    Wow you guys are really making me reconsider being on the list for the DC Cigar cap toe boot in favor of something Ravello. Those plain toe boots look unreal DV and I am sure the Ravello cap toe boot is going to be amazing. It must be this recent shade that has me interested like crazy.

    I think I may need to jump on more Ravello next year.

    Thanks for the kind words gentlemen.
    The boots are lighter (weight) compared to other alden boots. They're also unlined so will crease like wrapping paper.
    I was surprised the tongue is calf instead of shell. Maybe that's why these are so affordable.
    The color is very nice, I'm thrilled I got a pair.

    These are sick'ning. I for one am extremely jealous of anyone who was lucky enough to get them. Dv you wear them with class.

    Im supposed to get mine tomorrow morning in the mail. I will put up picks as soon as they come up, If they come in? UPS deliveries were cancelled for me today at work. We are getting absolutely belted with snow right now. In some areas 2 feet per hour is coming down of all Lake Effect centered on just our area.

    Not likely to ever happen again so I would just forget about them. It'll be easier for you.

    Definitely stick with the cigar boot. Ravello is my favorite shell color, but I think cigar is more versatile. Others may disagree, but I think cigar shell patina takes the top spot. The real correct answer, as always, is to get both the cigar and ravello boots.

    Obviously haha, just have to decide which would be first and which may have to wait.

    That decision is much much more difficult to make. I would always go for ravello while the getting is good. Cigar seems to be much more routine in production.
