    MP very nice Alpine grain v-tips from Leather Soul, been looking at them myself. I seem to have a thing for NSTs, your pics and those of McArthur are doing serious damage to my bank account.

    Some good news from Kirby Allison's Hanger Project:

    "After a two-year absence from the U.S. market, we have finally obtained EPA approval to resume selling the much-popular Saphir Renovating Suede & Nubuck Sprays and Super Invulner Waterproofing Spray."

    Some days you just want to slum it in a pair of CXL Indys :)

    It's hard to see how wearing a pair of $500 boots can be considered slumming.

    Great boots! CXL is so comfy...

    The black fleece pair is on grant last which is way sleeker than barrie and at the price you paid it's well worth to keep IMO.

    Great point, Rydenfan. With shell getting toward $800, Indys are arguably "cheap." [​IMG]

    Have a good one!

    Thanks Stevent. Also got the pebble chukka (black). Unsure if the black cordovan is as versitile.

    Are the commando soles low profile? Based on pics from J Gilbert's website, it seems I'd rather have a leather sole for added elegance. I don't really care about weather issues and traction because it barely ever rains here in Los Angeles.

    Friday was gorgeous out and a bit busy, so I didn't get to posting my whiskey lwbs on their maiden voyage. I was so exuberant to have found them last week with the help of Voltaire from CitiShoes, so I kind of glossed over the carpet break-in thing. Anyway, here/quote]
    It's so much easier to look at posts like this knowing those shoes are in my collection! Great pics!

    Alden's commando sole is very low profile. Unnoticeable when wearing in my opinion.
