    Not sure how legit the page is, but it provides what seems to be accurate bio's of the shell colors.

    Anyway to answer your question, #4 has half the amount of dye that #8 has, and is therefore a lighter color.

    What the hell is that object in the picture under the Whiskey description? Looks very phallic...

    And the site also says that navy is so rare, most people have ever seen it or know of it's existence. Maybe this is an old post? Navy seems to be pretty abundant lately from other shoemakers.

    sometimes ravello appears very red, almost ruby, and on other shoes, it appears very tan, almost like cognac/whiskey, is that just a difference from batch to batch, or does it start out as tan and over time darkens to red? just a bit confused, because I like the red version, but not the light tan version.

    It varies batch to batch... In my experience ravello is the rare color that varies the most. I've seen very red pairs, medium brown with reddidsh tints (my favorite), "dark whiskey" pairs and pairs that look more orange than anything else

    Dammit. There's a couple of things I'd love to get but they're a size too small. Great prices.

    Maybe he's just selling the box. That may be the next step in the mania: Shoe Box for Rare, Ravello Shell Cordovan Short Wings . BIN $745.

    Ha ha.

    Sometimes you feel pretty silly after you get the answer. That makes perfect sense.

    I share your thoughts on the image. That's a strange looking item.
