    What, no love for the Indy Shell boot in #8?

    NRO has them in stock, brand new shipment in a full size run. Got lucky on mine just happened to place the order when Alden was boxing them up at the factory

    I think the last is called M58 or some such. It's a bit sleeker than the Barrie.


    Which leads me to a question. How does that work with third party cobblers when re-soling Aldens? How do they match the soles that they have to the shoe if they don't have the exact part number from Alden, etc. ?

    Thanks. What if it has antique edging or black edging for that matter? Does the cobbler sand/re-create the edging manually?

    Yes it does, thanks.

    Where can I see the Darlton online? I'm having trouble locating.

    In case you're wondering how the Marlow/Darlton compares. Click to embiggen.

    My old pair next to a brand new pair. Flash washes it out but you get the relative difference.

    Looks quite nice. So where can these be purchased? They seem like vapor in that they are not really for sale anywhere?

    Not that it matters much, but what kind of sole is on those NRO Shell Indys? Wicked boots and I just got a nice little check from Uncle Sam...
