With Snapseed you can really see the different shades in the shell. My #8 PTB 990's are almost officially up for sale. Can't keep everything, or can you?

So you got them!! Awesome... Love the tones... Congrats and wear them in the best off health...

I love how the edgetrim has been busted up a bit through wear. NIce.

 

Those are just gorgeous!  I don't have any ravello and am incredibly envious.  I'm at the point in my boot collection (and also with the current prices of shell) that I am being very particular and discerning in what I buy now.  But I know that if I find a boot in ravello in my size, there will be no hesitation. 

 

I second El Argentino's comment --- a worn-in boot has so much more character (as long as you don't need it for dressier occasions).

Thanks to a great seller. I always liked the makeup and they are kind of the casual little brother to my color 8 perf cap toe boots.

I know what you mean about pull tabs. I have a pair of RMW Craftsman boots and the pull tabs get in the way of dressier, light weight trousers. As these are CXL, they'll be worn with heavier weight chinos and denim so I hope they won't bother me. Haven't been an issue yet.

So....to the only people on the planet who would appreciate this story:

I was traveling today and I was notified by UPS that my #8 straight tip bluchers arrived at my desk. One of my coworkers, clearly knowledgable of my addiction, emailed me saying that another office mate had seen the Alden box and curiosity and brought him to open it (I work in the fashion industry) and TRY ON THE SHOES.

In a frenzy, I emailed back, asking if they had been creased. They had. Mail fraud be damned, the shoes were creased by feet other than my own! I'm not sure my veins have known angrier blood....

I spent the rest of the afternoon struggling not to write scathing emails to said person, or HR.

It turns out, I had been troll'd by a skilled hand...april fools come early. The shoes were intact, unopened.

What would you have done?

You speak truth when you say we are the only people on this planet who would appreciate the story - good one, albeit too early?

Ha! A guy on one of the fountain pen forums related how his wife pulled a similar trick on him. She texted him at work to say that some limited edition pen he'd been waiting for had arrived, and that she'd opened it and inked the pen to see how it was. She said the nib seemed kind of scratchy, but she wasn't sure if she was holding it right or not. The guy practically blew a gasket! LOL.
