This marks my third pair of burgundy shell shoes in the past three months, so I think I officially have a problem.

Everything Moose22 said is correct.  IMO at regular pricing for BOTH, the Independence line is pretty good value for the bump in materials assuming the 201/65 situation works for you.  But at the SALE price of the Merlot McAllisters right now, thats a really big jump.

 

I would add that the color on the McAllisters is the BURNISHED Merlot, and not the same as the Merlot in the Independence Line (unless they've changed that since the last time I held a Merlot Jefferson).

 

Newbie question here, what's the difference between Merlot and Burnished Merlot?

You may need intervention. Or I could take a pair off your hands if the same size.

What do you guys do for wet weather? Swims? Carry them into the office? Just wear them?

I'm curious as to what others do as well. I often times end up out in the rain however always wear dainite bottoms if the chance of rain is there.

Haha I was waiting for this to appear :)

 

The fact that you can do that speaks wonders.  I'd have to answer from my closet to make sure I didn't miss a pair haha



I golf as well, but very rarely and very poorly recently. Before I had a kid, I would play the local par-3 weekly for practice during summer and cut my score down from the mid-90s to the high-80s in about 3 months. But, now that I don't have the same feel for the short game any more, I'm back to shooting in the mid-to-high-90s.

I wear my Wilberts.  I don't mind if they have to be replaced someday.

Not the best pictures (maybe someone else could post a side by side?) but these might give you a better idea.

I try to wear Dainite but if I don't, I don't worry about it. I just try not to step in puddles. It gives me a good excuse to look for more pairs to put in my rotation.

I'm a golfer too. A 12 handicap. I have looked at the AE golf shoes but I really don't need another pair for golf right now....

Swims.  Sometimes I get a couple of droplets on the uppers, but no big deal.

Beautiful.  And, wow, yes, wood.  I mean, would. 

 

Also, the first step towards recovery is recognizing that you have a problem.

 

This forum is here for you and will help you round out your shell color selection.

PSA: Norstrom has Clifftons and Madison Parks on sale for $244 and Acorn Hilfire Neumoks for $199.

Sorry if this has been posted.

I have two pairs of PAs and a pair 5As.  I think the width is the same but the 5As have slightly more toe room.
