    $650. I missed the chance to get in on a special order from the Caramel store last December (something about saving money to buy gifts for family and loved ones instead of buying expensive shoes), and I promised I'd buy them if I had a chance again. So, well worth it.

    Nice 1000th post BTW.

    what was the going price on those?

    woohoo 1000th post

    Indy boot collection
    Back row: whiskey, #8, and cigar shell
    Front row: newer 405, older 405 (most recently used in some polishing experiments)


    Can you say more about your polishing experiment w/ the 405's? Personally, I like the results.
