I think the darkish red toned ravello is the best shade. That shade of ravello is significantly differrent from the butterscotch/caramel whiskey, which allows you to have both in rotation. The dark red toned ravello also works great with certain colors (for example, red ravello shows with a navy suit, pink shirt and navy tie look awesome). To those that are getting these dark ravello shoes, consider yourselves lucky, you are getting one of the better Alden cordovan colors
+1 The color isn't "ravello" as I've come to know it but it is beautiful - almost like a vintage color 8.
