Nice shoes.

I have had a very similar MTO for a few years now. It is a great looking, and fitting, shoe.

Shoes look amazing - just have to do something about those jeans  :hide:

It's a double butyl sole

My very first pair of shell boots (almost two years old) and still one of my favorites.  It is definitely my current favorite shell color (at least until the burgundy/#8 boots' patina develops some more).  These definitely need some treatment as they do look a bit beat up and dirty.

The general advice is to have some V, but not too much.

 

If you have no gap whatsoever when they're new, they're bound to be too big after they're broken in. This is because your foot will sink in the footbed, the uppers will stretch a little, and you won't be able to tighten them any further without overlapping the leather.

 

Too big a V usually implies you have a high instep and/or the shoe is too narrow for your foot width. This can possibly be fixed by moving up in width (and possibly down in length as well to compensate for the new width), though for some that will lead to strange heel fit. Sadly, for some, certain lasts simply don't work for their foot.

 

I, myself, have an average width with a mildly high instep, and because of this start off with a prominent-but-not-ridiculous V. I can personally vouch for this minimizing over time. Hope that helps.

Yah thanks, had to wait a week for different size. Now that I've got my walnut strands, does anyone have thoughts on what shoes I should get next (not black)? I do prefer light color brown shoes (walnut, chili, tan) even though I know darker brown is more versatile. I only wear blue or grey trousers and blue jeans, thanks!

I'm loving the Kenilworth's -- get them in a darker brown or bourbon / etc.. they have been pairing nicely with the denim/trousers as a more casual shoe but still looking real nice.

 

I know I've seen a few other references to some more casual styled shoes .. the walnut Strands should go great with your colored Black Lapel suit.. so if you don't need anything dressy right now, stay away from the balmorals/closed lacing and go look at the others. I'm sure you will also get some good suggestions from the others.

I understand it is discontinued - at least that's what the salesman said a few weeks ago when I wore mine into the store... "You must've gotten one of the last ones!"





Very very nice and I'm insanely jealous. Thanks for sharing!

Just received a shipment notice from AE for my brown fifth streets!  I'll post pics when I get them.

Sorry, forgot to say what they were. One of the last unlined walnut ones that were sold directly by AE. The later walnut shell Daltons were definitely on the darker side.

Gotcha. I recently picked up a pair. They are an awesome boot.
