    Hello Gents,

    Maiden voyage of #8 Indy on the Plaza, courtesy of Frans Boone. Bought these back in July. Excellent customer service, and guess I was lucky I had no import duties/taxes.

    I tried this a few days ago and got no responses. So I'll give it another whirl...

    Anyone own the black shell nst on the aberdeen (model 2211)? If so, what do you find yourself wearing them with mostly (dress, casual, both; jeans, wool trousers, etc.)?

    I have numerous shell models in all colors so I am not looking for comments like "get the cigar nst instead". (I actually have it anyhow :nodding:)

    Thanks.

    I feel like such a tool, here I was thinking somebody bought the last pair of Ravello Indy's from Frans Boone, turns out Frans and Heidi took it off because they were holding it for me. I told them I couldn't afford them until the 7th... Once they confirmed that I got paid they put the shoe back up online so I could complete the paypal process. Those folks at Frans Boone are classy, very very classy.

    Congrats on the purchase. That is high class service. That scare should make you enjoy the boots all the more.

    Question: I want a pair of plain toe Indy's in brown, but only see them offered in natural. Would it be possible to purchase them and then just dye the leather to get the darker color I want?

    I know it seems like a lot of trouble but I can't find any plain toe boot in dark brown, with the exception of the roy boot. The problem with that is that I do not like the crepe sole.

    They really went above and beyond to accommodate my needs and that is something that I will definitely take with me moving forward, if I get hit with duties or fees of any kind I will think of it as an extra charge for unbelievable customer service which I will always pay a little extra for. Frans Boone is among the best I have dealt with.
