    This. I personally never purchased anything on the aberdeen last because I was never satisfied with the way it fit my foot. FWIW, I have no issues with RL darltons.

    Good to know, thanks! Another question, and I'm guessing the answer to this is probably no, but if anyone had any experience with this I'd appreciate it:

    Will Alden resole the shoes to a width that is not normally offered for that specific shoe? For example, If I have a #8 LWB in a C width and I want it changed to a B, will they do that? All of their LWBs that I've seen on the Barrie last are only C, D, or E width...I've never seen a B.

    The Leffot pictures make the shoes seem so much "red" than it actually appears I'm guessing? Or is it the characteristics of Ravello?
    Anyhow, great looking boots.

    I'm starting to understand why people dislike speedhooks. All my boots that don't have speedhooks have a nicer fit around the ankle.

    Ravello can look pretty red, so much so that I find that it limits what I can wear it with. For example, I have ravello plain toes that I often wear with suits, but I find that I don't like wearing it with any color shirt or tie that clashes with red (purple, for instance). When that happens I find myself reaching for my Polo/C&J dark brown cordovans.

    Speedhooks are great when you're wearing jeans, but they tear up my trousers every time.

    CHRK33,

    Is it too late to get in on the whiskey wing tip boots?

    Thanks,

    I'll be in NYC for the weekend and will be stopping by Leffot and probably the Madison Ave store, hoping to find either some chukkas or ptbs. Am I correct in thinking that I'll have the best shot at finding something at one of these two places? I'm assuming that the Madison Ave store will have the best variety of sizes (I'm interested in trying a barrie in a C as the D width is too loose in the heel).

    You should also try Citishoes on Park Avenue. They have a fairly large selection and good sizing. I walked in one day and walked out with whiskey longwings in 9.5E that they had in stock. Not an easy find.
