post #95851 of 122416

as others have stated, if going for one pair, go boots. That's an awesome looking makeup, I'd pay good money for a pair in 11.5

Anywho, I do not know, if rarity was the sole factor, I would keep the Ravello WT Boots. They are much harder to come by than the Whiskey LWBs, not that those are a walk in the park either. Also, it is probably a nice change to try out some boots, however odd they may currently feel... They will grow on you. I had no boots only a few months ago, that has been rapidly changing... :-)

But if possible and you can financially afford it, you may want to seriously consider keeping both. Both are fairly versatile and beautiful footwear...

nephew, well stated and agree with your comments. in addition, boots provide better support for your feet

Unload the LWBs. IMO, ditch them because they are not an ideal shade of Whiskey. You'll get an opportunity to pick up a better shade in the future. I have rejected two pairs of Ravello shoes because the color was funky.

I don't know. Me and ATL are literally in an identical spot. I too wonder whether or not there's redundancy. I'm going to keep them both, but honestly I like the Whiskey shade. It's not too light or yellow.

Redundancy to me at this point would be a Ravello LWB unless I can find a JCrew Ravello LWB in 9.5D from somewhere.

ATL, keep them both! You'll appreciate that you did.

In my (very painful and exhaustively-researched) experience, the only thing that will actually correct a bunion is surgery. Use of orthotics, proper and thorough calf stretching, and arch massage will only at best slightly delay its onset and manage the symptoms.

Probably in another 3 to 4 years (once the kids are old enough that I don't have to physically chase them around anymore), I will have my right bunion corrected (the left one was fixed in 2004), so I haven't bothered to alter any of my shoes in any way.

The only thing that I know for sure is that leaving the world of squishy cemented Clarks and Rockports has strengthened my Achilles' tendons tremendously. It's been two years since I've had a tendonitis flare up in that area.

Anyway, good luck!

Wow, the run of New Balance exclusives finally gets trumped by a new Alden shell (re-)release! Bravo, LS... would have been nice to see the masses have a chance at this one. :D
