    If you're referring to the flipper: is flipping '...pulling a fast one...'?
    Not in my book. I call that "free enterprise."

    I'm selling those boots, any question please PM I don't want to bog down this thread. I posted in the other one.

    I'll just say that regarding the condition, I'm not the original owner but was told by him that they had been worn about a dozen times and I have no reason not to believe him, he's a well known poster/seller so that's what I said. the insides are extremely clean. shell creases fast and can scratch fast, and the boots need a polish for sure, but I took plenty of clear pictures because I don't want to mislead anyone. the pictures should certainly speak louder than my words, as they did when I purchased them.

    ^ Bold coordination for summer. Ravello might have worked a bit better. Still, nice as always.

    I wanted to order some Indy boots and I don't have a retailers nearby to try them out. I understand Indy boots run larger in width and length, but I am trying to get an idea of how much wider they are compared to Red Wing Classic Moc Toe Boots. My foot width is slightly bigger than D. In width E RWs, I can wear 8.5 and the length is just right and width is just right or a tad bit touchy. The size 9 length feels a bit long and width is just perfect. Would I be better off going for 9D or 9E in the Indy boots?

    maybe you guys can help me here...so i bought a pair of color 8 longwings where the shell wasn't matched up on the brouging and the vamp. they were switched out for these. the color is perfect, but there was a small raised area on the vamp right by the brouging. at the time i thought nothing of it as these were my first pair of shells, but over a couple months, this is what happened...

    [​IMG]

    look at the inside of the rippling...a ridge developed. it looks like there may have been extra material or something, definitely a second. will alden be able to fix this or return this, or am i stuck?

    EDIT: although my gait may be retarded, hence the creasing, the spot on the upper left in the pic feels much less dense than the other shoe (which doesn't have that weird ridge in the creasing). also, my whiskey lwbs didn't crease like this, either.
