    Saw those, I actually thought the OP was mistaken and posted pictures of the other Alden plain toe boot that Shoemart is currently sold out of, Barrie last. Had never seen the plain toe Indy. Thanks for the link..

    Mick - What are your thoughts on the Alden DC store? Going by there tomorrow afternoon.

    I have dealt with them and they are great. I ordered the cigar cap toes, but ended up returning them bc of fit and style issues, but they really are great looking boots. Joe and Kathy over there are great.

    Should I ask for them and tell them you sent me?

    Stange, I paid express too. I wanted to have the tracking number to follow it. Mind you i live in Toronto so it's on the other side of north america, but when i try and track the package it still says ins enroute from Leather Soul...oh well patience i guess.

    I have been back and forth on whether to pick these up, after this pick I ordered them. I thank you but my checking account does not.

    Those chukkas look great. Is the sole nice and flexible with the oiled leather sole. I am looking forward to a pair, but need to wait until Tom does another order to get my size in the Barrie.

    i think the cap toe would look better with suits and dressier looks and the indy looks better with casual wear. so what do you see yourself wearing more of?

    I have both, except my captoe is on the plaza last which I prefer. I get about equal wear for both but if I had to choose one, I would go with the captoe
