    Does anyone know which shoe last the longwings in the very middle of the picture is? It's definitely not on the Barrie last cause the one on the right looks more like it's on the Barrie last. This one has more of a round toe box, which I like.

    it's because of the camera angle. the middle picture was taken at an angle while the one on the right was taken from directly above the pair of shoes

    They'd work for me - I can't get the Trubalance last to fit, so maybe this would do it. And I like the less clunky look.

    I like it; the mocc toe stitching subdues the pointier shape of the Plaza last. Not sure if the intention was to make a dressier Indy boot, or a more casual boot on the Plaza last, but I think it achieves the latter more than it does the former. I also prefer the regular welt to the reverse welt featured on most incarnation of the Indy boots.

    How does the colour of the burnished tan calf compare to the vegano tan calf? Based on those photos, the burnished tan calf looks like the same shade as the ravello chukkas(!)

    I'm not sure about these tbh Tom... Maybe because they look too similar to Tanker boots?

    Tom, i am not particular in love with the plaza last on those Indy's to be honest.
    there are so many other shoes that the plaza last really suits. but it might work for those who really need those who prefer plaza.

    i felt the same way at Moulded Shoes a few months back when purchasing a pair of Indy's.
    i tried on his Modified Last Indy's, and even thought i liked the fit the modified last very much, i did not like the way that last and style combination looked on me, especial with the exaggerated mock stitching bend from the last shape.

    Very good, Ahab!
    I also wear the same size (in the same last) regardless of the leather, style, etc.
    Order, try, keep or return - no worries, no madness.


    Not so feasible for people living outside the States ordering their shoes from up-scale retailers for around and sometimes higher than 50 Dollars. And if they do not fit properly, they cost around 25 dollars to ship back. Besides I do not know whether they charge for the shipment on the exchange pair for the same price.

    i think all indy's should look big and clunky it is indiana jones boot, so i am not sure about these on the plaza, but then again its gives alden fans more choices.

    They are simply gorgeous IMO. At least one may consider buying Tru-balance lasted Indy boots for a clunkier look and a pair of these in a different color. After seeing these I wish I had not bought too many Indy boots.

    Nice but very familiar looking. Looks like Tankers sans split toe.
