I do not think all the colors are loaded yet as it says 14 will be available

When this was launched a weeks or so ago, they claimed there'd be 11 colours, but only 8 were on the site.
Now all mention of 11 had been changed to 8.
No more Football Brown, or Gold.

Walnut MacNeils? I didn't know they had them. Except the grain version.

Sorry for the confusion. But you can just spot the BB insole. They're the chili grain.

There is/was the new walnut MacNeil. And there was an old walnut grain. I tried to get one but no luck.

I had a pair of shell seconds sent to my retail store so, I could try it on. I can attest that they fit looser/wider than calf. I compared the Cambridge to the calf Mcallister.

 



Thank you, I appreciate the info!

Does anyone have an opinion on the sizing of the shell shoes versus the calf shoes? I have heard that the shell runs slightly larger. Opinions? Thanks!

Some individuals feel that shell shoes will be ever so slightly looser than the same shoe made in calf.  The general consensus being that shell is thicker, less malleable than calf, and can not be pulled as tightly during the lasting process.  We are talking about an extremely small difference here.  Most will take the same size, in the same shoe, shell vs calf.  One thing to consider is shell will not stretch.  The sole will break in, the corkbed will settle, but the leather itself will not stretch much, if at all.  On the other hand, calf will stretch, and suede will definitely stretch.  Not sure if you are concerned with shoes being too tight or too small.  Some others can definitely shed light on their own experiences.

Thanks! These appear to be lighter than my own Bn chili grain. Must be the lighting.

Does anyone know if the bleecker street chili listed on the shoe bank site = "Bob's chili"?

Anyone think these Hale seconds should be returned? Visible striping on right shoe, not bad but visible.

If that's the only issue you found, I'd say you've got some real winners.  That will look like character over time, and will probably even out some with polishing.

I recently returned a similar pair of Walnut Clifton's recently that had striping only on one shoe. I'm waiting to see if I get a better replacement. The striping on your pair is definitely more muted than mine was, so if it were me, I'd be more inclined to keep the pair you have. They still look really nice to me.
