    agreed! to me, the u-tip is much more appealing that the NST. If there were a shell Utip boot (or a non tru-b indy shell indy boot) t'would be an instakop

    Frans Boone in Holland. Prices reflect an international store peddling US-made product, but that ravello is sweet -- and fortunately out of my size, lest I get tempted even at that price....

    Angle of photo and distance of photo. Closer distance/wider angle = roundness is accentuated.

    You can be amazed at the difference a single leather sole and flat welt makes in a shoe vs. double leather and storm welt.

    My one experience with a U-tip (shoe, not boot) wasn't great, as the shoe broke in it had funky creases, etc. Thought I was going to love them but I ended up dumping them. [Didn't Tom make up a plaza lasted Indy? It was admittedly less ugly than the Trubalance Indy but there was plenty of ugly left...]
