Your preferences should keep your future targets safe from the ravenous shell wolves on this thread, especially the 10Ds! :p

I've seen a couple of ravello lwb that look VERY close to #4. Mdubs has a pair.

Trying to put a timeline. Just how rare these are.

Minor threadjack, but with a little Googling, I discovered that Ron Rider was getting a whole host of unique and exclusive shell colors as recently as a few years ago.  Wonder how he managed to pull that off?

More for the rest of us!  :fonz:

I would expect that a "decent" condition used #4 anything would easily clear over $1,000 with the amount of competition/demand here.

I'm in the same boat. I really like Cigar and I don't have that from Alden. But you can get "brown" shell from AE pretty regularly.

I was bidding close to that a year ago on those #4 Chukkas and lost via a snipe with 1 second to go in the auction

I remember reading Ron was sourcing it directly from Horween.

I see the #8 LWBs on the J Crew site took a healthy jump from $645 to $697.

I love it the the transformation has come full circle.

I can remember a young ryden pming about Galways. Welcome to the darkside.

I would do yourself a favor and forget you ever saw/ read about #4 captoe boots. It will make your life so much easier.
