I see Winn Perry has a new pre-order for a ranger moc on a commando sole. This is a make-up I'd actually buy because it's unique and I could see getting a lot of wear out of it over the winter. However, the $575 price tag makes me cringe as you can grab cigar Marlows for around $500 on sale. It's going to be interesting to see at what price demand starts dropping, not that they couldn't use a drop already given the lead times.

That is a cool makeup, I agree $575 is kind of difficult to swallow though.

Very nice! We are due for quite the wet day. I almost broke these out myself but had another pair calling my name

Its funny because I thought they were reverse Chamois from the pic not snuff suede. I wish more Rangers were done on the Barrie as I have difficulty with my sizing in Van

. Agree. Over $540 just can't seem to do...

@MoneyWellSpent may be able to offer definitive details.

There are a few non shell makeups that I like but for me it's hard to justify paying retail , when you can get some models on sale @BB and sometimes @Jcrew, but I have to admit that some are very unique like the Leffot Chamois boot and Epaulet Innsbruck Indy boot.

I'm just a little concerned about colour. As per The Shoe Mart photo they look a lot lighter than this photo of Alden Snuff Suede here.

 

Can anyone tell me what it looks like actually?

I really prefer the darker colour.

 

I'm also going to try a friend's Cordo Colour #8 barrie lasted boots on to make sure I order the right size, anything wrong with that?

 

I understand that you've already ordered your boots but I will say that I think there is some variation when "snuff suede" is used to describe shoes/boots.  I also prefer the darker suede. Here are two snuff suede boots I own.  The chukkas are definitely darker than the WT boots.  I was actually surprised at how light the WT boots were.

 

Good luck and I hope the boots work out for you.

I find that Snuff varies from batch to batch and also depending upon the lighting. Here are a few photos of my Snuff Suede Alden's to give you a feel to how mine look.

Lighting dictates quite a bit.
