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.
