I also own 2 pair of Jump Boots from Leather Soul. One pair is Chromexcel and the other #8. Again, the shell fits looser even compared to the soft Chromexcel.

Interesting. Both of these experiences are the opposite of mine. I went 10 in shell (Barrie last) and 9.5 in oiled nubuck (Trubalance last).

Ive taken my Whiskey Shell Indys through some rough terrain before and theyre perfectly fine.

these look like ones that Blackbird had. I think they're on the Trubalance last. I have a similar pair from Unionmade in brown bison leather and love them. Very lightweight and comfortable!

anyone?

go for it! I have many times.
shell is probably the most durable boot leather there is. That said, I probably wouldn't do it with a pair that I wanted to never get scuffed up.

Just spoke to Mike a few days ago...there is not much ravello shell coming out of the tannery, but ours has come in about 10 days ago, and they're currently working on our boots...I believe he expects them sometime before Christmas.

Me too, november was the end of the window, so don't be surprised with the backlog pushes them closer towards springtime.

BBBF Black Shell LWB. Any can comment on what last these might be? I have them in a 9.5 when most of my Barries are 9. The left shoe fits perfectly, the right is big, much more noticeable on my feet with this last than any other I wear.

please yes go hiking with your shell boots. Put some real wear on them.
post #16800 of 94428
was considering a whiskey nst..but then found the indy in stock in my size. I don't really want another boot, but I feel like I may never get another shot at a whiskey indy

so....whisky indy or nst? smile.gif
