 They look new, but not particularly great quality. If if bothers you, might as well exchange for another pair.
 That's $139.50 off per pair if this includes the Independence Collection...
 Kahuna, since Shaker Heights is your best fit, can you share your size and sizes of other popular shoes/boots (calf 5-65s, Daltons, etc.)?
 Wow, it's hard to knock AE's shell finishing after seeing this recraft!
 Of my 9D 1-511 shoes, my Shell Daltons fit well, my Calf Daltons are a tad more snug, my Finches are a tad narrow, and my Sheltons are way narrow.
 BTW, your link specifically mentions both: "[bloo-ker, -cher]"
 Thanks, Patrick. I assume "Distilled White Vinegar, 5% Acidity" is the right stuff? I guess in hindsight I'm glad my Greek salad didn't have balsamic vinaigrette. ;) Would you do the whole shoe for consistency, or just the one panel? Also, should I be concerned that they'll smell afterward, and if so how would I combat that?  Thanks, I think I'll try this after the vinegar if for no other reason than to condition after all the rubbing.
I had a little accident with some new (to me) Allen Edmonds Sanfords in Whiskey Shell. I found that a stray onion from my oily Greek salad had latched on to the side and made a very dark spot. I tried to work it would with some Renovateur (the Beaute du Cuir version), but it didn't seem to have much of an effect even after waiting overnight. Unsure if the stain was more from oil or just more of a "watermark", I put a wet piece over paper towel over the area to hopefully...
 A few of my shell seconds have come without the seconds mark. Anyone else notice this. Is it a matter of them missing a step in the process of moving something from first to second? Does it imply a return that relegated it to second?
 I always wondered about this. First, I don't own any black shell. But I always thought that since it's super glossy -- like well-polished calf or plastic-coated patent leather but made out of much higher quality skin -- that it should be the exact right material for black formal shoes. What's preventing that, the waviness?
