like....so many to choose from.... https://www.smartwool.com/default.cfm#/Mens/Socks/
    I know it's a vague answer but, it depends on what you're going for. I do long distance backpacking, so I own everything from their thickest performance weight down to their standard black heathered ones. I suggest going to somewhere that carries them near you and see which you like best.

    Seriously? It's a sock. They look fine, and they're incredibly comfortable.

    @Jake8078...
    Did you get the new model 405, if so where? I just bought the Indy 405 Chrome Excel from Shoemart but there was a price increase to $450. I'm wondering if you paid for the older version but got the higher quality. Please post pics if you can...


    As promised. ~$310 out the door.
