Ok I must admit the things I liked about them- Sleek classic design, 3 ply leather welted sole and insole is quite comfy (more comfy than AE).
The things I hated – no attention to details, all of gilt stocks are returns form stores and online, defective shoes .
Gents I have done some research these shoes were made in Horween Shell Cordovan on 5 selected colors - Black Smooth * Burgundy * Navy * Dark Cherry * Scotch
http://www.florsheim.com/shop/duckiebrownDetail.html?styleCode=19007
So any colors other then those 5 are NOT shell cordovan.
I did pull trigger on the Navy shell cordovan at gilt today(I know even after all these) . But they are at $249. I am 100% sure the Navy pair is shell cordovan.
I was surprised that the Black Smooth wasn’t shell cordovan.

I have taken pictures of all the defective points and will email gilt tonight to get some answers.

where did you see these? im not finding it on the site

Do these run TTS? I ordered a pair of the cordovan wing tip boots in my true size, really hoping they work and the quality is not too questionable.

I tried them on quickly; sizing down a half size to 8.5 fits great. I'll post more impressions and pictures later. Off to Valentines dinners with the girlfriend!

did you order dark cherry or cordovan?

because they were a half size too big. still, after this last episode im tired of dealing with mediocre shoes. My JLs and GGs havent been getting any love recently. Just to clarify, what pisses me off is that these shoes are a fraud. They are not Shell, that is for sure, but what I do know is that these shoes were painted to represent something they are not.
