I haven't touched these since my little outing in the snow and ice on Sunday. I think they held up well. Not the best lighting, but...

People are just starting to figure out how to order Vass? nod[1].gif Really though, much better construction + reasonable build time and for many purposes better lasts. AS uses Horween exotics at least as well. Their whiskey offerings actually exist and are well made.

Come on, its just a dyed piece of leather......i actually had a forum member contact me with a pair of new alden #4 captoe boots (the theshoemart model) for sale at retail price. I decided to pass since i already have the ravello captoe boot on commando (which I prefer to double leather on a boot). True story.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Well you have more self-control than me then.  I would be all over both of those boots.  Hell, I might even where one #4 and one ravello boot at the same because I love those two colors so much.

I agree, it's not the most useful color.  A lot of hype due to scarcity.  People want what they can't have.

Haha, self control took me years to figure out. Having three daughters helps....happy.gif

Just got these color #8 wingtip boots (plantation crepe sole) in the mail.
Amazing boots, surprised at how much more red these look when compared my other pair of #8.
