    I think I've narrowed it down to these three pair since they all have the required commandos. Which do you think would be the best pick? will be wearing with jeans primarily.

    I'd go with either the top or bottom pair, I have the top pair and really like them. The cap toe boot is a little classier looking as opposed to the Indy, so that may factor in....

    I like the middle ones - I actually tried them on at Shoe Mart. One very sharp boot - a little narrow for me though, and they don't have speed hooks..

    Since you're mostly going to be wearing with jeans, I'd go with either the top or bottom. The eyelets are too dressy on the middle boots for jeans, and you don't need to worry about the speed hooks catching on the inside seem of your pants. If you would wear dress pants more often I'd go middle...they're nice.

    There's a good deal of items at Leffot that don't make it online -- mostly very high end or limited items. All of Steven's Aldens make it online eventually, it seems.

    Love the fold wallet. Picked one up on my last trip to NYC. I had Steven fold it for me, and he did it perfectly.

    Thanks to everyone for the advice and after mulling it over, I'm in the middle of day one of the Mac break-in method.
