    i was thinkign of orderign a pair of Indy boots.

    do any of you think they are too light to wear with my RRDS? i think they would look good with my SS veggie washed, but i was wondering how light they are in person?

    the lighter ones darken with a dark polish. save yourself the trouble of tracking down the older/darker ones. there's a lot of tutorials on the web on how to darken them. no worries!

    mouldedshoe.com has the info.....call and talk to maurice. Aside from having the darker Indys, they also have Shell Cordovan Indy's in #8. I kinda wish I had gotten them, but I thikn I needed a pair of non cordovans. I will get the cordovans next.

    Those are so beautiful. Are these the regular Alden Indy, evolved. They look so much darker than when they are brand new. If that's what they turn in to, i'm going to get a pair for sure.

    Thanks, they are the regular Indy's, but from an older collection which are a darker colour to begin with than the ones that are being sold at the moment.
    Alden has been known to change the colour on their Indy's from time to time.

    Wow M!ch, I love the finish, almost lacquer-like. It would look great once distressed and beat-up by time.
