    These are gorgeous. You'll love how they evolve over time and care. Care-wise, just brush them thoroughly after wear, and use a little Venetian or Reno when they look a bit dry. Enjoy! One of my favorites.



    I believe I can safely say I would kill for a pair of those boots.

    Contact Tom at Leather Soul. Leather Soul has a lot of experience with the Plaza last and I think would be the most likely to do it as long as you stick with calf or #8.

    I'm with you on that, but I'd have a pipe going as well.

    Pretty sad i didn't get the Leffot #8s with antique edgetrim. how hard is it to have the dark edgetrim changed to antique? anybody know how much it costs? If it's not a big deal, I'd just buy a used pair of regular #8 longwings...

    My input on that is that the antique edge trim does tend to accentuate the clunkiness of the shoe so that's something to be aware of.

    I've compared a color 8 LWB and Ravello LWB with antique edge trim and with the same with black edging and the black always seems to look sleeker. Just my thoughts.

    In terms of your question I've heard that somebody has sanded off the black edging with a sander and then treated with natural clear edge treatment, however on such expensive shoes I don't know if I would attempt that on my own. Perhaps a good cobbler could do it for you?

    I just got the antique color 8s. They look awesome, but I agree, my most "sleek" looking cordo longwing are probably my ravello with dark brown edge trimming
