That ravello is reallllly dark.

my shell indys with commando will be requiring a visit to the cobbler for a re-heel pretty soon.

 

wondered how people dealt with the commando heel?

 

I wondered if it was unadvisable to replace the heel with a flat heel piece, and actually reduce the heel size by (say) 3-5mm,

bringing it down to the standard heel height for indys.

 

Any advice, thoughts --- "no that is a very bad idea!" most welcome!

Agreed, that does seem very dark for Ravello. I have the same chukka, purchased new about 4 months ago and they are considerably lighter and more caramel in color.

I would try and get a commando like replacement personally.

It is on the darker side of new Ravello. However there is very little light in that photo. You can tell that the camera had to crank up the ISO.

Okay, let me get this straight...

 

New Whiskey = Old Ravello

New Ravello + olive tint = Old Cigar

New Cigar + slight burgundy tint = Color 8

 

Only Color 8 and Black are estimable.

 

WTF??

These are killer. I waffled on these and ultimately lost out. Great make-up.

I think I have these somewhere. Let me look around. One thing I remember is that there are very few, if any, special shell make-ups on the list.

There's no natural light and besides the kitchen, none of the other rooms in my house are very bright.
