@chrisefi That is a superb collection of boots. You have all 4 of the boots still on my rare shell "TO GET" list, the Cigar and Ravello WTB, Cigar Indy and Ravello CT.

Mighty jealous!!

You have an awesome growing collection. Thanks for posting up! Which do you find yourself wearing the most?
This might be the sickest post in this thread (or the OG thread). Absolutely unbelievable. Your color 4's are stunning.
I love these. They look great on Barrie with a reverse antique welt. Beautiful shade of Cigar my friend. Enjoy!

 

thanks for the kind words gentlemen.

A great looking collection Chris! Good balance of boots but you need more shoes. :-) Fit is key and selling non fitting is the right thing no matter how hard they were to get...

This is where great boots, such as Alden Indy boots, makes a big difference in comfort and suitability. George

Great boots but, even more, you're doing some great work over there.  We need more people like you making us look good overseas. Thanks!
