Prob the same reason the FDIC announces bank seizures on Friday afternoons...to prevent widespread panic and facilitate order...

Thanks -
 

I think I read that sizing is like Barrie.

Cheers. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go on an overnight drunk, and in 10 days I'm going to set out to find the shark that ate my friend and destroy it. I'm going to find it and I'm going to destroy it. I don't know how yet. Possibly with dynamite. Anyone who wants to tag along is more than welcome.

Boots.

 

Long time lurker, first time poster.  Just received my Ravello Wing Tip boots from Shoe Mart today, pictured above with my #8 Cap toe for J Crew, and 403 Indys from Alden of SF. When I started reading here that Ravello was disappearing and realized that Shoe Mart was just about out of every size of Ravello Wing Tips I just had to pull the trigger.  I love my #8 but my goodness the beauty of Ravello up close... really blew me away when I pulled them out of the box.

Remember Barrie and Aberdeen are at 2 opposite ends of the last spectrum.

Which model are you exploring for the Aberdeen?   

In my experience, 9D/9.5C in Barrie = 9.5D/10C in Aberdeen, and in Hampton, and in Plaza.

I've got that. I'll post a link to it a little later this evening.

Here you go:

10.5D
10.5E
11D

9.5D or 9E
