Can't say this very often because I've been lucky enough to get a lot of nice pairs but I am truly jealous of the Ravello Modified PTBoot; if anyone has one in a size 11 please let me know.

If linen drives you crazy with the wrinkles, you should probably avoid CXL.

It's finally official! Leatherfoot in Toronto is carrying Alden! First delivery scheduled for spring, 2015. They are starting out conservative but I'm sure they will have some outrageous drops down the line.

I've been pestering them since day one to get them on board so I'm super excited. You can preorder from their online catalogue with a $150 deposit.

Is the link I received via email. I'm sure it will be on their site soon, if it isn't already. Apologies if the link doesn't work, I'm on mobile.

I wonder if Alden will let shoes go back into the US from Toronto...

There are some nice excahbge rates that could be in play...

I am curious and do not mean to come off rude.

Thank you
I like having them all.

However, I also feel like at least one of these is going to have to go (I'm out of space). I could argue the differences between balmoral, lwb, Aberdeen last... But it'll come down to my gut feeling. I have sold and returned several Aldens, I don't miss them after I make the decision to let them go. But I'd rather have them and sell some, than miss out on them altogether.

Btw, I didn't find your question rude.

For some of us, including MrDV, this is all we need to justify it: different lasts, different overall design, different shades of whiskey. biggrin.gif

The boot/last is all I'd hoped and then some..it's SUPER light with great support, not to mention shade
For comparison I've included a couple shots of two other Ravello pair as well as a group shot with Whiskey and Cigar









Congrats!! They look great. Haven't worn mine yet.

I suppose the same can be said about creasing with shell cordovan with certain models like the PTB or the chukka.
