    Funny...I just got my CXL Indys, and they've got the exact same issue. I suspect they'll stretch a bit, though...they're immensely comfortable otherwise.

    It seems like about a year ago that I first saw the Barry crepe sole chukka in tan suede on the J Crew website. Those sold out quickly. Then a few months later they listed the same make up in Snuff suede. When they got down to just a few sizes they disappeared from the website too, although I've seen an odd size pop up occasionally - like the 8 and 12.5. I was able to find them in December at the Chelsea store in NYC after the guys at the Ludlow Shop checked the inventory for me. I've seem both J Crew models, Snuff and Tan, show up on eBay.

    Actually the first model was in Camel suede, not Tan.

    Reconsider the crepe, it's a casual make-up & can always be resoled at a later time. Here's a few pics of my LS #8 Ranger on the crepe.

    Thank you, very kind.


    Thank you. They are about a year old, special make-up from Alden DC.

    Thinking about doing this to my #8 Wingtip Boots. What's the process? Is it reversible if I change my mind?
