    I am dissapointed with my chromexcel wingtips too. The color is different than what I was expecting based on the pics on their website, I don't like it as much.

    Basically any shoe can be resoled as long as the upper is attached to a sewn welt? Doesn't have to stay a crepe?

    I believe this is the case. I went into a local shoe repair shop today and had a chat with the guy. He was redoing a pair of shoes. It had rubber sole originally and he was doing a leather sole replacement as requested by the owner.

    I actually went in there to talk about shoe care and maintenance with the guy, which leads me to ask you guys this....how do you care for your shoes/boots? Just wax every now and then?

    PS sockpuppets - thanks for your insight and your picture to compare the Indy's to the chromexcels.

    If they're unworn, please feel free to return them and I will pay for the shipping back too.

    Tom, what size do you wear in Barrie or Plaza?

    8.5EE (preferred), 9D, or 9E Barrie, 9E, or 9.5D Plaza.
