post #52141 of 122416
Has anyone owned black shell full straps and black calf full straps? Or just one of them?

I am considering one or the other and would appreciate some feedback.

As it stands I can acquire the calf version at about half the price of the shell version. They are both new and never worn.

I have color 8 shell full straps.

Thanks.

Thanks. My left heel is wider than the right... I experience a tiny bit of heel slip on the right shoe that I anticipate will go away with a bit of break in. I also used very thin socks for the initial try on.

Very nice!

With the understanding that this board is biased, and the caveat that I just pre-ordered some ravello, can anyone who owns both Alden and Carmina shell speak to the difference in comfort? Do they use cork footbeds? Which shoe do you find yourself wearing more often?

 

The difference in price seems to be nominal and I'm wondering if I should give them a try once my shoe fund recovers.

SFTG: is this through Amore? I was going to grab a black pair in 10.5 at the sale price. Sadly, the stock list was not up-to-date.

I can't help with the comfort comparison with Carmina, but all high-end RTW Goodyear-welted shoes use cork foot beds.

Hill: would you be willing to divulge the details of this preorder? I'm looking for some Ravello too.

Gents,

I believe I have an Uncle Mac in the wild sighting this morning!! I didn't want to disturb him as he read his WSJ, but I'm pretty sure this was him.
