Speaking of Ravello boots... Has anyone heard from Alden NYC on the status of the Ravello WT boots?

mdubs,
That brass ravello LWB is stunning!
I've seen where others have asked but most likely missed your response, how do you maintain your shoes? When I was home last week I put in a decent amount of work on some of mine and was never able to get results close to what yours looks like...even on shoes I've worn two or three times only.
Thank you

Thanks Mike!

Not sure about you, but there's no way I'll be able to resist buying at least one of those boots.

Can't decide which one of the two below. Would love to see the #8 Indy from above, I'm not a big fan on the TruBalance last, much prefer the "Indy" on Plaza, and I have a feeling the Modified is more like the TB.

I think this is the coolest black Alden boot I've seen (never saw the recent $hitkicker boot from Epaulet, though).

Which one do I keep?

On the left suede cap toe boot from Shoes and Shirts . They said it is on the Aberdeen last.
On the right plaza last boot from Fransboone.

Guys?

 

 

I thought the Shoes and Shirts one looked great on their website, but I prefer the Frans Boone one's here in your pics.  I'm not into wholecuts, and while this isn't a wholecut by any means I like the fact that the big plain side panel is broken up with some stitches.  If it had a plain toe and plain side panel then I wouldn't like it as it'd be too plain overall.  Both are good looking boots though - keep both if you can!  

 

On a side note, do you have any chocolate suede to compare the shoes and shirts model with?

What is the best way to treat the CXL Indy against water and other elements? I prefer something that does not darken the CXL. I've used mink oil in the past. I believe that Leffot recommends Montana Pitch Blend leather dressing. What about Alden Leather Defender?

Hi guys,

If anyone is interested in the Context Tanker (details below), please shot me a PM for details. I'm in the process of getting a list together. Major differences between this and the Leffot make up are the reverse welt and dark edge, to me this is a more formal boot.

Context link: http://www.contextclothing.com/brands/alden-shoes/alden-context-number-8-shell-cordovan-tanker-boot

  • Color 8 shell cordovan
  • NST boot
  • Barrie last
  • 360 reverse welt
  • Black edge
  • Commando sole

-D
