1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Can someone measure the height of the heel on their Indy boots. I am interested in the front of the heel, i.e. the bottom of the heel to the sole. Also the height of the back of the heel.

    My guess is LSBH. Tom said he had some blue suede coming up.

    Ha I keep almost buying shoes online, but I am going to wait until LSBH opens so I can see the shoes I want first hand before dropping the cash. Though I am buying the Winn Perry navy suede quoddys atm.

    quick question for you guys - does anyone have any experience with the alden crepe sole on icy sidewalks? I know nothing will save you from a complete sheet of ice, but I've had a lot of trouble wearing the Indy neoprene soles on icy and recently shoveled sidewalks in the winter and was wondering if crepe would be just as good as commando soles for that purpose. If anyone has the Roy boots or similar shoes and wore them in the winter, please comment. thanks!

    I've worn the plantation crepe, commando, and the indy soles many times on ice. With respect to traction I'd say the commandos are best, then the plantation crepes, and finally the indy soles. IMHO the plantation crepe soles are best in slush and snow though- the leather on the commando soles can get soaked.....

    FYI.

    DC Alden has started a list for a possible run of Whiskey LWB. Call them up if you want to be added to the list.

    What do you think they'd go for?

    They currently have some cigar lwb (not in my size though) and I think they were around $650, so it should be the same. Actually now that I think about it, they also had some plain toes in whiskey and they were around $650 as well.

    403 update:

    On week 15 since original order date with North River Outfitters. Requests for updates get a form letter at this point, so I contacted Alden directly. They confirm an estimated 18-week lead time at this point.

    I went a half-size down on my order based on what I thought was a general consensus as to fit, it's dismaying to see recent posts suggesting the Indy is TTS.

    +1. If you're a 9D usually, for instance (don't know what your actual size is), you should buy 8.5D in Trubalance. You're good.
