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

For all of you in love with navy suede, J Crew has a new pair listed, along with a natty ptb on crepe. Unfortunately there is no price mismatch like with the black shell cadet shoe.

I show the cadets on sale for $499, pretty good deal for those

Are you sure about that? IIRC triceratops only had one butt. Now if they had three butts.....well I guess I am just dreaming. I think I need some professional help. Whenever I see a parade I look at the horse butts to see which would make the best pair of shoes. I have hit rock bottom.

My name is Ahab and I am a shellaholic......

That is just a killer. I want them so bad but even at $500 they are still not in my remodel budget right now. angry.gif

I do this aswell.

Everytime I pass a field of horses with my girlfriend I say "they'll make a nice pair of shoes one day"...needless to say she does not talk to me after that.

Looks like they're actually off the website now, and they raised some prices too.

Did someone just buy literally every pair of cadet bluchers?
