    They were from a retailer that does not have a no crease policy.

    Hate to duplicate my post from a couple days ago, but I wanted to use my better camera and natural light to show just how great these ravello cap toes came out. The quality of these shells are top notch with almost no color differentiation between the two shoes and no bad spots, brush marks or other issues that is often seen with shell. I love this shade of ravello and it has always been my favorite shell color. Kudos again to Kathy at Alden D.C. and the SF members who got this make-up done! And of course, thanks to Uncle Mac for being the inspiration for these.

    Still bullshit - why would you crease shoes you know you're not gonna keep? Makes it a huge hassle for the next buyer to have to return and the store now has a pair of non-new shells.

    I wouldn't crease shoes I knew I wasn't going to keep. I ordered a couple shoes in different sizes, with the intention of keeping the one that fit best. They looked like they'd already been tried on when I got them, and I walked on carpet only enough to determine whether they were the right size.

    I took these pictures for the enjoyment of thread followers.

    Absolutely beautiful ravello. Nice acquisition! I would die for those in a boot.

    Classic and great lookin shoes. The antique edge provides a great juxtaposition with the shell.


    Thank you, and I certainly will.


    Thank you, I couldn't be happier. A boot would be great, but for my style, I prefer the blucher as I rarely find myself wearing boots.


    Thanks! If I remember correctly, you were involved in the original order, correct?

    I have done what most people recommend --- go down 1/2 size. It worked perfectly for me. I stayed with the same TTS width.
