    Love the sarcasm..... I guess I should take it as there is nothing wrong with them so shut the fuck up and wear them... :)

    How is the grant last in comparison to trubalance.

    Nice. I had to give up on the Barrie last for shell shoes ... it tore my heel up to the point where I literally could not walk in dress shoes for over a month

    Why is that? Are you sure you had the right fit?

    No, they are old school. I believe they share some inventory with Alden SF (Alden SF and DC are actually owned by Alden)

    Does anyone know where I can find an Indy boot in tan suede? The Bureau has one, but it's on a strange crepe sole and sold out in my size. Does anyone else offer one?

    Yes, I sized down a 1/2 and they were a great fit.

    Just the heel counter - the shell was too stiff and the shape of the last just put too much pressure on my heel which caused a growth that quickly put my feet out of commission for at least a month

    Well after almost a week's wait, the shell Indy's arrived straight from the Middleboro factory today...wish my camera could catch the brilliant #8 color

    Do you all think they are appropriate for this style of dress? This type of trouser and shirt/sweater combo is what I typically wear in the office (no tie, no jacket on most days).

    Guess this may be a question for MC forum...
