    Does anyone have the Dark Brown Kudu Chukka boot? Curious to see what they look like in real life. Seems like a good casual shoe to wear.

    What are your thoughts on the type of leather used and how do they hold up compared to the other calf leather that Alden uses.

    I am particularly interested in it because of the sole, would be great for tropical country where we see lots of rain.

    search this thread, there was a dsicussion on this a while ago. I know this because i had the same question this past weekend. Apparently it holds up very well in rainy/wet weather.

    Absolutely beautiful collection you have going! Have you found a significant difference in fit/comfort between the two eyelet vs. three eyelet chukkas?

    Hi guys. Finally got my Indy boots (Ultimate's from Leather Soul) but have a question! They're really beautiful, but I'm unsure about the fit. I was advised to order size 10.5 D (I'm an 11 in most shoes, a 10.5 in some) but I can't tell if they're just a bit big.

    My toes end up basically right where the white stitching is. Perhaps just past it. Given the shape/style of the boot (it's narrower in the toe than most boots/shoes I wear), is this proper fit? On and laced, they don't feel loose or anything, I'm just not sure if that's too much room in the toe for where my foot should be (or if a 10 then might be too small). Any help, I'd really appreciate! Thanks so much. I'll get some pics up soon.

    Thank you Papa Doble,

    Anyone recommend between the Alden No 8 wax polish or the Saphir Cordovan Cream Polish in "cordovan" color? I plan on picking up the Saphir Reno and using that mostly. But was curious as to what polish or to have on hand. I am personally unfamiliar with cream polishes as I have always used wax on my calfskin shoes. Thanks again.
