I think they're dark, but unsure.

i have one question/issue about this. i find that its a lot harder to discern the fit on carpet. at least in my apartment, i find the carpet is thick enough that the padding from it can make an overly loose shoe feel like its a better fit than it actually is. i find much easier to get a sense of fit wearing it in the uncarpeted kitchen or bathroom.

These look great!

I was lucky enough the get the last 8.5D; can't wait to see them. I'm especially intrigued to see how the shoe looks with the brass eyelets in person.

Thank you so much for the quick response! Will try this out this week on my Cigar Captoes. 1st pair of Grant last so I am anxious to feel how they fit

I was speaking with Alden DC about the captoe cigar boot on the grant last. Currently I wear an 8.0d in the Barrie an 8.5d in the plaza. Although I wish the plaza were a little bit tighter, the Barrie works for me very well. Any ideas on how the grant would compare?

What last were ravello's on? I couldn't find them on the website.

I wear the same size in the Plaza and Grant

You may be able to wear 8 in the grant if you wish the plaza was tighter... I myself size up in grant, but I have wider feet. If you have narrower feet, you may be able to do grant in the same size as barrie.

^ i like including the decimal point for 8.0

has anyone had any issue adding a topy to a double waterloc sole? wondering about the oil in the leather causing an issue with the adhesive. i'm gonna need to do something, i almost busted my tail today on slick marble after walking on the wet sidewalk

I wear an 8d in the Barrie and have their Cigar captoe in an 8d on the way to me currently. I would have bought the 8.5d also to try if they had it. I will certainly let you know how it works out for me.
