    Thanks! I mean i guess more along the lines of how can you tell when you have the right fit? I'm normally a 7D but I'm not sure how "snug" the boots should feel and whether my feet are in the right place.

    As long as as your feet aren't sliding around in the boot then you're good. Prob try tts and if you have to you can return and size down. Most people say around a half inch or so in the front is fine. Remember if you wear thicker socks you'll probably want that little extra room.

    I went TTS on the trench chukkas and half the time I feel like the fit is right, and the other times I feel like it is slightly too big. Maybe it just takes getting used to

    I would think somewhere north of $600 or right at it.

    CXL Wolverine 1K are about $340. Shell versions were $710.
    CXL Alden Indy Boots are about $500. Shell versions are $715.
    CXL Rancourt boots are $350. Shell versions are $675.
    CXL OSB Trench boots are $426.

    So my guess is that the shell version will be at least $700, with that being a good starting guess.

    Natural shell is way more rare though. George said horween has been saving it for him for a long time.
    Can't wait to see more info though. Is that on twitter or Instagram?

    The color looks darker than I imagined natural shell would look on a fresh pair- not that I'm complaining! Just looks more like ravello?

    Ravello is just a shade of natural CXL. Horween doesn't name them on their own, really, they let the brands name them, really just Alden. Other brands match their names to what Alden names them. You might feel that Allen Edmonds Walnut shell is very similar as well. People will argue back and forth about whether they are similar or not, and miss the reality: they each have huge range and there isn't one Walnut or Ravello.

    So, OSB has natural, it just might not have the super-pale natural that Rancourt gets. Or that pair has been sitting in light for a while and has already started to darken. Natural shell will go from a pale pink to a dark reddish brown with exposure to light.

    I was thinking everyone used their own names, with a bit of overlap (outside of the obvious, like black).

    Alden: Color 8, Color 4, Ravello, Walnut, Cigar, etc.
    Allen Edmonds: Burgundy, Walnut (definitely different color than Alden's Walnut), Brown, Dark Brown, Cappuccino, Truffle, etc.
    Carmina: Burgundy, Ruby, Cognac, Saddle, etc.
    Rancourt: Caramel, Espresso, They do use Color 8, Green, Navy, etc.
