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 have. They are beautiful.

They are not shell, although I can see the photos could lead you to think so. The leather seems to be a custom brown calfskin that I haven't seen used very much on AE shoes.

Are you a size Small? I noticed the same thing. I added four to my cart and it showed "in stock" and then at the last step of check-out just under the product name it said "11/11/14" so I didn't order. A few hours later it said "7/14/14" so again I didn't order. When I tried the same for Medium it showed "in stock" throughout. Unfortunately that's not my size.

Interesting.  Well regardless, they look great.

I think we all know what the answer is. :stirpot:

Yes, I am an 8D so size Small is what I went with

I thought so, as well, MWS, but if you look closely at the very tip of the toe, you can see pores. I have never seen a shell toe with visible pores, so although these shoes are a really nice makeup, I think that they might be regular old calf.

Your browser must be clearer than mine!  They look remarkably smooth and shell like on my screen.

PSA on this topic. Call or email Kristle at the jeffersonville outlet if you are interested in a brown shell belt. smile.gif

Hey guys,

 

I ordered two pairs of shoes from the 2 for $250 seconds sale awhile ago, and I finally got in touch with the Shoebank today because the RL Singletons didn't fit me, so I'm looking to exchange them for something else for $125. Currently I have PAs in black, Strands in walnut, and some spectators, Looking to see if you guys can help me decide,

 

- FA (Black, Walnut)

- Neumok (Snuff suede)

- MacNeil (Black grain)

- MacNeil (Blk/Plaid, what does this mean?)

- Neumora (Black)

- Sanford (Black, Walnut)

- Sanderson (Tan)

- Elgin (Tan)

- McTavish (Brown)

- Long Branch (Brown)

 

I really want the Neumoras but is that 333 last the same as the 5 last? From what I've read it seems like I'd have to size down. Which shoes would you guys choose out of that list? Long Branch?

I asked last week and the rep I spoke to said it won't happen again for a long time...not sure if he just wanted the sale and didn't want me to wait..
