When you reach double digits in the same shell color, you may be justified in thinking like this (and perhaps not even then), but until then, enjoy!! biggrin.gif

I concur.

Been thinking over the same issue, so my short-term goal is to fill out the shell rainbow before moving on to having more than one shoe with the same shell (if I had to choose, that shell would be ravello LHS + ravello day trippers) biggrin.gif

This is only inexperience talking. I love #8 more than the other colors - it has a depth and variation to it that the others can't match. I own #8, black, whiskey, and have cigar on order, but if I could only have one color, it would be #8. My #8s include lwb, ptb, lhs, and they all get rotated evenly. Most corporate plebs rotate their black square-toe lace up with their black square-toe slip on. I rotate my shoes the same, only I do it with style.

This has been my mindset.

I've also gone as far as making sure that each shell color is also on a different upper/pattern

Jeez, double digits in the same shell color???  I don't even want to think about it! If I ever get to that stage, my wife will have to work till she's 80 to support that expenditure!  satisfied.gif

Quick question. Where do your toes seem to fall within a pair of Alden 975's? I just received a pair and at first thought they seem a little large, but I am worried that if I go a half size smaller they will taper down where my toes are too quickly and be tight around the sides of my toes. Right now my big toe ends just a bit before the decoration begins on top of the shoe.

I felt the same way until my first pair of ravello (LWB) arrived earlier this year.
