Who was it that said buy now and deal with the consequences later? Namor or Bakes?  You couldn't have been more correct.  I had been on the fence about the RL Lindrick and Gianni for $705 shipped with tax included.  I saw AltVol's NST pics and thought, I would much rather have those than the Lindrick/Gianni (I would wear them much more often).  Called Joe and what do ya know... $460 shipped and should arrive by next weekend.  What a deal!

 

I finally found them Uncle!  Pics to come later...

ps Thank you AltVol for the your timely, inspiring pics!!   DonL, you are an inspiration also with those same shells!  :cheers:

Great! Can't wait to see the pix. :nodding:

Hiya Fellas!

 

I have to do a non-work related PowerPoint tomorrow on how to do something or how to train for something...

I'm sure the room will be full of eye rollers, but maybe I'll break through with someone out there...ya never know.

Congratulations!  I am genuinely excited for you, as odd is that is, being that I don't know you IRL.  I do recall giving you some piece of frivolous advice, that must have been it.

 

Perhaps this is shoe karma at work.  Since you were noble and did not go behind your wife's back to get that used pair of NST boots from eBay, you were rewarded with this other grail at an insanely unbeatable price.

 

Todays frivolous piece of advice, inspired by your good fortune is: If you think that you will be denied permission, don't ask for it.

 

Seriously though, I understand what you are saying about setting a good example.  If the world had more parents like you, there would be less dishonest people among us.

 

If your wife is unhappy about this purchase, just give her the background on the situation, about how you were encouraged to buy the eBay pair behind her back, and that you decided to do the right thing instead.  She will surely agree at that point, that you do indeed deserve these.

Thanks for the well wishes gents.  I should clarify... I sagged the last Ravello NST in my size.  I'm not sure what they have available in other sizes.  Congrats to you too brp2; enjoy your whiskey PTBs!

post #63852 of 122416

curious if any of the other ravello NST recipients this week noticed any tiger striping that previous ravello NST (in my experience, the boot atleast) have had? I just opened the pair I received today and they had the striping on one shoe on the outer side of the vamp. even if they fit me, I'd likely return (as I did with the ravello NST boot I bought from shoemart last year)

 

atleast the cigar indys I also received look good. 1 out of 2 aint bad :)

Much gratitude Bakes!  Somehow I suspect $460 will seem like a bargain.  Time to turn on some serious charm! :D

Looks like it.  Still wondering where in the hell these so-called irregulars were coming from??  Thanks DV!

Fate works in strange ways.  While I still want those NST, plaza-lasted color 8 boots, I'm certain I would have snagged these ravello NSTs first, especially at this price. Thank you very much my friend!
