I've also heard that the horses are not slimply used just for the shell; that they are old work horses that die of old age/sickness... afaik

 

A couple of years ago, I asked Nick at Horween about Shell leather - he said that the leather they use is a byproduct of the food industry - so, no, they aren't using the leather from horses that have simply died of old age or sickness

Rancourts provide more arch support than Quoddys  - I have a pair of each and find the Rancourts more comfortable

Both make nice looking, quality boat shoes

Have a cobbler do it or do it yourself with coarse sandpaper. I have removed dark edging before, but not on 8 chukkas.

Go ahead and post!

 

Also, do you use shoe trees?

 

Finally, I like the suggestion of wearing something stiff over the tendon the crease bites into.  I also find if you move more vigorously (I'm not saying play a game of football, but maybe some brisk walking/turning) the break in procedure can accelerate due to the increased pressures/forces on the shoe).

I don't think so. I just placed my pre-order today for the pitt boots and the #8 wingtips and was told they have been extremely busy lately and are backed up on answering emails. I would advise calling them.
