    the pair I handled in the Ludlow shop in NYC was on double-waterlock.

    They are really nice in person.

    edit: wait a tick, you own these and are asking us what kind of soles they're on??

    You have the shoes and don't know what kind of sole it is?
    That's pretty clearly a double leather sole but the description says single oiled sole.
    Funny, I got the snuff suede/single waterlock sole combo from Epaulet a while ago although on Leydon.

    J Crew is getting worse with regards to their descriptions and pictures not matching.
    I ordered these a couple days ago.

    They've been pulled from jcrew.com hence the link to the cached page.

    I ordered based on the pictures and didn't really read the description that closely other than seeing Trubalance so I knew what size to order.
    However reading the description closer and seeing the below makes me wonder wtf I'm going to receive. I emailed customer service and they said the pictures and description are correct.

    Odd, I e-mailed customer service & they said the pictures online were correct, but the description wasn't.

    Got an email from their personal shopper. Supposedly, the pictures are incorrect and they are re-shooting the humus indy photos. I asked if the nst was going to be available as well and he said not that he was aware of.

    I'm hoping the pics were correct.
    Oh well. I guess I'll find out in a few days.

    Thanks for reaching out regarding the Limited-edition Alden[​IMG] for J.Crew Indy Boots in Suede. The picture that was shown for these boots is the correct picture. The description of this item is also correct. I would describe the color of these shoes as a camel color. The sole of this shoe is as it is started in the description. The sole is rubber.
