    I have a pair for sale as well. I probably should put it in my signature.

    Don't know, but maybe if enough people here would keep emailing them they will start producing again

    I believe Uncle's break in method is for assessing fit, and it involves wearing the shoes on 3 separate days indoors on carpet for an hour (each time) before making a decision about the fit.

    and also so the toe of the sole doesn't wear excessively while the shoes are still stiff!

    Congrats on your Indy boot purchase! Your first Aldens and probably the beginning of a continuing pleasurable addictive journey.

    I'm looking for shell cordovan Indys - either #8 or (preferrably) cigar or Ravello. Are they in stock anywhere?

    Thank you sir! And yes, I have noticed that purchasing Aldens is an extremely slippery slope! I couldn't help but buy the Alden for Jcrew captoe #8 with the 30% off and my gift card from last Christmas... But I couldn't be happier investing my money into a quality shoe that will last me a long time. And none of this would have been possibly without the knowledge and advice from this thread.
