I think the only thing from my collection I ever regret selling is the Alpine wingtip boot from LeatherSoul. This make-up could be a pretty nice replacement. nod[1].gif

Only Color 8 and Black are estimable.

WTF??

I don't think there's such a thing as "new" and "old" colors. Some of the more recent Ravello and Cigar batches were dark, but there have been some light offerings as well. The new Ravello medallion bluchers from Alden DC are significantly lighter than the chukkas posted from Alden SF, and those were released after the chukkas.

FWIW When I was in Hawaii in Mid-August that boot was being offered at $245 in 12d (my size). Might even be the same boot that was on ebay, I passed in favour of two pairs of shell instead, but I wish I bought them at that price point!

been awhile since I spent some money on shoes. had been looking to retire my old and busted AE black single monks for the occasional use. now I have a reason to..

Nice pickup. That's a great price, even with shipping

thanks!

 

it was totally impulse. I hadnt been in any non work related internet stuff for a couple days, and finally got a night to 'catch up' and saw that PSA. props to @Shouldaville

 

I definitely need a black single monk shoe like the least ever in the world, but I'll wear it just to get at least one use out of it. not a big black shoe fan (still haven't worn my jcrew cadets from the original discount they offered lol)

 

my buddy from out of town asked for a quick family pic today and laughed at how someone could need/acquire so much lol.. some will just never know hehehhe

 

(most of have seen)

thank you gents, and as I've mentioned a couple times recently in this thread.. if folks are 11.5barrie/12TTS... I might be purging.. not at this point now, but life changes have put my mind in a place where I grab some 405 indys 6 days out of the week, the rest can gather dust for all I care. I have some immediate family health issues that I might be able to prepay off ravello alone for awhile, and am now weighing the options.

 

dont feel inappropriate to message me directly if you are 11.5 barrie/TRU/12TTS and I'll set your info aside. cannot guarantee I'll put anything for sell, but if I do, my SF family gets first dibs before ebay vultures. No disrespect intended if I do not respond immed, my mind is just in another place right now.

 

I'll be MIA from the thread for the bit while I work through some stuff, but will gather PMs and respond accordingly if I deem necessary.

 

take care you guys. everyone be safe please :) shoes mean little in the gran scheme of things, trust me.
