Same people in the #8 LWB sweepstakes are probably the same one's buying these shoes.

Now, I may be able to get a cigar LWB or a Ravello. I just need one for now and my rotation is set. Which is more versatile?

Cigar - by far - in my estimation.

I'd say it depends on whether or not you plan to get a #8. If so I'd pass on the Cigar. They are quite close these days. I'd get Ravello.

Yep. That includes me. Missed out on the LWB but was able to get on this one. Now I am done with color 8. I am on a list for whiskey PTB and a pre-order (2-1/2 year and counting pre-order) for cigar Indys. Once those come in I should be done with shell. Possibly. Maybe.

Got a pair of naval boots. Remembered a few years ago I really wanted a naval boot in black and a leathersoul jumper in color 8. Never ended up getting either but I'm ready to try color 8 shell again, maybe I'll like it more this time with antique edge

I suspect we will start seeing a secondary market on e-bay for these shoes, there is simply too much money in it at this point...

Holy shit that's crazy.

Really?

I don't plan on the 975 but may eventually get a WT color 8 boot on Plaza.

Ravello looks farther away from color 8 than cigar, covering a diff end of the spectrum to my eyes.

What's your logic?

Thanks for your input.

You're comparing a dark, fairly tame and dressy PCT boot to an LWB shoe.  It will be different enough as an LWB shoe, so pick the color you like better.  Ravello or Cigar are both awesome looking in an LWB.  And then as for WT boot, again - it's different enough if you just get the color that appeals to you the most.

It remains to be seen, but I don't think these boots are being purchased for eBay sake. They aren't showing up on the secondary market. I believe there is just legit demand for them.
