Color 4 is nice. I have some.

But from time to time on this thread some dissaprove of how "red" some ravello models look. Those in that camp should steer clear of color 4. It is significantly "redder" than even reddish ravello.

Does anyone have the comprehensive listing of Color 4 make-ups released in the U.S. in the past 5 or so years?

 

I know TSM has 2 boots (WT and captoe).  Presumably there are other "regulars" to the extent you can use this term with Color 4?  Is there a PTB by chance?

 

Just trying to predetermine which make-up I'm going to try and wait for...

 

(There's no need to tell me to "just get any color 4 that's released, since it's so rare," as I know full well the paucity of this color.)

Funny, I was just looking at some notes I made to myself and it said "Alden #4 Cap Toe, July 2012"

Heh ! So much for that.

Let's start the countdown to May 2013.

Now about those Ravello Captoe MTO with Leffot....

The BB version is actually on the M-75 last (similar to Plaza). I am 100% certain of it, and it has been confirmed from an Alden rep at the Alden factory. Although it is very possible you were told Plaza by a BB worker (workers who, in my experience, know precious little about Alden shoes).



I agree that the 974 is underrated. I wear mine a lot, since I find the LWB too heavy for my use or taste. Tried the Brooks model on single sole; Maria at BB NYC said they were on the Snap Last, however... I went with the 974.

This is what I mean by some BB workers knowing precious little about Alden shoes ....

Nice pic of the 974. It's also worth noting it is built like a tank in terms of durability. nod[1].gif
