    Interesting that they are so different to mine which were purchased from Leffot. The edges on mine seem lighter and they are quite a different colour depth overall. This is a really versatile shoe IMO.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question. I am from Australia and want to order an Indy in Shell cordovan 8. I have looked at all the websites in the original post of this thread and none of them have it in stock.

    Would appreciate if somebody could please suggest a vendor.

    Hello CTYGGG,

    these # 8 PTB are No. 1 on my wishlist. Do you recommend buying same (Barrie) size as usual or do they run bigger due to the missing leather lining inside?
    Which retailer do offer these actually, please?

    cheerio

    I bought a pair (sized down from 9 1/2 to 9) and they seem large - I didn't factor the absence of a lining into the Alden sizing matrix. I'm going to give them another spin but I'm betting my pair will be available soon.

    BTW - I believe that these are a Leather Soul exclusive.

    Tassels also has them periodically (probably about $100 more expensive than Leather Soul given the shop is based in Hong Kong)

    Thanks. Nice choice & as always post up the pics.


    Depends on how the Barrie last fits your feet, but the lack of a liner does make the PTB fit different and sizing down may be your ticket. LS is definitely sold out & Tassels might be your best bet.

    I used the Neatsfoot oil to darken them up a bit. Also, the Plantation Crepe sole seems to effect the overall appearance. I don't know about yours, but mine are definitely scuff magnets. :)

    Just received my first Alden's from Unionmade today. These are the "Sloat" boots, and they were the last pair they had in stock. Went for a pretty good walk around Tokyo today, and I was very impressed with how comfortable they were.

    I'm a little unsure about the almost orange-ish trim. But I'm sure it will darken up with a little dirt and wear.

    the meltonian clear spray works very well. my marble indy's have 2 coats of it and there was zero discoloration.
