I would then focus on the leather soled one in my opinion. Or maybe even look a naval cap at leffot

I regularly wear mt plaza last #8 PTBoot/commando sole with suits. I think the plaza last, even with the light commando sole, looks better with suits than my barrie last boots. The commando sole is barely noticeable, unless your sitting with your legs crossed, feet dangling in the air.

Nice dbear! These are my current all time faves as well.

Those are dope Dbear, i get scared to wear my cap toes with anything but a suit. Just cause if I'm wearing jeans I'm doing something that can scratch cordovan, no way to live!

Lol mine are pretty scratched up if you look closely, especially on the speed hook part. I will brush them every 20 wears or so no worries

I agree with the other posters -- the commando is barely noticable unless you lift up your foot. The sole's edge is leather and the rubber portion is very thin. Go with whichever sole you prefer for comfort or practicality. If versitility is the ONLY concern, go leather.

I just pre-ordered the Leffot Naval Boot. I already have two Grant-lasted captoes with commando soles so I figured I'd go with something a little different for my black boot. Granted (pun) , I doubt I'll wear them with a suit...at least not to the office.

With all the great and recent Ravello chukka pictures that I have been so jealous of I forgot that a few of them came from Alden NYC. They now have one less pair in stock, I just took the last ones in 9.5D, THANK YOU! cheers.gif

Thanks for the info. I only started buying aldens in 2010. I hear of older shades of ravello and whiskey, I've always wondered what they would look like in real life.

Ravello captoe boots from Unionmade Goods

Just continue to follow the thread and some ravello will pop up

All this and still no Ravello Brixton from Epaulet, which was ordered 25 months ago now. Which makes me wonder, how long were those other retailers waiting for these recent models that just came in over the past few months? Or, were their orders bumped up over Epaulet?

something to consider - i found the commando sole + black combo to be too militaristic, much preferred the double leather soles on black boots

Great looking! A month or tow ago I tried to order those. They had the 8D available and when I went to order the next day they were gone...
