    I hope no one is at home to witness mdubs running in and out of his house like this. I get terribly self conscious lol

    Alden Ravello LWB (Cont. Again)

    Now, as compared to the Allen Edmonds Walnut Shell Cordovan. The Strands are around 2 years old...

    Three-quarter's angle with the Alden's Ravello LWBs on the left and the AE Walnut Shell Cordovan's on the right...

    No problem... Yeah, my AE Walnut shell is a little lighter as you can see...

    Nope, just confusing the dog... :) I will admit, I get really embarrassed when taking my "family" photos... Especially because it takes so long to get all the pairs of shoes downstairs and then outside.

    Mdubs - thank you for those pictures. You have singlehandedly brought me pack into pursuing a Ravello option. Bravo.

    No. I just meant the Ravello Longwings versus my Ravello Chukkas. This Ravello appears darker in photos

    They are darker, particularly in lower light, but not much darker when actually compared against older Ravello...

    I can't remember but I think they mainly do commando due to the climate in Seattle. Shoot Yenni a note. She may still even be in

    Probably not. Knowing me I'll just put the $300 towards something more expensive.
