Well, shell are my go to bad weather shoe (both Marlow and CJ for BB cordovan boots plus rider shell chukka). Upper is just fine after some cream and hitting with the brush. I'll definitely resole the bottom with dainite this time around, Nelson or CJ. Heel is all gone, I got lazy and topy the front half way, so it's in OK condition. I walk a lot in general though, easily over 10 miles over a week.
