Just an FYI. If you really wanted to keep these, then an option would be to leave the darker shoe in the sun to lighten it up. I have heard of others doing it and it worked well, however, you might not be willing to deal with the hassle.
Thanks, fellas. I will go with black shells. I only have 2 pairs of shells at the moment (#8, cigar). Ravello's should be here in ~6 months. I just need whiskey's and the legendary #4 if I can find it.
At the moment, cigar shells are my favorite of all my Alden's.
Has anyone done a preorder from Shoemart? If so, care to share your experience?
The shoes I want are not in stock. (I always call before placing the order to verify). They told me it would take about 6 months to get it in. I'm OK with that, but just want an opinion from the members on here about their experience.
