    Any recommendations on where to get soles redone on Indy boots in NYC? What material do you suggest? Never have resoled shoes before.

    Use the search function as it you will gain a ton of info. I would suggest either B Nelson or sending back to Alden

    adam is great in hindsight, like the adult in the room. I once really wanted a pair of boots and he told me they wouldnt fit. i told them id make them fit. He say nu-uh, and sure enough he was right

    Namor they look awesome. It wasnt until you first posted these that I was convinced I wanted a pair and put myself on the pre-order. Your pics convinced me, the ones on the website just didnt do it for me. Do you find the fit to be the same as the Shell Indy boot(if you have one) or any other true balance lasted footwear?

    Keep the pics coming

    Good point tifosi,

    I have a pair of forgotten Alden's myself. Perhaps we should have a dust of the shelf day similar to whiskey Wednesdays only for the forgotten shoe/booys in our rotations.

    That's a great idea! I can wear my black shell boots that I haven't worn in over a month!

    thanks man, youll love your pair. the style is surprisingly versatile and this particular model is perfect for chinos and denim.



    my whiskey pairs are also the least worn. as are other lighter colored shoes including those in calf and suede

    as far as sizing goes, the indy shoe (trubalance last) fits identically to the boot version. so I recommend same taking sam size

    I see there's a nice 1st quality pair of 6717's in 12E on the irregular list. Jeez I wish I was ~1 size smaller :violin:
