Pretty sure they're $299. Just call them. They're swamped by us weirdos sending them emails (me included).

For what it's worth, I use one brush for all my shoes and have not noticed one iota of color transfer or other ill effects.  All calf shoes; colors: black, brown, chocolate, bourbon, merlot, light brown, cognac; products: AE cleaner/conditioner, AE premium shoe polish in all the aforementioned colors, light brown AE shoe cream and caranuba wax polish in brown, black, burgundy and neutral.  I try to use different sections of my polishing cloth for each color but that's it.

I popped my shell cherry today...:wow:

 

Burgundy Cambridges; if it's as transformative an experience as I've been reading it is (or can be), I am ready. 

 

Now... to read up on the Mac Method. (tips or tricks outside of Mac would be happily received, however!)

 

Of course, i'll be scouring the past posts for more info on care... VSC already on hand to greet them; got AE cordo cream for extra measure. I heard they are in good shape, so I am eager to see/feel in person.

 

Any owners of the Cambridge have thoughts to share on it? Very few reviews on the AE site - wondering if that's a sign.

Just want to show the difference between the Russet Brown Krause Boots (size 9) and the 721 LTD Boots (size 8.5) side by side. The Krause is much softer but the shell looks really nice.

  Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Are those the 721s that just went on the 'bay?

Yes the 721s should be very nice and soft once you wear them, break them in, and brush them as required.

The Krause was something I had thought about a few times, but I couldn't bring myself to it.

I always felt that the Krause was a bit overpriced for what you are getting compared to other Wolverine 1Ks.

It isn't that it is too expensive in general. Just overpriced.

No, the one on ebay is not mine. But I did put the Krause on the marketplace because the 1000 mile boots run about half size larger than the other AE that I have.

Congrats! On what is your first but soon to be many pair of shell shoes :D 

 

Great choice, I try not to have any favorites but the Cambridge is one that I will usually go to when I want to step it up a notch.

So how long does it generally take them to process orders once the sale starts?  I've been waiting for that charge to hit my account all day.

Just got the phone call from Allison at the Maine store confirming my order for the Brown Shell Jeffersons. She said she had them in front of her, they are "beautiful", and she has no idea why they are 2nds. 

 

 

Now....do I also spring from the burgundy shell Macneils? 

 

One purchase I can maybe justify...but two? 

 

Decisions, decisions......

I love the color on the shell.  It almost looks like a saddle.

I own the New Orleans in walnut (not interested in the shreveport) and I love the fact that the woven part is impervious to creasing after several months of wear.

 

What do you guys think of the woven styles?

I think for the Shreveport WICaniac is pretty close with his statement.

As to the other woven shoes I have the Strawfuts and love them. Although I do see them better suited from SC and further South and that is what I purchased them for. Strawfuts > Mn. > month of May = not so much

 

In the heat of summer (which is for a couple of weeks) they do get worn and I really like them a lot.

Usually upon shipment.

Nice, 15/120. They looked toned down; matte finished.  Do you use grey creme polish on them? Mine are kinda shiny compared...
