    Hi guys, I'm really interested in picking up a pair of Alden Indy's. I have reviews, opinions, and seen many pictures of them, I must say, I really admire the quality of these boots.

    One problem I hope someone could help me out with is the sizing. I currently have Red Wing GT's in a size 8D, should I get the Alden Indy in the same size or should I size up or down half a size?

    Thanks.

    One of the best pairs of boots on this thread, period. More Alden stockists should be doing boots on Plaza with leather sole.

    #4 and ravello boots are some of my favorites as well.
    My favorite pair (at the moment) is ravello ptb.

    Outstanding family pics, gents... Away from home so I may be late with mine

    I sold a pair of ravello PTB very early in my Alden phase. One of my biggest regrets.

    Only own one pair of Alden at the moment, woe is me...

    However, thought I'd share my family photo of brothers from different mothers on this memorial day.

    Please excuse the horrible carpeting, it's a rental and I have a dog with white fur...

    Nice boot collection! And thanks for sharing.

    I have to say, I'm a little disappointed in the turnout so far...

    My imposters... These were my introduction to leather soled shoes; my gateway drug. Alden for J Crew came shortly afterward.
    Allen Edmonds Auburn and Florsheim Pebble grain LWBs.

    Happy Memorial Day my friends...

    A slightly older photo. But here is my growing shoe collection. Started as solely Allen Edmonds and now Alden's have taken over. I just got a pair of Cigar Cap Toe Balmorals from TSM last week that are not pictured.

    Have a great day all!

    horrible iphone photos of my small collection. suede chukka is from AE, couldnt pass up for $99 as i rarely wear suede and couldnt justify alden cost.
    not pictured, as they havent arrived yet, as ravello LWB from jcrew. first pair got lost in shipping, have a smaller pair in the mail now, hoping they fit [​IMG]
