There's something about shell that's difficult to appreciate until it's been worn (and beaten up) a bit. I have a pair of shell Alden that I babied when I first got them but now use them as total beater boots and they're awesome. I was recently working with a guy who was wearing a pair of thrifted shell alden derbies and everyone was asking him what they were. And almost all of those people were wearing really awesome Carpe Diem.
