    My small (but growing) family:

    [​IMG]

    Back row, left to right, all #8 but dark due to poor lighting: Indy on Plaza from Frans Boone, chukkas (my first Alden), Alt Wien from Epaulet, LWBs
    Front row, left to right: Ravello NST from TSM, snuff suede chukkas, tan suede chukkas, Ravello LWBs from AoC

    I live abroad but usually go to the US once a year around Christmas, so this time four green boxes were waiting for me - the Ravello NSTs (finally!), the Epaulet Alt Wiens and the two suede chukkas. (There are shoe trees for the chukkas, I promise, just not where I took this picture.)

    Nice, Mike I just picked up the 4060 to complement my 4065 (my most worn Alden boot). Can't wait to break it in. Photos this weekend.

    Thanks Albi! Coincidentally, I just got the 4065 on Wednesday, so I have now completed my Cap Toe Boot collection, I have it in every main shade of Shell (Whiskey is from C&J though, and Navy is from AE, but someday I will get them converted to Alden's). Looking forward to seeing your photos bud!


    The Snuff Suede Indy is a fantastic boot. Yours look superb!


    Keeping it classic in your Indy Boots! Wear them in good health today!


    Tommy, you have a terrific collection going on there. I was wondering why your Ravello NSTs were unworn. I thought that we had another @tifosi on our hands, but your explanation makes sense... Enjoy your 4 new green guys!!!!


    Welcome to the thread Topp, you have a great collection going there. Joining this page is a dangerous activity... Enjoy them all in good health!

    Welcome to the forums sir!

    Would you mind expounding upon your latest acquisition of the NST boot? Am I interpreting your post correctly in that you aquired those new this year? ...I thought they haven't been produced again for years! Congraduations either way!

    When I wish upon a shooting star it's always a toss up of three things: world peace, ending global hunger, and Alden Ravello boots.

    Hey! I wore a pair of previously unworn boots, today, for your information @mdubs . They just weren't Aldens!

    The latest of Ravello NST was delivered in about Feb. of this year. I believe the OP said he only gets to the US once per year.

    I knew it..the only way to get these boots is by going back to the future! ;)

    Thank you for the info.

    thanks for the kind words gentlemen.
    Chip, get them next time.
    Outstanding boots. Great photo.
    Really nice combo sir. Killer boots.
    Sweet ptbs. I think they really showcases shell cordovan. My ravello on commando is one of my favorite pairs. Good luck with that cigar pt boot.
    Looking good dubs. Narrow grant is pure win.
    Very nice collection. Still looking for my first v-tip.
    Very nice family photo. Your ravello boots are [​IMG]
    Sweet boots sir. What was customized?
