Hahahah, Indy is the best!Thanks to another member here, managed to pick up a gently worn pair of Ravello wing tip boots from a 2011 run. These are my first pair of older Ravello but the color is so much more red than recent runs and I've posted a few pictures next to my 2019 chukkas for comparison. Still have a little more work to do on these but can't wait to start wearing them.
Also, by popular demand another picture with the ever sociable Indy (unfortunately not the best picture of the boots).

He's a big ham. One of the friendliest and most outgoing cats I've met and greets me (and anyone else) at the door everyday and then follows you from room to room for the next 20 to 30 minutes. Loves nothing more than pats, attacking shoelaces and nonexistent gremlins under my bed sheets, and crushed ice. Total weirdo.Hahahah, Indy is the best!
Great boots too. The older Ravello is epic compared to a few more recent Brownvello releases. Hopefully Indy gives them a headbutt or approval.
Nice shot! What didn’t you like about the taps Shawn?Guys, I've tried toe taps but they just don't work for me. For dark edges, topy's are the way to go. The 3 8's either had taps or nothing and the toe drag was bad. Decided to go back to what I know and took the 3 8's to my cobbler. He's a guy in his 50's who spends his day flirting with all the women while his dad (original shop owner) does most of the work. The problem is that when his dad works on my shoes I have to clean the black polish residue from my shoes. A little Collonil (thanks again @smfdoc) and they clean up nicely. No product on the cigars. My normal wipe/brush after wearing them today.......

I just love me some Alden 8.
Thanks! I didn't hate the look but I didn't like it either. The topy, with dark edges, is just cleaner to me (notice that I do have taps on the cigars). Additionally every once in a while I would scrap my toe and one would come undone. Nothing major, just like the topy better.Nice shot! What didn’t you like about the taps Shawn?
You talking the plastic or metal taps? I’ve used the plastic ones before but just ordered some metal ones.Thanks! I didn't hate the look but I didn't like it either.

Lulu’s are the only way to go, those plastic and metal ones that are nailed on are a big waste IMO.I've only used plastic though I'm seriously considering thw integrated taps for my antique edge footwear. Just not sure who to use.
