Alden Ravello PTBs (2018)
The Plain Toe Blucher (PTB) is about as classic of a shoe as one can find. It is simple, clean and very dynamic. Alden’s actually offer’s two different types of PTBs, the “Wholecut” and the “Dover”.
These Ravello Shell Cordovan Plain Toe Bluchers are of the Wholecut variant and were offered by Alden of San Francisco. They feature the very classical configuration of the Shell Cordovan PTB; being made around the Barrie Last, having a Split-Reverse Welt, and a Double Leather Outsole. They are the more formal Ravello variant as they feature the darker Mahogany edges.
This is my second pair of Ravello PTBs, as I needed to get my correct sizing in them. Additional pictures are available after the break.
