I narrowly missed shell Dalton Friday... During the shell sale I didn't think I could justify two $299 purchases, so went with burgundy shell Patriots. Then I started kicking myself for not getting shell Daltons for that crazy price. By the time I went back to get some, they were all gone.
Then I noticed a pair of burgundy shell Daltons back on the seconds list (for $549, of course). I emailed Kristle of J'ville and asked if I could see them for $299 to decide which pair to keep. I now have both and am considering keeping both. Still need to try on the Daltons, but if they fit well I think I will have lucked into a second $299 pair after the buzzer.
I think we all know what the answer is.
