We're originally on my short list when I picked up Ravello LWBs a few weeks ago figuring I'd have time to save up for them. However had to jump on them when they became available.
Great looking boots.
I actually bought a pair last month. The eyelets had me concerned a bit as well, but they're gorgeous looking shoes and once I put them on I never even noticed the eyelets.
^ I despised the eyelets until I got a pair. Not only do you never really notice the eyelets once you have them on, they actually look better. Trust me on this. I hated the eyelets more than ANYONE on this thread, guaranteed. And now I love them and wouldn't want my shoes any other way. Trust.
They get the thumbs up from me. I've handled a pair and I like the exposed eyelets - casual it down a notch.
