    I have both of the cordovan boots, and like them a lot. I'm not a fan of the suede.

    The Ravello shell cordovan boots are wonderful. The tan suede ones are a bit...off somehow.

    After joining this forum I dislike any footwear that lacks a pinched waist. Having said that, those pics are janky. Look at these: [​IMG] [​IMG] posted on the pron thread by benjamin831
