Alden Ravello Chukka Boots
I think that you could argue that the nicest pattern for showcasing Shell Cordovan has to be the Chukka Boot. Its simple design and lines provide the ultimate surface for allowing the true beauty of the material to come out. Its pretty hard to find a piece of Shell Cordovan more glorious than Ravello. These Chukka Boots definitely do not disappoint.
These Ravello Chukka Boots are the classic variant from Alden, made around the Barrie Last with a Double Leather Outsole and two hidden eyelets. This variant of the Ravello Chukka from my friends at Alden of San Francisco, feature Dark Mahogany edges. The Ravello on this particular run is just splendid, as its the nice classic medium brown with a strong red undertone. I don’t know of many shoes that can give these Chukkas a run for their money.
