I've tried to pay with their new Worldpay thing and keep getting declined. So until I iron that out, I technically haven't paid yet.
I think the only differences are the types of leather used (calf vs shell) on the various Skyes.Wheeling is the "ridges" along the top of the welt.I prefer a storm welt.
