Shined up the park avenues a couple days ago. Got these off of ebay for $110, lightly used. :satisfied:

Cappuccino Shell Jeffersons. Started the Mac Break-in method on my Cap Shell Jeffersons today at work. The lambskin lining is much softer and more comfortable than I remembered when I tried on a regular pair at the store. Hope that you enjoy!

Have a good night all!

Very nice looking Park Avenues.

So you can wear your shell boots in the snow. Of course you can!

The issue is what you want out of them and potentially picking the right tool for the job. Wolverines are work boots and should be treated with obenaufs. I wouldn't do that to my daltons. I can't afford to throw down for another pair like some posters can, so I have other beater boots.

Why not pick the right tool for the job? Carry the boots with you to work and switch out of your tims/bean boots/whatever when you get there. I don't baby my shoes, but I'm definitely going to reach for a different pair of shoes to wear to work if it's going to be raining/snowing the entire way. Or I'll wear the daltons and catch the bus to the subway station instead of walking through the muck.

Gorgeous.

 

I was wondering if the toe of your shoes is a little more squishy that your calf or non independence shells. I asked this question regarding my MTO strands a few pages back, but no responses. The toe seems pretty flexible which seems odd to me and I thought maybe it has to do with the lining.  Thanks!

I assumed an 8.5D simply wouldn't work. Again, they haven't arrived yet, but it's possible I'll have something that works well for you. I'll certainly get back to you.

Yeah, these are tough to size. I believe the D widths won't work for anyone with regular width feet. However, the EEE widths all have some serious heel slippage, though I think that's acceptable in a slipper. The 8.5EEE fit okay, but they're a tad tight, possibly from overly thick sheerling. The 9EEE is arguably a better fit for me, though this particular pair has more sheerling in the right vs. the left which makes the fit a bit off, and the stitching/finishing is a little sloppy. I'm trying to decide between the 8.5EEE and the 9EEE but I'm just not sure yet.

Fit is perfect! On the 5 last I'm an E. But on the 1 last I stayed true to the length but went down a width (D) based on how my MTO Dundees fit.

Anyone have fit pics of daltons with jeans? I would primarily be wearing them casually...

Hey Teal, Mike should be able to tell you more, but in the meantime I'll say that I don't think it's related to Independence lining. My stock shell cordovan Daltons had the same soft toe. Unfortunately I've read that it can lead to some odd creasing.

Ps - how are you liking the McAllisters? Also I know I owe you a pm!

Great looking makeup!  The color looks significantly darker than my Cappuccino Macallisters.  I like that shade a lot!
