I did get super excited for about 1/100000 of a second. Seeing ravello wingtip boots was great but as soon as I saw the color 4, I realized I was either dreaming or it was a cruel joke. I wanted to believe that maybe a restock was imminent (they're just tweaking the site) but this seems really doubtful. Though there is always hope, given the recent Bigfoot-Rainbow-Shell-Blowout.
I went ahead and called the Shoe Mart and spoke with Ed, who was very gracious. I was told that they are anticipating approximately 24 pairs of ravello wt boots sometime in the winter or early spring. Needless to say, they've all been promised away. Nonetheless, I went ahead and asked to be put on ravello stand-by, hoping that some nice fella in 8.5D or E will pass up a unicorn and throw it my way (I did have the fortune of grabbing the ravello longwing from Kathy at A-DC this fall, so why not go for the ravello double trouble?). Fingers crossed, even if delusionally.
