    Exactly how I felt when I saw this new Indy on SM.

    Looks like they opted for all eyelets instead of speed hooks since J. Gibert already has dibs on that design. The stitching on the toe seems to be unlike the hand stitched cordovan we usually see as well. I'd probably be all over it if it came in a C width. Instant gratification!


    Those are great! I thought I was done buying Alden Indy's-I may have to give this one some serious thought. I really like the boot with all eyelets and 360 degree storm welt.

    +1 I do not like speed hooks on Alden boots. I want to lace them up slowly.

    +1. I think SM really nailed this one. Awesome boots.

    I just got the unlined chukkas in 8D on the leydon last. They fit well but I wouldn't want them any narrower but I have a feeling they will stretch a little. Would I be a 7.5D in barrie?

    Leathersoul just got in some V-tips in Barrie last. What are your opinions on the V-tips? The NST stitching looks a lot more sturdy than these, and I'm not sure how they would look well worn. [​IMG]

    ShoeMart has some whiskey and cigar longwings in stock in a range of sizes. It was really hard not buying those cigar longwings!

    Hi Tom,
    Is the black cordo a boot?


    Yup.

    Yup.

    Those look awesome!!!! I love the black shell with natural edge-trim.

    Here's my guess:

    Navy Blucher High boot in Black Shell Cordovan or Reverse Tobacco Chamois

    Barrie last, All around regular welt, Double water-lock sole, Matching agatine eyelets, Natural Edge-trim, and Goodyear heel unit.
