I've had a bottle for a couple of years but since I try not to wear shell cordovan when it's raining out, I haven't really applied it. Should I be?

I use it about 2-3 times a year, too. However, i know I got some water spray on my 975s and I did get those mini raised bumps. Probably won't buy it again when it runs out.  I also avoid shell if the forecast calls for rain.

Speaking of black shell . . . someday I hope they say about me, "He died with his boots on."

I love that Ravello shell, especially in a wingtip shoe or wingtip boot like these!

That B width makes the boot so much more handsome. Superb. Congrats on the pickup!

Thanks guys! @sacafotos, I agree, I really like the look of the narrower boot, but I particularly like the fit! :-)

I agree. Sacafotos, imagine how it would look in my 14 AA. I would love to see how elegant it could look, especially for Alden. I love how their boots have enough substance that in my long narrow, size they keep them elegant but not overly long and narrow.

Would someone be able to explain to me what the difference is in the Shell Cordovan Cap Toe Shoes?

I know that there is a J Crew exclusive and a The Shoe Mart exclusive, is that all there are?

Does Alden continue to make the J Crew exclusives or were those shoe a limited run? Will we see more come in stock?

I'm very new to this so it's all a little bit overwhelming, I can't seem to find a cap toe in a size 8 in cordovan, are they all sold out?

Any help would be appreciated!
