No time to try for two reasons. I will most likely sleep in them and wear to the hospital without using Mac break-in method wink.gif

Congratulations on the birth of your child. The boots are nice but don't compare smile.gif

Gents, all around a great showing today! :-) Keep up the beautiful shoes and posting. I particularly liked your Whiskey PTBs BK. :-)

My recent purchases... All arrived while I was away... Ravello PT Boot, Ravello WT Boot, Whiskey WT Blucher

Ravello PT Boot. Modified (Banana) Last. Seconds from TheShoeMart.

 

 


 

I really like the pattern on the back of them...

I only wore them momentarily to test their fit. Such a beautiful color, but they definitely have an odd shape in the toe box. Looks like a stinking egg or something.

Whiskey Shortwing Blucher. Aberdeen Last. Harrison Ltd.

And finally, I think this is one of the Alden Kings (to me)... The Ravello Wingtip Boot. Barrie Last. Special narrow size. TheShoeMart.

 

My older pair of these are now on their way back to me with a fresh sole. I am excited to see how they look as well.

Cheers and happy weekend!

Awesome, Mike. They all look great but the WT boot really does stand out even among those incredible makeups.
post #96667 of 122416
^ Good going (as usual) Mike! Wingtip boots look truly special.

I see what you mean re. the modified boots - what a blobby looking toebox!
post #96668 of 122416
Mdubs,
That's an awesome drop.
I agree, ravello sw boots are pretty difficult to beat. Yours are so nice.
The whiskey short wings and pt boots are pretty awesome as well.

Finally snagged a pair of boots--just in time for the end of fall.

The wingtip boots take the cake. That modified last is not working for me, though.

Which is roomier Hampton or Plaza?, also are they roomier or narrower than a Barrie 1/2 size down ?, specifically in the heel cup.

Thanks.


I find the Hampton to be pretty roomy (more so than plaza for sure).  Barrie is a little more round and slightly roomier a 1/2 size down from the hampton last.  Others may say differently though.

@mdubs, The wingtip boots have become my favorite pedal possessions!  I absolutely love them... I feel like I need to snag another pair in color 8 asap!  Enjoy your new acquisitions; they are beautiful.  Let me know if you want unload any of them!  :D

post #96673 of 122416
@mdubs. Wow. You are a winner! How the heck did you score the ravello pt boots as seconds?! You paid a third of what everyone else had to pay! lucky lucky Mike.
post #96674 of 122416

post #96675 of 122416
