See Ya,

Steve,

At least this time, that is not the case. The seconds are at their warehouse and not their shop.

Snuck a minute to snap three quick pics. Here is the first.



They are a nice, but darker shade of Whiskey.

Did you get the tobacco chamois or black earth? I didn't see the tobacco on the 11.5 list but I was on mobile and might have missed it. Anyway, if it is the tobacco and you don't like them, I will take them off your hands!

I can confirm. The seconds are never in the store the day the list is emailed. Trust me, I've set land speed records trying to get to Norwalk after getting the email. facepalm.gif

Rocking my Ravello NSTs.



The Whiskeys are a darker Whiskey shade. The Ravellos are lighter and redder in real life. Whenever I get to synching my Nikon it will show.

MrDV, i struggle with having two shoes in the same design in the same color... by design i mean wt, what is the thought or justification for having both???
I am curious and do not mean to come off rude.

Thank you

I got lucky on these, 9D in Barrie from TSM. Waited 40 minutes just to get to a live person. Didn't think I had a chance (11:30am PST), but they were still there.

I've wanted a #8 cap toe for some time...
