Haha!!! Yes, I definitely did.

I believe these shoes in question are vintage, bought used from eBay...

I can't wait to see your pictures!
 
I ordered mine on the very first day of their availability. When I saw a Shell Jefferson I had to have it. I love my Jeffersons and all of my Shells, so it was "Self Evident" that I had to have this shoe. (Some may get that, some may not)
 
I tracked them this morning, and they are set to arrive today. Pictures to come as soon as they show up.

I already have walnut calf McAllisters but they are the wrong size 11.5D. After a whole lot of weightloss my foot had settled in to its new size, in the 5-last that's now a 10E.

If anyone needs some calf shoes in 11.5D let me know!

If I buy a shell Leeds with black edge, can the edges be sanded down to reveal a natural edge? I like the look of the natural more and I can get it a pretty good price now.

I have seen that done before, so yes it is possible. I, personally, would not try it myself.

BTW...what type of jeans are those?

Can someone explain the following terms?

 

1) Wheeled welt

2) Split welt

3) Reverse welt

 

Been seeing these terms a lot recently.

TJ,

 

Here are the answers to your questions.

 

1) Here is a picture showing wheeled. Essentially it puts little lines along the top of the welt. Regular welts typically just have the stitches showing.


Regular Welt Example: Allen Edmonds Park Avenue or McAllister

Wheeled Welt Example: Allen Edmonds Jefferson (or any Independence Collection Shoe)

 

 

2) Split Welt - The welt line disappears (magically) typically under the heel of the shoe. This picture decently depicts the concept. Note that the stitching disappears once it hits the heel area.

 

Regular (360 degree) Welt Example: Allen Edmonds Park Avenue or McAllister

Split Welt Example: Alden Tasseled Loafers (Style # 563) (Sorry, that was the first one I found like this in my closet).

 

 

3) Reverse Welt - There is a vertical piece to the welt that is stitched to the upper. Typically seen on slightly less formal shoes (Longwings, Chukkas, etc.)

 

Regular Welt Example: Allen Edmonds Park Avenue or McAllister

Reverse Welt Example: Allen Edmonds MacNeil or Dundee

 

 

Hope that this helps.

 

-Mike
