Namor to be fair I think the problem was on Gilt's end in this latest instance. they didn't describe these shoes as shell, as far as I know. now, as I said before I never buy from Gilt anymore b/c shady descriptions and effed up MSRP is just the way they roll and I won't support any business like that, in general. I just expect shit to go bad

DB spray painted their shoes with black paint. did Gilt do that?

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.

You may want to try some high end vintage shoes??

Gilt they messed all of the DB shoes. If you look at their Smooth brown they are not smooth brown on the gilt pictures. They are milled brown. I think Gilt also combined the Cordovan and Burgundy all in one . Cordovan colour is only available in leather and the Burgundy is available only in Shell. What our member rennavate" received I am sure is Burgundy . Which is Shell as per DB website. And what namor received is available in both shell and leather. I am thinking gilt also consolidated them and sending what ever to who ever. Becos they are too dumb to put some decent descriptions on their web site.

Namor, keep an eye out for an Allen Edmonds sale, too. They have shell Leeds (similar to Alden PTB) and MacNeils on sale often. And they have seconds in the $300 range right now. Definitely miles better than Duckies.
