If this is the Jumper boot with dark cognac shell that I'm a part of, I'm a bit disappointed. As the last update given a few weeks ago said it was targeted for end of October completion, I would expect a delay due to shortage of shell to have been noted much earlier in the process and not a week prior to the targeted completion.
It is what it is, I suppose.
I am disappointed too, but if Horween can't provide Shell as promised, there is not much Carmina can do about it unfortunately.
I was told the Dark Cognac Shell Jumper was delayed a few weeks but they did not tell me it was because of Shell shortage.
