    Ryan-
    If they are sized like your other barries, did you just wear them and get acclimated to the fee?

    Which store? My ravello AoC lwb feel like they are lasted much looser compared to other pairs of barrie I have as well. Also inner leather lining is a bit wavy which would seem to indicate shoe wasn't pulled fully tight? Lwb have fit slightly larger in my experience but recent pair feels extra large

    Now I need to decide if I'm going to return the whiskey or sell the Ravello and keep the whiskey :)

    I would return the shoes. Much less hassle.

    Also, this has been mentioned here before (but probably not often enough - after a few years, even whiskey that was originally light in color will darken to a ravello reddish-brown.

    Yup, same size just got used to it. It's not a big deal really unless I have very thin socks on.

    It would be interesting to see a picture of a 5+ year old ravello next to a 5+ year old whiskey. I'd imagine the variation would not be very significant.

    Yeah, but that aside I find it much easier to just return the shoes than I do to sell them. I don't need tontake pictures, write up a description, and wait for someone to realize I have a package of awesomeness...

    Agree here... especially since your whiskey isn't typical whiskey

    I can't post a photo right now but I can state that a 5+ year old whiskey longwing is indistinguishable from a 2-3 year old ravello wingtip boot.
