You could ask for a Neumok, but I don't know if they would do an unlined pair of shell or not, or you could ask for a Jefferson 2.0 or McAllister with a storm welt, but I'm not sure if they'd allow the welt change.

2. Walnut shell hasn't been available for years. All of us would be ordering shoes in walnut shell if it was, SMU fee (extra $125) be damned. Your current options are dark brown, burgundy, or black.

 

The brown shell above would work great for me - the welt change was why I said McT.  Interesting though - If someone could post the definitive current availability/guidelines/cost/process, that would be great (or is it on the AE site somewhere?).

Those look great! Are those stock laces or did you get them elsewhere? The waxed round laces always seem to damage the suede under them, was thinking flat might be a better option.

I see all the colors they're using now and wish wish wish the MTO was still available. I want some boots made from outrigger or the navy/green leather they only made available (for some reason) on the golf shoes.

When Bernie is president, free shell for all!

So hang on... I go to the Tesla store in the mall... I order 3. Months later two of them aren't exactly how I ordered them and I refuse delivery. This is after I go to check them out. And I have to take my time to explain what's wrong with them. Time is money. Plus I'm hugely (HUGELY) disappointed. Only seems fair to comp me the third one, right? 

 

(And don't you filthy barnweasles even think about stealing my free Tesla idea.)

I wish they would combine the Eagle's smaller heel cup with the sidewall dip of Shaker into a new boot...of course I would want it on the B34 last but could settle on the 511 or 511 G...I really think AE needs to come out with a Barrie type last...something less bulky than the B34 but not as pointy as the next closest last. Though I have to say the B34 crafted for the Oddenwald is totally different looking than the B34 Normandy for whatever reason...perhaps the rigid toe of the Oddenwald
