    Please help convince me that I need the Alden SF PTB in Ravello and not the Cigar. I already have the Cigar LWB and a Cigar Indy on order. Do I need some Ravello in my life? What is the edge trim on the Ravello?

    I have not seen Ravello first hand. Is it anything like the Cognac shell of the Brunello Cucinelli PTB (beautiful shoe but $2200!)?

    Thanks
    Jason

    Agreed, the contrast laces really catch the eye. And thank you!


    Awesome! I'm still without a shell make up. I need to fix that. Safe travels.

    Thank you, sir! I am enjoying some of the local water north of the border. Have a great holiday!

    I have shell PTBs in color 8, color 4, ravello, cigar, and black. The ravello PTB is one of my favorites. You should buy them, They are not available very often.

    The Alden shell captoe blucher is one of my favorite Alden models. This model is not available in cigar very often.

    I have both the Alden for BB black unlined LHS and the color 8. They are my two "go-to" models.

    That's the good news, the bad ..... I can't believe I missed the color 4 shoemart boots AGAIN.
    Bless you if you bought the barrie 10 ds, and please let me know if you have buyers remorse.
    I have lots to be thankful for, Happy Thanksgiving.

    I am thinking or ordernig a pair of Roy boots, but am wondering about durability. I plan on wearing whatever boots I buy for the next ten years or so. I don't mind resoling after 3 years or so, but I wonder if the crepes will last even that long. But more importantly, some of the pics seem to show significant wear to the CXL uppers even after a few months.

    What do you all think? If I take care of them, will they last for ten years?

    Thanks.
