2. We can work in calfskin, scotchgrain, suede, or shell cordovan. Available shell colors are generally: Saddle, Chestnut, Burgundy (like Color 8), Black, Dark Red, Loden, and Navy. Just like with Alden, Shell Cordovan makeups may be subject to delays - even up to a few months - as it's entirely dependent on the availability of the leather from Horween. The other leathers are all sourced from Europe and
I'd love to see what all the different colors of shell look like. Is that possible?
Intrigued by this discussion. More interested in shell, I think, though it depends on what the other makeup is. I like the whole cut suggestions that have come up. Don't have anything like that. I have to say that a balmoral boot has never crossed my mind. No time like the present, I suppose. Looking at the photos Namor's posted, any thoughts on no perforation on the cap toe?
My vote would be for a split toe monk strap in cognac or burgundy shell, not sure which last though, I'm also worried that they would seem like a regular Carmina makeup when the biggest point in all of this is to make the shoe our own. Ugh but I also love the 532 model with the detroit last.
