The amount of time even your favorite pair of shoes spends on your feet is very small versus the time they spend in storage. Even if one owned 2 pairs of shoes and wore one pair 12 hours every other day, the ratio of storage time to worn time would be 3 to 1. For SF members, the ratio is MUCH higher. THIS is why it's smart to make that "Tree Time" count! If the trees fit tightly, that's the shape they'll take. If they're loose, and the vamp is left flexed, THAT's the shape they'll take... especially with shell.

Nice! Is that the 'Rain' last?
They look a bit sleeker to me but it could just be the pic.
Good progress in your collection smile.gif

having a couple hundred pairs in the rotation is yr best bet.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

 

IMO the rippling is inevitable and part of the attraction, but it means shell's better for rustic/casual wear, and I'm not likely to buy any more.

These look fabulous-  the 202 is the most English of lasts-  but what do u mean the burnishing was chestnut?

Supplychainman, 

 

Great collection! Can you confirm that the Carmina's are the rain model? I am looking at building my collection and taking that step up to either carmina, dc lewis or a c&J. (long term g and g!).

That's right, I made a new "patina". Chestnut is too clear and finally not so easy to wear.
The burgundy allows some interesting nuances, by alternating burgundy/mahogany cream with navy or brown.

My kind of single malt whisky: Horween's whisky shell cordovan in derby form by Alfred Sargent. Last 99, double leather soles and a contrasting mid-brown welt colour.

For Moo, I'm sure these are merely "rentals".
