    black polish might alleviate this. I've scuffed my shell footwear enough times but polish (cream or wax both worked in my experience) blended it well enough for me.

    jealous of all the Ravello today....if anyone wants some Ravello in their life and can find it in their size, do not hesitate. There seems to be a Ravello shortage and it might be a while before we see any new offerings in this color shell any time soon.

    More cigar for a beautiful day in San Francisco. Stopped by Alden SF during lunch and had to restrain myself from opening the wallet....

    Thank you, having a hard time deciding between a ravello LWB and a Cigar cap toe, sadly need to choose 1.

    Depends on what you wear day-to-day, a LWB is probably more versatile. The cigar cap toe (I assume from Alden DC) is a great boot though. If I didn't get the LS cigar wing tip boot I would have bought the cigar cap toe.

    Thanks! ...and you are correct...but these are really just superficial surface scuffs and a quick brushing should eliminate them...I think they are from banging on my chair at work

    Good to hear the scuffs are less severe in real life. All these recent shell 'injuries' recently... Will definitely be more mindful of my shell bal boots... the rugged look do not match them as well as on Indy's.

    +1. I have this problem and steel taps make them go away. If you're in America, Nick does good work.

    As someone with no cigar, what would be a better first shoe: Cigar cap toe blucher on the plaza, or cigar chukka on the barrie?

    The plaza cap toe you speak of sounds sexy, but personally i'd get more use out of the chukka. My style is 95% casual though.

    I don't own any chukkas which is why I'm interested in them, but I dont know how to wear them or what to wear them with.
