    Superb, enjoy wearing them! Keep them both & don't look back for this isn't a thread of frugality. Here's my ravello vs. #4 pictures under various lighting conditions…

    Indeed.
    It blows my mind that some one's even questioning whether to keep the #4s.

    wow, those color 4 boots are stunning. keep them for sure.

    i've seen a lot of variation in the ravello color. sometimes more reddish (like color 4) and sometimes more brown (like a light cigar). in these pics they look like the latter, so i think there's enough difference to justify keeping them both. i also prefer the all eyelets and the black piping is nice.

    i have a pair of ravello wt boots on pre-order from epaulet. been looking forward to them for a looong time.

    Well said. Maybe the captoe would've been a better purchase, but these look great, and with #4 you take what you can get if you're that lucky. Love the all eyelets on the #4 boot, now let's see a pic of those in action.

    Too much liability since there are confounding variables that cannot ensure accurate conversions. One of the reasons I mainly stick to 2 to 3 brands for the majority of my shoes, once I know the last and the fit, I'm set.
