I initially thought the same thing, but have no regrets... very happy.

Looks like it's more the welt part that is black. Whereas the Leffot version the welt area is Ravello color:

I wonder if the edging is even different between the two?

Agreed. Definitely brown. Mine look just like Aldenluver's. Take a close look at the heels in his photo. Even though brown, you can see different shades.

For me, Plaza vis-a-vis length and volume.

It's different albeit subtle enough not to be easily noticed. I wear my LWB with slacks/blazer so the darker edge works better for me. The lighter is more effective with a denim look.

Other than Mac method, you do anything special to those?

Thanks, nope. Mac method and a decent brushing before and after each wear. Keep them in the box under my bed with the rest of my girlfriends, er I mean, Aldens. If I feel they need a pick me up, I give em some venetian cream, and I may decide to pick up some Reno to help thta as well.

Yup, those are Leffot, and comments above are correct with the slight differences.

To be honest I like the darker welt and edge trim on the DC Ravello LWBs icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'm with this guy. Love the contrast. It is like a frame on a great painting.
