    My second pair of #8 LWB. Scored on the bay for a song. My other pair has agatine eyelets, so I intend to put topys or commando soles on them and make them my bad weather 'wings.
    Here's the second pair in different lights at home earlier and out about town just now.

    I went to get new heels on my Cigar Indys and the cobbler talked me into a new approach. Damn! I like them.

    Hi fellas,

    I think Shoemart got their Ravello Chukkas in. I did a pre order and was told I would not be charged until the shoes are in. I just got an email with an invoice and order number.

    awesome...i realize your shoes cost more than the rimowa (right?), but somehow i can't justify a purchase of luggage costing that much. I suppose it depends how much travel one does.

    annoyed at shoemart...ordered some ravello LHSs, card charged and shipping number given but tracking status never updated--then on the expected day of DELIVERY, got the classic email from shoemart saying their inventory was wrong, they never really had the shoes, they are crediting back on the card.

    Sorry to hear about your experience. So far, all of my Aldens from Shoemart were flawless transactions. Hoping it doesn't change *knock on wood*

    It appears they are in stock: http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-me...d-13750_ald_m_chukka_boot_shell_cordovan.html
