Funny that they're listing the color as "Repello".
Repollo is a type of stain resistant finish; not a color.

^ haaaa. ive seen similar naming oddities. hot cup of snuff suede anyone?

post #32482 of 92358

^ is $425 a good deal for these suede shoes?  isn't that about market price for these?

post #32483 of 92358
just about. Alden prices circa 2010. yoox has a 10% discount floating around. $385 shipped for that shoe is not bad at all

The vamps are only slightly mismatched in shade, but its very very hard to tell in natural light. I think the lamp I had on the shoes while taking pics made the reflection on each vamp appear significantly different.

Even so, it just makes the shoes more interesting IMO.  Wear them in good health!

That color might be considered "repello" to some...
