I'm partial to chukkas, so if it was my decision and I absolutely had to give up one of those, I'd let go of the jumpers.

That said, I exchanged my unworn navy Indys for the marble Indys. Looking back on it I probably should have kept the navy Indy boots instead as I think those are more versatile

Thanks for your insight. I'm sure that you're well aware that Leffot is accepting preorders on the blue suede Indy right now.

Keep the CXL Jumpers IMO.

I wonder if they could be smoothed out with a deer bone or a spoon, anyone ever do this to get these ridges smoothed down.  The spacing between the ridges (bottom two pics) is even between each one and runs across the vamp and sides somewhat.  Looks like a manufacturing deal, can barely see it on the other shoe but it's there.  Truth is, these are so beautiful I hate to send them back to theshoemart as my creases will eventually run across the vamps anyway... still I wish they were perfect...

I seem to be getting the ravello bug... only thing readily available in my size right now is a barrie chukka. Seems like a lot of people dislike this shoe for the sloppy fit... any opinions otherwise?

Honestly I don't understand this critique that much. The Barrie chukka fits fine, and cordovan chukkas look great.

Edit - also, essentially all retailers say that Alden chukkas are among their favorite models.

Thanks - seems like the casual chukka profile with ravello would be a good combo.

What I was drinking last night. I thought bourbon seems like a better fit in the Alden thread...

Not my experience at all.
