What are people's opinions on which is better? Ravello, Whiskey or Cigar (for long wings) if I already have Color 8s? I can't decide what my next pair should be!

Thanks. I already removed the wine. Now the left shoe or the shoe on the right in the picture has become much lighter. Just trying to even the color back out.

Thanks for your reply. Yea the left shoe is at least one shade lighter. If I use the kiwi medium, this should even out the color? Can I buy Kiwi medium and saphir renovateur anywhere local? Thanks

Wouldn't that really depend upon where local is for you? But the probably answer is "no".
Go to the men's clothing forum and click on the Hangar Project ad. He had renovateur in stock last I checked.
Obviously you can get kiwi anywhere.

They were stock. I think it is the way the flash hit them as they both look almost identical in person.
They definitely look like they are from the same tannery and piece of hide.

They probably are, I just got the full list because I was asking about ordering odd sizes.
