    Uncle, thanks!

    I used Alden Defender on them last night per your strong endorsement. Just got back from a rainy lunch; there's still a few welts, nothing some brushing can't handle, but definitely less welting than I've experienced pre-Defender. The Defender also had no visible effect, so far as I could tell. Thanks!

    I can't believe the power of this forum until I posted about seeing this particular make-up of ravello. It is a really beautiful make up....

    I am aware of the Mac Method for polishing but can someone please point me to the one for break-in? Thank you.

    the break in method

    1-wear the shoes three separate times for at least one hour
    2-walk only on carpeting
    3-after the completion of the three wearing, you should be able to ascertain if the fit is appropriate

    See FAQ in my sig. If anyone has a better idea on where to put this, let me know. Still looking for additions! Want to add photos of all the different sole and edge trim options.
