    Also, just a heads up, tan suede longwing available at WinnPerry.

    I just bought a nearly identical shoe from Leathersoul, even pre-ordered it I was so excited, but the WinnPerry offering is on a double oiled leather sole rather than double oak leather. I love the comfort and traction of the oiled leather soles on my Alden suede chukkas and think the double oiled sole would be preferable on such a casual suede longwing. I've only briefly tried my new pair on, maybe they can be returned...

    Does anybody have any pics of an Indy boot in black Cordovan that is well worn and/or actually on some body...any real world pics of how the black Indy boot ages??

    Believe it or not I have scanned most of this thread but all the pics of black shell seem to be of brand new or almost never worn boots in someone's closet...

    thanks in advance....

    Good eye! Looks like some type of brown stitching as well for some contrast. Nice.

    Very nice - I ordered a pair independent of this thread - which I just found.

    the onyx shoes were longwings, not indy boots.

    Pretty nice. What are your thoughts of the double waterloc sole?

    I can't tell a difference between these and standard leather soles in all honesty, but I'd imagine these would hold up better in foul weather, which is what I bought them for..

    If you're looking for the flex welt, I don't really know anything else out there.
    Otherwise if you don't mind the double sole, get the whiskey longwings (I think Shoe Mart has some).
    The J Crew ones aren't bad either if shell is too pricey..

    Leather Soul

    Whiskey from Epaulet.


    For color reference, l to r: whiskey, ravello, walnut calf, cigar, and C&J for Polo brown.
    The Cognac is really close to the walnut color.

    Very nice. 100% shoe win. [​IMG]
