As this is my first pair of Shell boots/footwear, maybe someone here can advise me on what to do before I start wearing it? Should I apply any cream etc?

Thanks in advance![/quote]

I'm far from an expert but I would not apply cream to shell. I would brush and wear on carpet for a few hours before wearing outdoors. Google the 'Mac' break-in method. That's what I follow.

OMG, NO SHOE CREAM. Okay, stay calm. Before you do anything, and I mean anything, google the Mac' break-in method immediately if not sooner. All will be well my friend.

I wear a 8C Barrie and 8D in the AE 5 last.  I am a 8.5C in the Brannock.  The 8D AE 5 is a tad shorter than the 8C Barrie.  I do feel that my left pinky toe hits the the shoe since my left foot is the longer foot (I'm 8D Brannock in the right).  But since the AE5 is longer than the rest of the AE last, I can wear it.  The AE 1 last for example is too snug for me.  I have to wear a true 8.5C in that last.  I think you know that the AE 5 is long and narrow so it affords a bit of length.  You will see that the Barrie is has a more generous toebox so no toe issue here.  But the width of the 8C Barrie is definitely comparable to the 8D AE 5.  Also, the heel of the Barrie may even be a bit more generous.  The 8D Barrie I can't wear.  It's not even possible to keep  my foot steady.

 

Hope this helps.

 

 

Barrie is a tad longer but the AE5 is not far behind.  Length are almost the same.  But there is a big difference in toebox.

 

Heel and throat of Barrie is BIG even comparing 8C with 8D AE5.

Thanks,

 

I just called them about that a few days ago. I think he said returns are accepted within 14 days if shoes are like new, no creases or signs of wear. Best to call them to double check.

I love the color on these shoes. Is this normal brown CXL or something different?

The patina with the reddish purple makes me feel like I'm going to do fix up a car, or do something manly. Haha

Standard CXL. They have had Reno' on them a few times though. They are also almost 3 years old so there is some weathering/patina showing up.

In stock anywhere currently by chance?

They really do look amazing.

I have a pair of unlined suede bluchers in 11E and the Indys in 10.5EEE, would it be safe to order a pair of 975 in 11E or should I opt for 11EE or 11EEE? Leffot is running preorders on the 975 and this a good chance to get an unusal size. Are there any special fit considerations that has to be taken into account with shell?

Good question.
Also, from which retailer? How long ago? Which last? MTO?
Thanks.
