BG, do not worry my friend, the leather has been confirmed and they should be in production as we speak. Alden NYC also got a run confirmed, although I believe their design is on the Commando sole.
The statement that there is no Ravello coming for years is merely a sensationalistic statement designed to promote their sale.
I will state that it is unlikely that Ravello designs will be sitting on shelves in the coming years simply due to the demand exceeding the supply and it is likely most runs will be pre-sold out.
