My common-spidey-sense questions the usefulness of the item though. Seems like one could get the same benefit from pressure, Saphire and the Mac Method.

I think there is something to the deer bone. I believe there is naturally a lot of oils in them, which can be good for leather, esp. cordovan. I also think the roundness of the bone helps to flatten out the folds. But, I would imagine a combination of synthetic products and a plastic round tube like thing in roughly the shape of a real bone could likely accomplish the same thing but maybe not as simply or easily.

See this video for a deerbone in action:


Think too of neatsfootoil, which is used by Horween as a final nourishment to their Chromexel leather. Neatsfoot oil comes from the shins of cattle I believe. So, there must be a lot of oils in the shins of these four-legged animals or something.

Most important question of the day, Fenway, where did you get #4 Indys? PM me so I can get them in my size before the entire thread has a collective freakout. biggrin.gif

Also, can someone tell me what last the AlanC Leathersoul boots are on? I couldn't find it on the LS website; I know I must be missing it somewhere.

It appears that there was an influx of #4 shoes on the market, which kinda sucks...not so much the white unicorn anymore...and kinda cool (people actually get to get some) at the same time.

Shoemart. I really don't like Indy boots but I still called to see - the woman I spoke with denied they existed so they may be reserving them for walk-in customers or their special peeps.

+1 I still have an unused pair of the 4x4s from LS - maybe this will convince me to actually wear the friggin things! shog[1].gif

Truth be told - I like the ravello color better.

gorgeous patina on the Alden Ravello ? Longwings. They look 10> years old
post #20833 of 122416
btw, the seller describes condition as "2/3" but I think they look like "4"

All of our items are graded on this rating system:
1 Brand new with or without tags
2 Gently worn one to two times, Like New condition
3 Gently worn, light wear, Excellent overall condition
4 Minor Flaws and/or medium wear, Good overall condition
5 Worn and Loved

Just be patient, they will come. My last 2 pairs took about 13 months to come in. They will be worth the wait.

Yes. They are Whiskey shell longwings.. The model number (97891) in the bottom picture indicates as much. FWIW, the model number for the Ravello Longwings is 9750.
