post #38956 of 91656

Does anyone know if shoes sitting in stores for a long time will effect the leather's color/quality? When I see pictures like this, it makes me question if it's bad photography or just an uncleaned pair of shoes.

 

 

 

edit: ^ you're welcome :P

Ravello Brixton was a pre-order only, so it's doubtful that they will have any extra stock on that one. It's at about 23 months now I think.

Over time #8 and cigar get lighter and ravello and whiskey get darker. So to answer your question, yes time and sunlight affect the color/shade of shell. It is possible that the shoes you posed could be ravello or even aged whiskey shell.

edit: on closer inspection someone could have also used a polish too dark for that specific shell and have changed the shade/hue slightly. IMO anyway.

^ Very interesting, I've known that most leathers tan, but didn't know the cigar/#8 would lighten up. The shoes I posted are Whiskey colored, I believe they've probably been sitting at the store for quite some time. 

 

Is there any way to prevent the whiskey/ravello shell from darkening too much?

Is this normal/acceptable with Alden or is my ocd kicking in proper? Seems to skip two holes leaving a bit of looseness therein.

i'd say something like that is pretty normal with Alden QC. Alden quality is great, their Quality Control is far less than great.

Epaulet also did a ravello semi-brogued captoe pre-order this February. But that's merely 10 months.

Thank you Dr. D and my brother who browses this forum quite often.  I ordered mine in a 7D.

I'm wondering if it'll be more liable to break since its not in there tight. Not sure if I should keep or exchange for something that small.
