Many whiskey models would be a bit lighter in color, with more of a butterscotch hue - but certainly the two colors have similarities.

So if anybody was interested in this comment thread, I got a response back from AE customer service. The shoes are gone. Let this be a lesson: If you see a Webgem that you like, BUY IT, because AE can and will pull them at their discretion.

Always a good decision. fistbump.gifBut in all seriousness, any of the models you mentioned would have looked nice.

I am considering a walnut shell Leeds. I have PM'd the CEO and await his reply

This is good advice. And, beyond webgems, it ceratinly applies to hard-to-find shell models.

2) there is a crack on the back heel tab. Should I color it in with meltonian, or should I return the shoes? They were pretty cheap and are in spotless condition otherwise:




Yep - Probably 75% of 5-lasted shoes I have ever ordered - including the Kenilworth - have had this issue. And almost all of said 75% have been returned. Most recently it was an otherwise wonderful pair of Jeffersons in Walnut Calf.

It is confusing and troubling all at once.

I have never had this issue with any other AE lasts.

+1, I'm hoping someone from AE can get back to me before the sale is up. If I don't get a boot in the walnut I'm will probably order the chili Daltons.

You are welcome.

In the interest of full disclosure, I actually probably prefer the walnut (shhh ... don't tell my Alden brethren).

And .... speaking of lighter brown shell colors, Carmina's "saddle" is sublime.

I asked if they would be put back up.  This is the response:

 

Unfortunately not at this time. They did have some manufacturing problems with this, so they are going back to the work board on this shoe to try and fix the problem.

 

Does that mean my order is going to be cancelled?

No they will be filling all the orders placed under special manufacturing to ensure they will not have a problem.

 

According to CS, next webgem is going to be released at the end of May.

I had asked the same question in my e-mail, and this is what I got;

Dear Sir:


We apologize for any inconvenience.   These shoes can no longer be ordered.  If you have any further questions please call toll free 800.235.2348 and speak with one of our representatives.

 

Sincerely,

(name omitted for privacy)

 

the e-mail I received seemed a little more final than yours, but I guess it's all the same.

Hi. Can anyone comment on the fit of the RL Sanderson compared to a AE #5 last shoe? I've been informed by AE that it is built on the #3 last however I've seen posts stating it is on the #2 last. On the #3 last I size down (similar to #5) however for the #2 I am TTS. Looking for some advise, as I am not aware of any options where I live to try them on. Thanks.

Now, off to my meetings while ruminating on which shell shoes to hurry up and order. I wish everyone a productive day.

... And here they are... Love that fast shipping!

Side note: not much paste wax to try to remove - maybe they are listening!

I found that it fits similarly, but is a tad bit narrower.

Thanks! By your estimation, go with whatever size I am on a #5 last? I assume it is slightly narrower in the toe box area?

In the second place, it's good to hear about their light hand on the paste wax.

In the first place -- those look fantastic! I just pulled the trigger on some burgundy shell MacNeils; I wonder if Mr. Grangaard's offer might persist for another few months of ramen-and-PBJ diet so I can afford a pair of 14AAA walnut shell Patriots...
