    Both are a plain-toe boot. The last one, the .gif, was a cap-toe boot. I'm not sure if Indy boots have ever been made in natural CXL. I personally have never seem them before. If you wear 405 Indy boots in 8D, that's the same size you should always buy for any boot made on the Trubalance last. Generally, the suggestion is to go to 1/2 size down from your true size for Barrie and Trubalance lasts. For more information on Alden's lasts, refer to this chart: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-lGSqPKHlV...600/Red+Clay+Soul+Alden+Sizing+Last+Chart.jpg

    ^^ Not sure if this is a misunderstanding, but natural CXL indy boots are quite common, no?

    Also, just for clarification, the second boot linked to above is on the modified last, but the sizing guidelines hold true: down a 1/2 size.

    Edit: Beaten to the punch. And I guess "captor X leffot" is "captoe x Leffot".

    Not sure how I've never noticed these before, as I frequent TSM's website quite often.

    The sizing is a guide only, best to try on. I have a van and barrie TTS and they fit perfectly. The Truebalance TTS on my feet are a little roomy, need a heavier sock, but feel fine. Prob should have sized down on the Indy, but it has a full vibram as well which exadurates the size of the sole v the others.

    The ravello Day Tripper boot has been sold out for a while. Leffot said they've put in an order with Alden for another run of these boots hopefully for this fall

    Anyone interested in a pair of 8.5D Alden 684s? I bought a pair from the NRO sale as an impulse buy and I'm looking to offload at-cost.

    i stopped at Unionmade SF this afternoon and saw their natural CXL "Sloat" boot:

    this is a REALLY nice boot in person, if one of you guys is thinking about getting a natural CXL boot, seriously consider. the neoprene/cork sole isn't visibly different from a leather sole. they're running out of sizes: they have 8.5 and 10.5, but nothing in between.
