    ^^ they are going really well thanks mate!
    I can't wear them as much as I would like at the moment (due to work) but they definitely still get some wear ;-) Very comfy boots

    nice Stow. how's the feel&fit compared to the Indys? got the Black Indys w/Neoprene soles & i'm impressed of they wear comfortably & unworkboots-like they function on my wardrobe.

    anyway, i'm torn between a Stow/Malton or White's Americana #38 in Chromexcel ["Swing" last] for my next pair. the White's tho', even in Chromexcel, would be a bit of a heavy-duty wear__ w/ emphasis on "heavy". if the Trickers wear similar to the Indys, then i'd def consider them as a [more likely] next pair.

    I own a pair of Maltons as well. Getting them soled as we speak. The tan colour on the Stows work better with denim than the reddy brown of the Maltons (imo), although the Maltons come in a '6' which is wider than the Stow and is a little more comfortable with thicker socks. The Aldens in 9E fit more wider than the Stows which fit like their dress shoes with a bigger toebox. I also have the Whites semi-dress in 9E. The Whites fit shorter (should have gone with a 9.5E instead) and the ease-arch feels like it's just a touch too close to the heel).

    ^fantastic! tnx for the valuable info. i'm 8.5E on the Indys, so the Stow would be just too narrow. you got the Maltons in double leather or commando? i was thinking of getting commando.

    however, on White's Americana, i'd prolly go single/double leather for lower profile.

    I heard the swing last on the Americana is pretty much the same as the standard semi-dress last only with a little more wriggle room for the little toe. I'm getting a pair of RMW Rigger boots (instead of the wolverines) later this month and probably a pair of Iron Rangers next year. Not a huge fan of the ease-arch system, tbh.

    I got the maltons in a double leather, but I've changed my mind and am going to have a commando sole added to the bottom. The all leather sole works well for the stows.

    Hey guys. Anyone, who has an idea what shoes this guy is wearing? I'm usually more into sneakers, so I got no clue. Probably RW?
