Decided to bring my Ravello PT boots for their maiden office voyage.

I'm very impressed with Modified last and unlined shell. Feels incredible to wear these beauties.

I know not everyone appreciates the modified last, but I think those boots are beautiful.  I'm guessing you just put them on since I don't see any creases.  Be sure to post pictures once they're broken in.  I'm curious what they will look like -- especially since they're unlined.

Will be posting updates for sure. So far I forgot their price already. Honestly, very impressed.

I own the shoes but not the socks. I was wondering the other day, with the tobacco chamois - are we supposed to do any maintenance to it besides brushing them off? They're already water resistant so no point hitting them nanoprotector or any thing else right?

Congrats on Day Trippers!

I personally just wear them and brush occasionally. I have not noticed the leather drying out in any way or needing a conditioner. This particular pair needs a beating to look its best 

 

Chup socks are highly recommended!

The smooth chamois looks better with every wear.
I do nothing with mine, except brush the mud off from time to time.

They stay well oiled from the copious amounts of oil in the leather.

I did ask Alden and they suggested Neatsfoot oil if they dried out.

I for one couldn't imagine it.

I am into my second winter with mine, and they are kicking a** and taking names.

Also, IME, taking your chamois Aldens into the pouring rain makes them look better.  Seems to clean them off well just by having them do their intended purpose.  The water brings out some of the oils and gives them a nice luster.
