Just yesterday I was informed by Alden SF management that they are completely out of exotic shell, and are having a difficult time keeping up with demand for color 8 and black.

in the very near future, we will all be clamoring for black shell and color 8 saying to each other 'wow, how did you obtain that? i'm so jealous'.

We may see more and more CXL and suede make-ups in the coming years...

With the shell shortage maybe it would be easier for horween to source triceratops hides, now that would durable. Not to mention one could probably get more than one pair shoes out of 'em.

I think this can be explained fairly simply. One need not look further than Uncle Mac's closet to explain the shell shortage. satisfied.gif

I think it's a very safe bet that shell in general is getting tough to find in Many sizes, in particular me . Size 14D is a tough to find under good times for the rare shell colors. I feel pretty lucky to have the Ravello NST on Aberdean last. My Whiskey Shell NST on Barrie last are headed back from Alden with the small issue fixed, will have them Thursday and if they look good I will give them the maiden wear.

My Cap Toe Bal Oxfords in #8 will be here Friday. I also went all in and ordered a pair of Straight Tip Bluchers in #8 shell model 2160, and a 987 Leisure Handsewn in black shell. May not keep all of them but wanted see, touch, and try all of them on.

See Ya,
Steve
