    Hard to believe that both the Indy and the Jumper are both on the Trubalance. The Jumper's toebox looks so much sleeker. Guess it must be the moc stitching on the Indy.

    I think the reverse welt on the Indys also has something to do with it. It widens the footprint of the shoe.

    Finally arrived after a 3 month wait (for a "stock" shoe) - I'll post a picture when I pick them up tomorrow, as the leather looks much better in person. It's very similar to chromexcel, and I was looking for an all weather shoe I can beat up a bit.

    Just letting folks know, Nordstrom Rack has cedar shoe trees for only $12.90+ tax. Good price if you have one in your area.

    What brand of wax do peeps here prefer?

    Also for Color 8 am I better off using Kiwi Cordovan or Alden Color 8 wax?

    Saphir

    Really not sure if there is a wrong answer there.

    Yep. I buy a pair for all of my shoes that cost more than $400.

    They come in 2 scents as well. Cedar and something else. The sales person always look at me like I'm nuts when I buy the 3-4 at a time.

    I'm itching to get a pair of natural chromoexel Indy's now. Hopefully retailers get their Spring shipments sooner than later.
