    Does anyone know if there are makeups of the Indy with a vibram lug sole besides the 404? I really like how chamois looks but if I'm getting an indy might as well get one with a serious sole.

    Not that I know of (I'm still new to Alden's but it's now become my only obsession [​IMG] )
    but I'd check this blog out. He had put one on, although it's not the traditional black sole we've seen everywhere. But to get an idea about a silhouette...

    color 8 nst boots


    I have the LS NSTs in Cordo 8 but I must admit the boots look even better...

    Just bought another pair myself: J Crew Tobacco Longwings. Should be with me next week hopefully!

    Darn these Aldens are addictive. Reminds me of collecting Jordans in my younger years.[​IMG]

    That's a bummer! I would not be happy with that. I would return.

    Return city, population you.

    Cordo #8 Smooths, right out of the box. Not sure how I managed to live without these for so long
    Yup. I picked up a pair on the cheap and they instantly become the most versatile shoe in my collection. Wish it didn't take me 4 years on here to realize that these and grey flannel trousers are my 'uniform'.

    Whiskey PTB's


    Sharp shoes Porter.

    The more I see real life examples of plain toe Aldens, the more I love them. I kinda punked out last year and bought Florsheim Imperial plain toes in Burgundy, but after seeing these pix I can't get the Alden #8 plain toes out of my head.

    did you buy vintage Florsheim shell PTB's, or recent calfskin Florsheims in burgundy? big difference.

    I've found that trying to find vintage shell PTB's is actually much harder than trying to find vintage longwings.

    shell - I wish !

    I bought new calfskin. Not happy at all. The finish looks like shite after just 1 year and not too much wear.

    Very nice shoes. If you would have told me those were Ravello PTBs I would have believed you [​IMG]

    I agree. They look nothing like my Whiskey pair.
