    I have 11D cordo tankers on Barrie that fit fine, had 11D Indys on Trubalance that were too small. Everybody seems to say it's the opposite but not in my experience. Maybe that is a cordo vs. non-cordo thing? I don't know.

    The 11D has too much girth for me, my heels were falling out. Interestingly, the 11.5C fits OK.

    I think you can get away with more space in a boot like the Indy because you can cinch it up around the ankle. So you don't notice the heel space as much (the boot moves with your foot). In a derby, you don't have that advantage.



    You've got me on this one. I would also suggest that there is some variation from shoe to shoe (i.e. quality control issues). There may be a pair of lasts that are smaller than usual.

    Not bad, but the look is a bit too aggressive for me, given the contrast stitching (laces are an easy fix).... guess I could probably just darken them myself - but then I mine as well just buy the regular kudu indy for less money

    It comes with standard laces as well. The 404 was too understated for me. The contrast toe stitching and sole caught my eye giving the boot more visual weight.

    I think the first boots can easily be worn with an odd jacket and trousers. I don't think they are good for a suit.
