I like shell in black but at the prices I have no problem getting black calf. My black shell shoes have zero patina. I can get zero patina with calf.


-1  You may not get the same noticeable patina as other sell colors, but they are clearly a different look than black calf, especially over time.  Black shell and its patina still rock! nod[1].gif

Thanks for your advice!

 

In the same size, the aberdeen is shorter over all, slightly narrower, and the heel-to-ball of foot measurement is shorter.  It's almost like a 1/2 size difference in overall length.

I am interested in this topic as well.  If I wear an 8D in the AE #5 last, what would be the equivalent Aberdeen size?  Seems like you're saying it's 8.5D?  Thanks.

Is this blue suede the same color as the blue suede on the Leather Soul short wing they listed on Monday?

Stevent, I've been on the fence about those unlined PTBs all day.
I just don't wear blue shoes very much.
but they are damn nice looking.
If you're going to go for suedes, why not get something with some character?
