    No, you can still get a Topy put on. If you can't find a place in Chicago, B. Nelson will be able to do it.

    If you want to have rubber soles like vibram Topys installed, it's actually better to have some wear on the sole as it allows the sole to adhere better.

    Gus Shoe Repair on the North Side of Chicago does a good job with rubber soles.

    Brooks Shoe Service. They're at 29 E Madison. Head up the elevator to the sixth floor, take a left, and they're at the end of the hall. It'll be $35 for a Topy. They always quote a week or more for turnaround, and have always taken less (for me, at least).

    If you are doing an exchange for size I don't think it will be an issue.

    To quote my niece when she was 5 and saw candy, "I NEED that."

    Cigar is stunning!

    I have never heard of a company not honoring a discount on a straight exchange. It would be, at once, illogical and absurd. You will be fine.

    Finally got my first pair. J Crew snuff plain toe boot. Extremely comfortable right out of the box.

    Has there ever been/will they ever make black suede plain toe boots?

    TSM #4 captoes. I have #4 wingtips and wasn't sure I really needed captoes too. I'm not sure I can give these up though.

    It's not a 100% match for your request, but Context has a nice rough out black boot:
