    I don't have any experience with Carmina but I take the same size in plaza/aberdeen as AE5. Im sure others can provide some extra advice. Give theshoemart a try if you want to try on shoes but are worried about returns. Good luck!

    A Ravello Cap Toe boot is certainly starting out on the right foot.

    Aberdeen and Plaza fit pretty TTS. If you are a 10E in AE65 last, I'd try a 10E in these two Alden lasts as well as in my experience AE 65 fits TTS. Hope that helps. Others can maybe offer advice with more experience. Good luck!

    Any tips as to who has a Plaza Lasted High Boot in stock in a 9D? Not black? Need commando sole. Aside from that I'm pretty open. Yenni only has black calf NST, and J Gilbert Tan Calf NST but not on commando. Shoemart has a few but all on a leather sole.


    Any help would be great, thanks.

    I'm glad to see the thread split and like that it's going to be a new thread each year.

    I started off 2016 by doing a little bit of maintenance on my tankers and PTBs last night while I watch football.

    All that work and then I ended up wearing suede to the office this morning.

    Damn DV...thats an awesome collection of Ravello! Only thing missing is a LHS, and I would take any of yours ahead of LHS.
    I too love Ravello so much I have the Leffot Daytripper and DC Captoe on Commando. Daytrippers are slightly more comfortable with the single oiled sole.
