    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

    1. "What size should I order?"

    Your most common size in sneakers/tennis shoes. The boots run a tad long, but the MOST IMPORTANT THING is that your heel feels nice and snug and your toes aren't hitting the ends of the boots. They should feel tight around the rest of the foot until you break them in.


    2. "But I saw a review that said—"

    LET ME STOP THERE. Did the review specify what version he had? Is it the same boot you're going to buy? Do you have his foot? No. No. Hopefully no.

    I make upgrades with every batch. The little numbers next to the boot name indicate what version you'll be purchasing.


    3. "So what size should I order?"

    For men? Your most common size in tennis shoes (NOT boots). For women? I'd say go up a size if you're on the fence.


    4. "Okay, I got them, and they feel a little tight. Did I get the wrong size?"

    Probably not. Take the laces completely off and walk around. The only thing that should feel comfortable is YOUR HEEL. As long as it's nice and snug, the leather will soften and the boot will mold to your foot.


    5. "Wait, so I can actually wear them?"

    Yes. It's called "The Live Free Guarantee". How can you know if you like riding boots if you can't wear them — or even *GASP* ride with them?

    There are some limitations though. Read "The Live Free Guarantee" — but overall, I want happy customers. Happy customers come back.


    6. "I can really return them even if I've worn them or ridden with them?"

    Yes, but again, read "The Live Free Guarantee", it's our UNOFFICIAL Return Policy. Our Official Return Policy is called The "Road House" Return Policy. They work hand in hand. If you abuse "The LFG", you won't be able to purchase from us in the future.


    7. "It's Thursday and I need my boots for a ride Saturday, will they come in time?"

    No. You can buy expedited shipping at checkout, but that does not include Fulfillment Time (1-2 business days) and shipping times are estimates.


    8. "What kind of conditioner should I use on my new Indie Ridge boots?"

    I've probably tried every conditioner/oil that exists. I recommend "Leather CPR". It's cheap and you'll never see the bottom of that tub.


    9. "Do you ship internationally?"

    Yes. But you're responsible for all shipping fees, in addition to duty and fees. Sorry, but you know where you live.


    10. "How do I return or exchange a product?"

    For domestic orders, click anywhere it says "Size Exchanges & Returns", enter the email address you ordered with, and follow the instructions. For international exchanges, contact us at hello@indieridgeusa.com


    You can email us with any other questions just don't ask how to do a Size Exchange or Return.

    Or call us at (323) 207-9181 between 9:30am-5:30pm Pacific Time. If I don't answer, Stephanie (the nice one) will.

    If you leave a message, I'll call you back and we'll talk about nothing, or everything, for 45 minutes.

    - Steve

    HELL YA BROTHER!

    I'm gonna start leaving the first review for every new product.

    People kept asking if I was going to do more styles of the "The Wingman Collection" Ventilated Boots. I said, "Actually yeah, there's a Ventilated Comanche coming out called 'The Armstrong'".

    "Can I buy it now?"

    "Well it's not out yet."

    "Can I buy them now over the phone?"

    "You want to see a photo or anything?"

    "Sure, send it after. My credit card number is...."

    These will sell out fast.

    Buy now. Regret never.

    After purchasing the Knight and the Cheyenne a couple years ago, I saw the Armstrong 5 days ago and knew I just had to add it to the collection. I just received this boot today after extremely quick shipping and delivery and I could not be more happy with my purchase. The weather forecast today was 97°F with clear skies, 36% humidity, and 19 mph winds. First thing I did was break them in for a few hours since I've got wide feet. After that I took them out for a spin on the bike for about 150 miles at the hottest part of the day and let me assure you the only part of my body that wasn't hot was my feet. My wide feet felt snug but not cramped and were well ventilated allowing them to stay cool throughout the trip. I could feel the breeze through the boot as I rode! Shifting and movement is a bit stiff at first but definitely loosened up as the day went on. My final thoughts? Just go ahead and buy it. Not only do they look great, they're extremely well ventilated, and offer the protection you need. Great job again on another awesome product and keep it up Indie Ridge. Next up for me is the walker!

    Love them!

    This is my second pair of Indie Ridge boots. I first bought a pair of Black Comanche boots and loved them so much that I decided I needed a pair of brown boots as well. That’s when I picked up the newly released Armstrong boots. Not only are they ventilated but they also are comfortable right out of the box without much of a break-in period. I’m so happy I decided to invest in Indie Ridge boots. They are comfortable, stylish AND protective. I simply love them!

    Just Get Them

    A single tear rolled down my face as I pulled these onto my hopelessly and unnecessarily block-shaped feet for the first time. The dark clouds that have hovered above me for my entire life parted, and a warm beam of sunlight fell upon my face as I knew contentment for the first time. “They fit,” I whispered aloud to myself in complete and utter disbelief- “they actually fit!”.

    If you too have grown accustomed to riding shoes that fit like scuba flippers, reach for your wallet and never look back. If you’re thinking about springing for these shoes, do it. If you’re not thinking about it, start thinking about. Thank me later.

    Love them

    Was worried I would have to break them in but they were comfortable right out of the box and only going to get better. Feel like great quality with attention to all the little details. I don’t normally spend this much on my feet but won’t ever regret these knowing they are well protected and look great. Happy customer.
