However, their pics make the shoes look quite a bit reddish...can any Ravello Shell owners post up pictures please?

I thank you in advance, but my wallet probably won't be thanking much.

Trust me, you won't regret it. here's a pic of mine:

Luckily, the post holiday blizzard in NY gave me a great chance to see exactly how durable they were.

October? Of 1812? I think they look great, but that's an incredible amount of wear in a few months. I can't even tell what the leather and finish were originally. But you can care for them now, with conditioner, trees, polish and a few days rest between wearings, and they'll serve you for a long time. Just not a lifetime at this rate. (Unless you happen to be in your late nineties.)

Alden in Mahagony grain shell. It would look great made as boots. Why grain shell is so rare?

Here are some shoes not seen on this thread very often. I picked up a pair of used Alden 909s (black semi-brogues) yesterday:

6 pairs of Aldens so far. Would've been 7, but I returned the NWT back to Shoemart for falsely advertising them as Barrie last.

Indy 405, Number 8 cap toe boot, Winn Perry pebble grain cap toe boot, cigar shell LWB, J. Crew's tan LWB, dark brown/burgundy pebble grain wing tip boot.

In no particular order for the upcoming purchases in '11: monk straps, black cap toe bluchers, and some whiskey type.


i am very jealous of you that you have homework to finish and can afford aldens. LOL.

This looks like a decent deal on a pair of Whiskey longwings on the'bay: Looks like the seller dropped the BIN price from $550 to $525 from yesterday. Pretty good price on a pretty rare shoe. I have no affiliation to the seller.

Got some #4/black saddles here at LSW. If you're interested contact me directly. Only small sizes left (9D and under).

So I have recently discovered that the Barrie last just doesn't work for me. The straight last just doesn't jive with my foot. I have found the best lasts for me are the Hampton and Aberdeen. With that being said what are people's thoughts on the Leydon?

Leydon is like a smaller version of the Barrie.
