  Yes that would be it....
Great looking boots!....and it reminds me I need to order the candy cane laces for my green neumoks...
 It is funny you say that as my first experience to shell was buying some 20+ year old black shell Hanovers and a pair of old 20+ burgundy shell Florscheims both virtually no shine...so when I saw AE's shell it looked normal to me and the first time I went to the Alden thread all I could do was say to myself why do people want to wear those vinyl looking shoes for. Still when I see some of the pairs of Alden..especially the wingtips they look like plastic shoes to me...so...
