havent attempted to find a match for ravello yet

I just use a medium brown belt... Just wear your shoes when you go shopping from them. I have Alden's Whiskey belt, so can't help there... Maybe Rancourt?

A question I have been thinking about a bit recently since our Canadian $ is quickly tanking. How much of a premium would you pay for a shoe you wanted?

ie. A rarer colour of shell or model/last you have been longing for?

I have the chance to buy a pair that I have long wanted and have not seen in stores but the sellers wants nearly $150 more than what they would sell for in stores.

I haven't pulled the trigger and likely won't, but it is an intriguing question..

Other than Leffot, does anyone know of a shop that carries a Color 8 or Cigar LWB with a waterlock sole? Alden of SF appears to carry calf LWBs on waterlock but I'm really looking for shell. I love the Leffot version with the antique edge but no clue when they'll have them again. FWIW, I asked about the next pre-order and was told they do not have a timeframe as of now. Thanks.

Cigar with a waterloc is going to be near impossible to find. Even #8 with antique is quite a challenge

+1.

Leffot will hopefully do another pre-order sooner than later. I believe they did 2 pre-orders in 2013.

What a shame cigar LWB would finish me off

If you don't have to have a waterloc sole I would suggest calling Adam at AOC. He has had a few pairs of cigars on double leather (I believe) kicking around

I didn't know you had a pair. Another HUGE regret of mine. I didn't make up my mind to call ls till after work, way too slow.
Tough choice, but we need a final answer.
Unrelated note.
I didn't know you considered #4 wing tip boots so high in your list of aldens. I always hoped they would be more of a "flavor of the month" type deal. DAMMIT

The shade of #4 strikes a great balance for me. Love how its a bit darker and redder and than old Ravello.

BUT

My final answer would have to be...............

Color 8 NST Boots on the Plaza w/commando soles

Nice choice my friend. Nice choice. nod[1].gif

Looks like they were able to save this pair. Congrats

 

 

 

Any idea what caused the bubbling to begin with?

 

Was it water?

Really depends on the model. I would spend edward green money for color 4 due to the rarity. The rest of the exotics come around, just requires patience. However if it was a grail for me I would spend the extra $150.

Speaking of paying the extra $150, anybody else see the Leffot cigar indy's that went up on ebay starting at $950 today? Awesome boots and good luck to the seller, but seems a little high to me.

Fresh out of the box Alden Madison straight tip boots on Grant. With a new NAS to assemble.

Inspired by DonL, Uncle Mac, tifosi, Alcibiades, I was very pleased to get these boots with a horween stamp too. Butter soft shell surrounding my feet.
