    ^ Must be my lucky day. I added a Ravello 9.5D to my cart and they had it in stock. Looks like all other sizes (incl. all the #4's) are sold out.

    It's Barrie last, double leather sole. Is that a bad combo for a wingtip boot? Seems like most folks here prefer it in Plaza/Grant with double waterlock/commando. Curious to know if this is a "good" boot combo.

    If your barrie size is 9.5D then I say buy it. Ravello is basically gone for the rest of the year. Whatever is out there now is all that is left for awhile. 2013 at the least, and I've heard grumblings of 2014

    ^ Barrie 9.5D fits me well in my LWBs, though the toe is a tad blobby. I was more curious about whether a double leather sole is appealing for a boot, but I suppose on the first re-sole, I can switch to double waterlock/commando?

    Thanks guys!

    Alden no longer will change the sole during restoration. So if it is double leather soled going in, that is what you'll get it back as. You can send it to B. Nelson for a sole change if you wish.

    That is a wonderful combo provided you get the right fit. I have the same boot and love it. Incidentally, you can count me among those for whom the Barrie last fits quite nicely. Great choice for an Alden makeup.

    LOL...this must be where Alden's allotment of ravello hides has been allocated. Ravello orthopedic shoes.
