    Depends how fervent your hate of speedhooks is. If you like the boot and can learn to live with it, I say do that. You rarely can know what make-ups or coming and, even if you do, you don't know when they are coming.

    If you really hate speedhooks, however, you should not buy them and wait for what you really want.

    Anyone else is on preorder for medallion captoe boots on Plaza last in Ravello (Alden DC)?

    Can't wait for mine. Hopefully next year.

    I agree. Wore these today. They're like slippers--perhaps THE most comfortable LHS:

    FTFY. Brixton's aren't even confirmed for production yet are they? 2 years + now.

    At least get an initial layer of paste wax on them to help with the rain, or try the leather defender if you can get it. I put a topy on my pair after a month or so, mainly for traction. I wear Alden suede and shell a lot in Seattle rain.
    Now that said, today was pretty wet and an ultimate indy day for me. Commando sole is great!

    GW has some advice for you: http://mostexerent.tumblr.com/post/56753055140/give-them-abuse-watch-the-glow-of-admiration

    Dawg fans should not worry about these things. :D

    The first time I wore my #8 Indys was a rainy day walking around downtown and the market. They survived.

    I've got some Defender but I've yet to use it. I keep forgetting.

    For those of you size 9'ers, there's a new pair of Leffot #8 tankers on eBay. Buy It Now for $1,249.99 (+25 shipping). Seller willing to accept offers though. If the seller is a member here, I wish you nothing but the best. If these sell at anywhere near that price, I'm going into liquidation mode.
