    I agree, I'm trying not to email him about these because I have the navy suede LWB from Leffot from last year, but these are beautiful. I assume they're on the barrie?


    Thanks man, appreciated. I guess you don't read MC Casual too much...lol. So Moo, make me second on your list! Those are beautiful Indy's.

    Are these on crepe soles? Do you have a picture looking at the side? Curious how the toebox looks.

    If I had a pair of Indy boots with the regular sole but wanted a commando sole instead, is there a cobbler in the NYC area or anywhere in the USA that could do that for me ?

    Anybody know where I could buy a pair of Indy 403 with a commando sole ?

    Thanks

    Look up B. Nelson in NYC. His shop is mentioned in this thread rather frequently. People have to gone to them for custom re-soling services.

    Two very different pair of Aldens

    Whiskey Indy from Alden DC - both of my cordovan boots are from Alden DC, service has been superb (extra shoelaces and a shoehorn included).

    I love the Footbalance heel + double waterlock sole combo here

    I'm gonna get some sunlight photos of these Indys soon...

    These are a bit more dandyish... Suede and patent leather saddles from Leffot

    On the CTA
    

    I just emailed B Nelson about this a couple weeks ago and they can do basically whatever you want. Double leather, Vibram, Dainite, etc.

    Has anyone noticed that The Shoe Mart is listing some makeups in #4 cordovan? They say they have to be shipped from the factory, but I don't think I've ever noticed these.

    Not that I would benefit. They start at a hulking 8.5. Can't figure out who wears such gargantuan shoes . . .
