    1/2 price, you did well. Have the same sizing experience. 8C in Barrie and 8.5D in Leydon. The debated long on snuff vs. tan. But when I saw how the tan pairs with a dark raw indigo jeans in the store, I instantly made up my mind. I think tan is very versatile. Enjoy!

    A person I worked with in Marketing once told me that there is no bad product, only a bad price. These obviously should not have been sold brand new at full price. Negotiate a discount and it'll be like Christmas in May.

    I made a post a few weeks ago that my #8 Grant captoes weren't working for me. Good news, it turns out that it wasn't the boots that are broken, it was my feet. I went to see the podiatrist and had custom inserts made. Boy, they make a huge difference. I wore my Indy's Tuesday, the captoes yesterday, and the Indy's again today with no problems. On one hand, I am thrilled my Aldens fit so well now. On the other hand, my checkbook is sad, especially with all of the potential shell releases I read about over the last couple of pages!

    Just Reno. No polish required. And only Reno sparingly. Brush is your best friend.

    if its a scratch i cant get out just by rubbing with my thumb, i'll use a bit of reno.

    admittedly, I beat the hell out of my 403s and dont really care about them

    Thanks guys. Sounds like they are pretty maintenance free then. I'm looking at grabbing the indy chromexcels and the PTBs on the flex sole that are chromexcel. I guess they build character through the wear and tear.
