    just got in the Indy 404s in from Rooney out of Montreal. these things are built like a tank! talk about a commando sole, these with the Vibram full commando sole mean serious business.

    i'll use them for things like hiking and the snow or just when i want to fake it by looking outdoorsy.

    ship out and shipping to the USA was fast, only a few days. right boot was clearly tried on in the store and walked around in. oh well, not a big deal.

    i would not hesitate to order from them again, although will have to remember to use a credit card that doesn't charge me a foreign transaction fee next time. [​IMG]

    Looking great Uncle! Do you have the BB version also? Which do you prefer, BB or the 974? I regret not pulling the trigger with the BB version back when they had my size! Will probably snag the 974 if the right price shows up on ebay. Wear in great health my friend!

    Yes sir Uncle. The metal eyelets on the BB intrigue me. My whiskey version of the 974 (on tremont) is a very comfortable fit. I would be happy to acquire either.

    I have both versions in color 8. The BB version, by virtue of its last, is sleeker, but the factory version, by virtue of its double leather sole, is more of a workhorse.
